    Desperately predictable, cheap, and condescending. So frustrating as the themes of the film could have led to a genuinely decent film (if written, directed and produced by completely different people). Only positives were the very short scene with the comic genius Pat Shortt, the passion of Fitzpatrick (despite impressively poor dialogue), and Madsen's quiet, dignified portrayal of the (lack of) character he was given to work with.

    A movie with heart and a good story about a dad and his young son and the dad having to do something he promised not to do after a freak accident however after his son becomes ill and goes to the Doc they find out that he needs a operation and the dad has to raise the money by bare knuckle fighting and the story revolves around that whole concept. Vinny Jones plays his role too a tee however Michael Madsen does play the concerned father and fighter well its just when he trys to have the accent of the English it does not work kinda off and on. It's like listening to broken English. A nice movie however it may not be for everyone.

    After half an hour,thought this was going to be one of the worst movies ever,but then seemed to pick up a bit,good to see Madsen back in a half descent movie and Vinnie Jones gives one of the most over the top performances ever as King of the Gypsies.Well worth a look

    Michael Madsen perform ok. Vinnie Jones on the other hand is a master in role of a mean bully.

    Bra Rocky liknande film med en nedtonad Michael Madsen, som gör en dramatisk roll som en avdankad boxare som börja boxas igen för att rädda sin döende son.

    Usual poor performances and storyline and the actual fighting part of the film doesn't happen until its nearly over and by then you've lost interest.
