Storyline

Having just turned thirty years old, former high school star athlete TYLER WELLS is having trouble settling into his comfortable, middle class life. With a baby on the way and his job at a local plant hanging in the balance, he goes for one last roar of the crowd by entering The Iron Masters King of the Ring Contest, a brutal fight contest where the winner fights four fights in one night. When his troubled younger brother GABE enters, Tyler finds himself fighting not only his past present and future, but his own flesh and blood as well. Written by Mickey Fisher

The King of Indie Town.
22 October 2005 | by JongWooKimX9See all my reviews

"The King of Iron Town" is one of those "root for the underdog" stories that you can't help but love. Although I felt it was a little rushed in some spots (overall, I wouldn't have minded it drawing out a lot of the shots -- the movie's engaging enough to allow itself more than 90 minutes to let it soak in), the overall package is completely impressive. For only a $10,000 budget, Mickey Fisher and his crew have created a genuinely touching, honestly-inspired film that has something for everyone. And unlike some other independent ultra low-budget films I've seen, this one sports truly awesome performances (it's no mistake that the cast is made of professionally recognized actors). Every second of this movie speaks volumes, and the only real problem anyone should have with it is that it's over way too soon. Kudos to Mr. Fisher and the rest of Leo's Pride Entertainment for a superb entry into independent cinema.
