Storyline

Six years ago Jack "The Ripper" Stemmons, an American boxer had his career destroyed by a St. Louis bookie. After Jack seeks revenge he is forced into hiding. Jack disappears half way around the world in Thailand. There he falls victim to the addictive spell of Bangkok's exotic and dangerous underworld. Eventually he finds solace in the arms of a beautiful prostitute who has been set in his path by a Russian gangster in order to get Jack back in the ring, This time in Bangkok's notorious underground fight clubs. No matter how hard Jack tries to distance himself from his past, it always hunts him down like a Bad Penny. When a mysterious fight fan appears, it's only a matter of time before Jack's past, present and future accelerate and collide into a twisted climax. Written by Sasha Levinson

Good Flick
29 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

So i just got done watching this flick . I think this was a straight 2 DVD flick . Nevertheless it was mildly entertaining and a good story enough to not get you bored . Also this is the director first time directing a movie so i guess he managed to do a good job . Firstly without revealing too much , its about a boxer who has moved from America to bangkok for certain reasons and meets up with this so called "fan" . I don't think i ever got bored in the film , and i kinda like these low budget / not so Hollywood type movies . Actors in the film do a good job in their roles and everyone did a decent job without over reacting . There is a certain climax in the end , so look out for that too .

Overall i would give this move a 6.5 . Not more , Not less
