Movie Info

On the same night that he was crowned an NCAA wrestling champion, Dillon McCabe (Wes Chatham) was involved in the killing of a cop and then sentenced to fifteen years of prison. Ten years later, Dillon is paroled back onto the streets of his run-down Baton Rouge neighborhood. Before he can pick up the pieces of his life, his best friend gets in trouble with a vicious loan shark. To get the money to free him, Dillon must return to fighting - this time, mixed martial arts. But his quick, brutal success gets him into more trouble than ever. And after three vicious triumphs, he discovers that his real opponent is a corrupt system that requires him to do the impossible: lose. -- (C) After Dark

Audience Reviews for The Philly Kid

The dialogue was terrible. It was almost entertaining in a guy's night in way, but ultimately it sucked.

I will be reviewing all the After Dark Action Movies first of all... The Philly Kid shows that you don't need a A List cast to make a great movie. This is a true gem to rent and a must see for action movie fans.. Its the 2012 version of the Blood Sport or KickBoxer. Also that kid from the classic Idle Hands is in it looking very old now. This is the second best installment of the After Dark Action series which by the way have been great. 3 Stars out of 4
