Tommy Riley's TV has black pen writing on it, written by his dad's debt collectors. The black pen writing changes formation from the scene where it was written on the TV, and where Tommy's dad John left for his new job. See more »

An accidental success
I actually was supposed to rent the Gladiator with Russel Crowe in it but the videos must have been mixed up. Anyway i thoughrouly enjoyed this powerful boxing movie. Some people may cringe at it, as it's rather violent. But the heaps of action and street life is cool and entertains all through the movie.
8/5 out of 10.
