Critic Reviews for American Fighter

All Critics (7) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (3)

  • The cheesy action movie cliches don't quite prevent this from being an enjoyable action movie.

  • B-movie regulars Tommy Flanagan and Sean Patrick Flanery face off as a shady promoter and Ali's grizzled mentor, respectively, but like the uninspired fight scenes, they're barely even going through the motions.

  • Despite exhilarating, well-choreographed fight scenes, it's shallow, unfocused and fails to pack an emotional punch.

  • Here's why you need to see American Fighter. It's the fighting!

    May 20, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • The players give fair value, but not that extra something that would have lent this pathos or made us care. And if you've seen one savage beat-down, you've seen them all.

    May 19, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • American Fighter is hardly as polished as the Hollywood counterparts that it clearly looks up to, but it is a sports drama that wears its heart on its sleeve and has a lead hero that's sweet-natured and very easy to root for.
