true story but not so promising
23 December 2014 | by friendlyclownSee all my reviews

we expect more fighting considering the title of the film but the movie doesn't give us much of what we expect unfortunately. The cast also doesn't provide us with world wide stars except Danny Trejo so it also lacks celebrity charm too. nevertheless the cast we have in this movie did a good work, acting are fine it just needs a little more spice to make us feel better about the film. and because this is a boxing film we have to compare it with the best we have ; rocky, drama level is lower than the legend film and so are the duration of fighting scenes, yet one can always give it a shot for one-time viewing only not too bad not too good
