Hot boxer
14 May 2006 | by tentenderSee all my reviews

By no means a great movie, this feature-length promotion film for the Golden Gloves nevertheless has one riveting feature: the performance of Dewey Martin. It's his first film as a star, and he makes the most of it, playing an exceptionally aggressive street kid. Contrasted with his performance in "The Thing," in which he is exceptionally nice, it is clear that the kid could act. For those who find him sexually attractive (and there are many), this film offers glimpses of a nicely-put-together physique (in boxer shorts, of course) as well as that adorable face. In other words: it's a Dewey fest! -- and highly recommended as such.
