The worst film ever made!
11 October 2003 | by brew-10See all my reviews

Not only does this have a wafer thin plot, the makers of this garbage have no idea how to film a boxing scene. The viewer becomes fully aware that the director has never seen Rocky, Raging Bull, Harder They Fall, Requiem For A Heavyweight, or Tokyo fist. Do your homework! Who in their right mind would film everything from outside the ring?!? These idiots do! This is complete garbage. Does not work on any level. Wouldn't even work as an after school special. AVOID AT ALL COST!
