Sir Billy Connolly said that he had been waiting for a good reason to finally shave off his famous goatee beard, but never had one, until Director David Leland asked him to do it for this movie. After doing so, he remarked that when he saw himself in the mirror, "he looked like a potato". See more »

Nice timepass movie
27 March 2020 | by siddharthsurveSee all my reviews

It was a nice low budget movie. Liam Neeson's acting was fabulous in the film. I watched this movie because I am on a mission to complete watching all Liam Neeson's movie. If you are a boxing fan and Liam Neeson is your favorite, it's a must watch.
