Man of conviction, following his dreams
25 March 2001 | by allenmanSee all my reviews

This was a wonderful film, I was completely surprised on how well it was done. The story was very good, and the action scenes were much more realistic that those of the "Rocky" series. The film contained some scenes that were a little intense but it fits the real world. Wonderful job!

I want to see it again, and also get the film on video.
