A boxing movie, overall a decent movie with plenty of drama, but I felt boxing was over-glorified in this film, and it gets very draggy near the ending.
I've never thought of Kitano Kii as a good actress nor very cute, but this movie changed my mind. Despite her small frame, she fit the role very well and her moves were pretty cool. Definitely a must-see for her fans. Hayashi Kento's acting was a bit annoying though. The subplot between Oosawa Takao and Sakurai Sachiko's characters was really touching for me. The two veteran actors were very effective as supporting cast.
I guess this is a typical Japanese sports movie. Those with interest in boxing would like it.
