The film's great achievement is not in the way it manages to drop us suitably wimpy audience members right into a good ol' fashioned no-holds-barred fight, but that it can be ... touching, heartbreaking and emotionally satisfying at the same time.
There have been a lot of movies about fighting, but few have been more personal and emotional than this one about a whole family of fighters divided by a bitter past of desertion, alcoholism, regret and death.
Just enough unexpectedly terrific moments of big-ticket emotion and quiet introspection to make a cliché-barraged first hour and eye-rolling plot turns feel more disappointing. Still, it boasts vivid fight choreography and a trio of top performances.
