Clubbed is a whopper of a big budget movie. It's many movies in one. It's a movie about boxing. It's a movie about the early eighties disco scene. It's a movie about mobsters, about the good guys and the bad guys. It's a movie about how drug dealing can destroy relationships and lives. There are some stomach churning images of violence and also some harsh language so be prepared for that, but there are also plenty of touching moments. It is about a father's relationship with his daughters, a flawed man's relationship with his pregnant wife, a fearful man's relationship with is ex-wife, and the camaraderie between grown men. Clubbed is a story about friendship, about fate, about revenge. It's a big movie in every way, as perfect as a crime epic can be. Truly great cinema!
