Good fight scenes but typical boring figtht movie.
27 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fight scenes are great, well choerographed and exciting.

Howeva the rest of the movie is the typical bad-boy from the streets gives up everything for fighting takes the wrong path disappoints his family. And now the only way to get back everyhting he lost from fighting is to get back in the ring for a big final fight. of course we have the training montage and the kindly old trainer task master imparts the wisdom of life. The opening scene that explains the RED CANVAS was a white canvas where Viet-Nam POW were forced to fight to the death. it was stained red from the blood. A story about EPW's fighting to death would've been more interesting than this one. Hell another story about prisoners fighting to death (has been to death) would have been more interesting than this. If you like fight movies skip this one, or fast forward thru the drama.
