Storyline

Ray 'Harley' Davidson is a hustler. With flash clothes and a fast mouth, Harley lives life in the fast lane. With his passion for all things gambling, money runs like water through Harley's hands and as quickly as he makes a killing he takes a beating, normally at the poker table. Nominally an illegal prize-fight manager, Harley hasn't produced a live one in months, until Charles Buchinsky literally wanders into his life. Charles Buchinsky, street fighter extraordinaire. He's from out of town looking for a fight and the chance to tie up a few loose ends. Keeps himself to himself, lets his fists do the talking and his word is his bond. Victor Maitland, top illegal fight promoter and porn baron. Hates losing and loves the prestige of managing the best hitter in town. Harley dreams of bringing Maitland down and after seeing Buchinsky at work, engineers a fragile partnership. The duo soon becomes a hot ticket, Charles knocking out all-comers, Harley cleaning up the side-bets. Old habits ... Written by Joe Long

crap
23 July 2008 | by lil_alxSee all my reviews

this film isn't even worth the time or enormous effort in watching, just by watching the trailer you will understand the reasoning to which i am giving this film a one out of ten. And believably enough that it is enough to bore you to tears to the point where you would rather die than continue to watch the next thirty seconds of highlights, the acting is worse than mediocre and is as if the people were told the lines and mechanically told to re site them, i can not act to save my life however i could of done a better job myself and stopped people from wanting to commit suicide, not very entertaining at all with the people speaking as if pretending it was real, no story line, unrealistic fight scenes with bad prosthetic blood. incredibly bad use of Geordie language which is embarrassing to the Geordie accent. this review is just from clips and the trailer to which i saw no reason to torture myself any longer and put myself through the whole film. quite frankly it is the biggest flop of a film i could have ever imagined and such a shame considering the cause the money is going to .
