Great Movie!!
27 September 2005 | by steph-194See all my reviews

I saw this movie and I loved it. Very exciting action combined with very moving drama. Boxing sequences very realistic. Also enjoyed cameos by Mary Woronov and Amy Hill.

It is very interesting how a color film can capture the mood of film noir so effectively. Hats off to the production designer.

The guy who plays the boxer has an awesome body which you see plenty of in the sexy shower scene.

This film also deals with difficult subject matter and it is handled with great sensitively.

I don't normally watch boxing movies, but this film is so much more than a typical boxing movie. Deep and moving.
