Storyline

Michael Dublin is a full-time con man working the underground boxing circuit. A lonely drifter on the run from a past best forgotten, he moves from one scam to another, leaving a trail of enemies in his wake. Dublin invents his best scam yet when he meets Katherine Paker, a female fighter with the skills to take down a man twice her size. In a scheme Dublin calls "fight-rigging, in reverse", the two hit the road working fights in seedy basement bars, abandoned warehouses, and backwoods county fairs. But Dublin's shady past catches up with them and suddenly the stakes are higher - and more dangerous - than they'd ever imagined. Written by anonymous

It is what it is
16 December 2011 | by rangerbagelSee all my reviews

Bad acting, tight fighting scenes, hot brutal lesbian, fake Tom Cruise. What more could you want in a cheap boxing movie?

I sat here at work just now and watched this on Netflix. It doesn't throw any curve balls, but then it isn't a baseball movie.

So, what, right hook? There's some stuttering redneck who can't shoot, a big bearded bald guy who's shaped like a T, and a lot of burnt-sienna makeup to lay out those deep, dark bruises.

There's some slapped-together depth to these characters that's kind of haphazard because I don't see these characters really talking about themselves much. But, really, the style to me is very cultish. If it were less bloody, I suspect a lot of giggling fabulistas would flock to it at midnight with tape around their knuckles.

I dig. It's bad. But I dig.
