Storyline

A former world-renowned legend in the wrestling universe, 'Magnificent Max' abruptly plummeted from glory after his manager Shelly instructed him to alter his persona into a villain, for 'the good of the federation.' Gorgeous George he was not, as fifteen years later Max finds himself routinely throwing fights to any average Joe with enough cash in their name to afford a shiny one-piece. When Max's self-respect is at an all-time low, Shelly unexpectedly returns to offer him one final opportunity to wrestle in the big leagues. There's just one catch: Max would have to relive the painful history-making fight that skyrocketed the career of current crowd-favorite Duke Demolition and prematurely ended the legacy of 'Magnificent Max.' However, this time around Max has his eyes set on rewriting the rules of the sport for good, and on his own terms... Written by Jack Price

Max was Magnificent
5 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Charley Rossman as Max, His performance was heartfelt and true. Nice work. The film, Had a very nice B/W feel and the use of light was well conceived. The wrestling was well done and believable. Kudos and bravo.

Except for a few, the supporting roles were very well cast. But the lead really stood out. Charley/Max is a great listener and reacts truly.You could really sense his conflict and his courage. The resolution with the son was very sweet but not over the top. We especially liked the reflection in the poster shot, Max was right on there and it rang true. Charley Rossman is a character actor, who we've seen around but who we'd like to see a lot more of. The film was well directed by Jack Price, whom I don't know, but who has some nice sensibilities. The script by Sebastian Davis was knowing. A Fan
