Storyline

Henry "Razor" Sharp and Billy "The Kid" McDonnen are two boxers who thirty years ago were rivals. Just before a big match Razor decides to retire because Billy slept with his girlfriend, Sally Rose and got her pregnant. Today a promoter, Dante Slate wants to have them fight each other but Razor doesn't want to. But when he loses his job and learns he's broke, he has no choice. So he trains under his old trainer. Billy while training, meets B.J., the son he had with Sally Rose and he asks B.J. to train him. And Sally Rose tries to get Razor to forgive her but he can't. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

In a scene, while training, Razor is about to punch hanging raw meat in a meat locker and is told not to by Lightning because it is unsanitary. This is a nod to the Rocky scene where he does break the ribs and obviously doesn't care if it it unsanitary. See more »

Goofs

The first time you see the viral footage shown of Razor and the Kid fighting for the video game is from the actual phone used. You can clearly see the crew filming the scene including cameraman and boom guy. See more »

A knockout of a non-boxing movie about boxers
19 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie outstanding. I do love Rocky and Raging Bull, but this was a movie about not letting go of things that hold you back. Like grudges. This is a movie about what is important in life, like family. This is a movie about what it means to win with honor, and to stand on your feet and be a man about it.

I think a lot of people were expecting this to be Raging Bull 2, or the next Rocky installment, but that's not what it's about at all. It uses those two characters to convey a different message that is important for all. I highly recommend it.

On top of it all, Kevin Hart provides a great amount of humor (because he is hilarious), and Stallone and DeNiro are veteran actors who are not past their prime at all. This movie is well-cast, well-acted, and original.
