Its All About The Beard!
13 November 2018 | by skip-98756See all my reviews

Not really,but the beard played a big part! This was a pretty good movie, it kept my interest and touched on matters beyond boxing...The lead actor,did a very good job acting and even looks a hell of alot like the real guy the movie was based on...The lawyer girl did great as well,but the reason i watched was for mickey rourke..I like most anything he has been in,and he also has boxed himself in younger days...It was jarring and a bit sad to see him so old and frail looking,he has lost so much weight and muscle...If you remember him from Domino, or The Wrestler and recall how big and imposing he was, then see him now, it is quite shocking,,Hopefully he is well,I thought he looked so much better with some mass, but we all age and look more frail as the yrs pass, its life.. Mickey did great as the quirky trainer..What is badly lacking is decent boxing skills in the fight scenes....marginal, and amatuerish at best, but this movies is Not boxing centric...It is focused more upon human rights issues and the acting was good throughout... the lead guy,he did a fine job and was very likeable as a person... a different boxing movie,done well enough to hold ones interest...
