A Must See
4 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I attended a private viewing of "To Be King" with my son, an inspiring professional boxer, we were thoroughly entertained at the content of this film, a true urban tale of a fighters plight and will to succeed despite the obstacles placed before him, on his road to success. The acting was excellent and all of the characters brought color to the film and the lead actors life. The lead character Nigel Harvey had me truly convinced that he was a professional pugilist or at least a professional trainer at the Starret City Boxing Club, I especially commend Nigel's work as for he struggled with the untimely lost of his beloved mother during the filming. The spirit of Jimmy O' was very present as well. 5 STARS
