Boxer Billy Hope turns to trainer Tick Willis to help him get his life back on track after losing his wife in a tragic accident and his daughter to child protection services.
I was slightly interested in seeing this film but was apprehensive about seeing it in the cinemas because it looked like such a depressing movie.
I did end up seeing it in the cinemas but I’m glad to say that’s it not a depressing as I thought it was going to be.
Don’t get me wrong; there are pretty much no happy moments in this film. Once is wife is killed, it’s pretty much just a sad fest for the rest of the film.
Having said that, it still is a good film. The fight scenes look authentic and real, it’s brilliantly acted by some of movies biggest hitters and gets better when Forest Whitaker appears.
While it is predictable, it was still an entertaining watch.
