It is a rather unknown boxe flick but since there was a decent cast, I still though I should check it out. Eventually, I thought it was not bad at all. First of all, there was indeed a nice cast (Samuel L. Jackson, Jeff Goldblum, Peter Berg, John Rhys-Davies, Jamie Foxx) and they all gave some rather decent performances.
