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. Basically, it is a dark satire on the boxing world and I thought it was actua... read more

"August 20 "Hey, we ain't duckin' you man. You're just so black we can't find you!" This was an underrated movie. It had some good laughs and it was cool to see Jamie Foxx in one of his early roles. Nothing great, but better than I thought it was going to be. "

Basically, it is a dark satire on the boxing world and I thought it was actually pretty interesting. The main issue, I thought, is that they didn't take the material really seriously enough as they were just interested to provide some quick and shallow laughs.
