Not Bad.....!
28 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was better than I expected it to be. I enjoyed the boxing scenes the most, although the cinematography throughout was uniquely stylized.

My next-door-neighbor Vance Thompson played the boxing referee in this film. He is an actual retired boxing referee, as well as a swing-dance champion, wood sculptor, ex-con and senior Olympian. He also appeared on the cover of the "Riverfront Times" several years ago under the headline "The Dresser". If you would like to cast a true St Louis character (and style icon) in your next film, please contact Vance at 314-968-8614.
