Expected very little, ended up with a lot
30 December 2014 | by John Tore MølstreSee all my reviews

I expected very little from this movie. I noticed I wasn't really in the mood for a movie after a couple minutes watching it, but I was too lazy to turn it off. And I'm happy I didn't. I wasn't really into the movie in the beginning, and I didn't understand why they had to cut off the fighting scene all the time with these flashbacks. However after a couple, these flashbacks started telling a compelling back-story of the older fighter. So I naturally parted with him, since I'm always trying to find a hero and a villain in the movies. Then the movie slowly introduced the back-story of the other fighter and I was torn. Who am I rooting for now? What is this? "Too many feels!"

I don't want to tell too much of the story, but it follows two boxers who have their own reasons for stepping into the ring. And this movie tells those stories in a unique way. I don't think I've ever seen a fighting movie where there was only one fight, but this was perfect. I really enjoyed the movie, and if you like deeper, emotional fighting or sports movies, this movie is a great pick for both you and girl on any night of the week.
