Storyline

Lex 'El Animal' Vargas is a promising Portorican boxer in Queens, but lacks ambition to aim for the big career. That changes after his brother Paulie is accidentally shot dead by a teenager in an amateur hold-up on their late dad's shop, which he now closes to turn professional boxer. His star rises fast, but success brings its own problems, as he he lacks experience to handle professionals and resist the abuse they and his ghetto past entourage make of his generous nature. (...)

a stereotypical boxing movie with an abrupt ending
28 July 2003 | by MLDinTNSee all my reviews

This movie was OK, but nothing too exciting. In the story, a young boxer moves up from the ameteurer ranks to turn pro. Then, he hooks up with a shady manager and eventually becomes a title holder while losing friends along the way. He hooks up with a girl that they call a give-me girl because she just hangs around rich guys. And we have many stereotypical scenes of the boxer's old friends coming around asking for money and the boxer moves into a huge house.

I have two complaints. One is John Leguizamo is too old to play the boxer. In the beginning, an ameteur boxer would probably be 18. Well, he already looks like he's in his 30's. The second is the abrupt ending. It just sort of stops, with no conclusion or anything. The boxer is just walking to the ring for another match.

FINAL VERDICT: If you like boxing, then you may like it. Otherwise, I wouldn't see it.
