Movie Info

While visiting his former boxing trainer Denis O'Leary (Richard Chamberlain), aging widower Sean Kelleher (Michael Madsen) hears about a bare-knuckle fight that could earn him the quarter million dollars he desperately needs to pay for a lifesaving operation for his ailing young son. But to win, Kelleher will have to break a promise to his late wife and risk his life in the ring against the bloodthirsty six-time champion, a wild-eyed fighter named Smasher O'Driscoll (Vinnie Jones).

  • Director-screenwriter Mark Mahon is unable to inject any freshness whatsoever into this highly formulaic genre piece, though he has elicited several good performances.

    December 13, 2007
  • The script delivers a series of low blows to the intelligence from which auds will never recover.

  • Under Mark Mahon's by-the-numbers direction, Strength and Honour is a standard soaper that might be helpful to watch when you're suffering from insomnia some night.

  • There is not a real character to be found, nor a single convincing punch thrown. But I do like the name 'Smasher'.

    michael madsen comes off well in this irish drama, and vinnie jones as a gypsy, not really learning anything from his time on the set of snatch where brad pitt played a exellent pikey. a drama with some heart, and some good scenes of fighting thrown in
