Loser..

In this rousing crowd-pleaser, a former arm-wrestling champion raised in the US returns to South Korea for a tournament that could return him to glory. As he trains for the most intense fight he's ever faced, he finds his life complicated by the appearance of the biological family he never knew. Champion feels like watching the classic 1987 Over the Top movie with Sylvester Stallone unfortunately tho this was the bad version of it. With the terrible acting, the over the top dramatic moments and silly characters being on the center stage. (0/10)
