Yes, both Channing Tatum and Zulay Henao... have careers for their looks alone, and they'd have better careers delivering pizza than delivering dialogue.

Call a movie Fighting, you expect action. Only include shots of Channing Tatum shirtless in the trailer, you expect to see half-naked Tatum. Fighting doesn't deliver either.

Channing Tatum (GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra) is crazy beautiful, and perfectly cast as a slow, troubled young man.

the protagonist happens to be played by an actor who looks more like a fashion model than tough street fighter

Fighting consistently feels like a patchwork of better movies without their excitement or rooting interest in character.

At the Movies (Australia)

There's something interesting in this film and that's the reality it brings to its subject matter. Scenes seem real. And that's a lot to do with the performances. They're all terrific. But there's the reality of New York too, there's grit here.

FILMINK (Australia)

Despite the formulaic script and cringe worthy moments, the performances from the leads and creation of the subculture are well executed by director Montiel.

The only thing you'll be 'fighting' is your lagging attention span.

Montiel and his collaborators can pat themselves on the back for elevating empty material just a bit, but this is disposable cinema, designed to hit and run after an opening weekend. [Blu-ray]

Entertaining and engaging, Fighting has action, romance and a buddy element in a tight, professional package

Fighting is a testosterone-driven movie full of blood, beautiful women, big muscles and enough plot to be a good movie.

Times [UK]

All of this, however, is plainly just a veneer on a solidly generic punch-up movie, and it thus becomes a drag. A more cartoonish approach would probably have been more fun.

While everything is highly predictable, the film is well designed and bone-crushingly violent fights are ably staged in Brooklyn.

Quite how that will go down with his testosterone-fuelled, spotty audience, I have no idea.

The problem is that, even with some very strong acting, we're never quite convinced to believe either the relationships or situations.

The tell-it-as-it-is title hardly indicates anything out of the ordinary, but this bare-knuckle boxing flick is put together with more love than you'd expect.

Like a poor man's Fight Club, Fighting is hardly a heavyweight. But with an enjoyable performance from Terrence Howard, the film is no disaster.

There are no surprises here - this is a story that has been told before, many times. But Tatum gives us a glimpse of the charisma that could make him a star.

You couldn't call Fighting great - at its core it is simply too cruddy - but Montiel has managed to inject it with the smell and feel of the streets that he clearly once knew well.

Montiel's film lands on its feet with a gripping, will-he-or-won't-he third act - it's worth the wait.
