Tour de force by Dorff and Mann.A must see!
22 November 2020 | by lukasiljegSee all my reviews

What a brilliant performances by these two. They deserve oscar nominations for this. Movie is at times slow,yeah, it has some flaws and it needs time to get you there, but that last fight between Cash and Jett. Holly s**!That fight is far superior than any fight scene in Warrior. Brutal, visceral and hearbreaking. Don't believe some user reviewers here, this is a strong movie overall with outstanding acting by newcomer Mann and the most underused and underutilized actor in Hollywood today Stephen Dorff. A must see.
