Storyline

The story of Howard Winstone is a compelling one. Howard became Featherweight Champion of the World at the age of 29 in 1968. What makes Howard's story quite remarkable is that as a young man he lost the tips of three fingers in an industrial accident of his home town of Merthyr Tydfil. The accident was so severe that he was unable to make a fist with his right hand, a devastating blow for anyone, but a blow made all the worse for one who's entire career demands the use of both hands. Howard was known for his right handed power back in his early day's so the day of the fateful accident was essentially the day Howard's boxing career came to an end. Well that's what everyone assumed accept Howard, who completely changed the way he boxed and went on remarkably to become Champion of Britain, Champion of Europe and Champion of the world! The story of Howard Winstone's boxing career alone is a remarkable one, but there was far more to Howard than just his boxing career, in Howard there was ... Written by Anonymous

Not comparing to ANY film but at least they tried!
14 July 2011 | by ralph25911See all my reviews

Was invited for a screening of this at the Empire Leics. Sq today. Film started out draggingly slow, but it did not accelerate any quicker either. Honestly, the film makers did their best and the fight scenes although not staged were; should I use the word impressive here?; real enough. Others who have reviewed this keep comparing this to Raging Bull and moaning about the lack of quality, why did you watch it then? This cost £200K to produce, how much did it cost producers of Raging Bull? Life in Wales is not exciting as many would like so if you fancy some high voluting production then do not watch this or compare it to ANY Hollywood or mega bucks production. It took them 5 years from start to finish, running into difficulties, all appreciated, but losing ones fingers can set a person back quite badly, THIS the film fails to concentrate on, but steers towards Howards punishing hope to attain the TITLE. I was fidgeting throughout, trying to eat my way through Jelly Babies but failed! I would still say Go see it but don't expect the Glitz! Enjoy!
