how do you get one of those?
That sounds like the golden ticket right there.
Altagracia Guzman (abuela) is basically playing the same role that got her notoriety in Raising Victor Vargas, which is by all means a superior film.
Zulay I first saw in Feel The Noise, which is a way worse flick than Fighting would ever be.
So, that puts Fighting in the 5/10 category; I think this is honestly the best Tatum has done to date, and I hope this keeps the fight-based movies coming to the big screen.
I have heard that HARD TIMES with Bronson was inspiration for this movie, so I'm about to check that out this week. All in all, it's not a good movie, but inspired me to watch better, so it's in the right place at the right time... We've got Wolverine and Star Trek coming up, so Fighting will soon be a distant memory.
Nice review, though.
Avoid avoid avoid. If its the same movie I have in mind, the one with Aweseome-Incarnate Ron Perlman and Thom Jane (It is) then it sucks.

But that what bothers you first, you punch real hard.
I can't believe I didn't see this review earlier. I absolutely loved Fighting and was planning on doing a review of it myself. Glad to see you've already got it covered.
