User Reviews

Very original
27 February 2015 | by athena-no-saintoSee all my reviews

Great boxing drama which through a very original script and editing recreates a boxing match in which between rounds and through long flashbacks we find out the reasons why boxers are fighting in that fight.

One of the great virtues of the film is it's originality in the way that tells the story, not resembling to any other movie of the genre, being the less important of the film the boxing match and focusing more in the human drama that both fighters are going through Damian Lee, director and screenwriter of the film achieved in a outstanding way to keep you interested until the ending of the story.

The film is starring by a great Dominic Purcell who lead a cast with some established names such as James Caan , Louis Gosset JR and Famke Jamssen who also displays a very nice performance.

There is a brief a appearance of Freddie Roach that boxing fans will probably enjoy Highly recommended
