It will ruin your way of seeing boxing movies, for god sake chose another movie.
23 January 2012 | by NilefriiSee all my reviews

I watched this movie because of my new love for the TV series 'Once upon a time' were Josh Dallas plays one of the main characters. I think he is extremely hot and when I saw that he was in a boxer movie, and me loving boxing I thought it was just to good to be true. But oh dear was I wrong. The script feels like it has been written by a 14 year old and the execution was even worse. The actors just doesn't come through making the script feel any worse. It is so cliché, to the frustrated guy who doesn't wants to box at first but then learns to love it. Obviously he is an ex con and with a mysterious troubled past. Of course there is the bad guy who just can't stand the main guy and just have to make everything worse for him. And domdomdom.. there is a girl, who of course is together with the bad guy, making even more trouble for our hero. Me being a student in film making am sad to see how a movie can get so wrong, the filming isn't even good. and as the cherry on top of the cream the trainer smokes through every scene of the movie, I mean come on didn't we leave cigarettes in movies back in the 50's. In conclusion,don't see it. If you want to see a boxing movie watch The fighter, Rocky, million dollar baby, never back down etc. To save your self from losing 1 & half hour of your life you will never get back, do not see this horrible thing called a movie.
