Punch is a fascinating curiosity, in some ways as confused and unresolved as its characters.

This is a good premise, but written and acted in a fashion that rings false.

A flawed film that despite having some curiosities ends up looking too smart for its own good.

[B]izarre, would-be literary exploration of incestuous father-daughter attraction, anger management, and women beating the crap out of each other...

In some respects, Punch still packs some, but it will leave you feeling woozy and glad when the bell rings.

Audience Reviews for Punch

Ariel seems too dependant on her dad Sam. When this dependency is threatened by Sam's girlfriend (Mary), Ariel punches her. It turns out that Mary's sister is a boxer. Who knows what will happen?
