This is another in a continuing film series in which Danny Trejo plays a larger part on the cover than he does in the film. At least a zombie doesn't eat him after 10 minutes. Based on a true story the film opens up with Emilio (Alvaro Orlando) in a south Miami mental health facility. We don't know what he did, but he is being punished by being locked alone in a cell with Danny Trejo trying to be his friend. Emilio describes the events that lead up to this scene.

We find out Emilio, who grew up with hoodlums, was rescued by his uncle Frank (Oscar Torre) who taught him how to box. Emilio is an undisciplined boxer with a lot of energy who dreams of fighting for the Golden Gloves. Toss in a female promoter and love interest (Camila Banus) an old dog, a mom (Yeniffer Behrens) with an abusive boyfriend (Steven Bauer), the predictable music montage training sequence and championship fight and you pretty much have a formula film.

The acting was decent. The women were pretty, apparently ugly is outlawed in Miami as it is in California. While the film is about a boxer, there is relatively little ring action. Might work as a rental. A guy film a woman can watch.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, N-word. Woman being choked. Brief attempted rape scene. Brief sex scene. No real nudity.

Although Danny Trejo is given top billing and appears on the cover, his part is very small. Of course, he is excellent in that small part. The rest of the movie was your average "poor boy makes good", not a bad movie to rent but I wouldn't buy it.
