Okay, so I have seen a lot of boxing movies and honestly you cannot deviate from the formula. The formula for a boxing movies are, the boxer's flourishing career comes to an abrupt end for some reason, and in the middle of his slump is asked to return even thought reluctantly and trains hard and starts again from the bottom. Add in a father son relationship and you have a boxing movie.
Nothing new in the story department, but all I can say is that the script is well written and the boy can seriously act. It is a solid movie
movie rating: 7.5/10.0
