Editorial Reviews

Michael Dublin is a full-time con man working the underground boxing circuit. A lonely drifter on the run from a past best forgotten, he moves from one scam to another, leaving a trail of enemies in his wake. Dublin invents his best scam yet when he meets Katherine Parker, a female fighter with the skills to take down a man twice her size. In a scheme Dublin calls fight-rigging, in reverse, the two hit the road working fights in seedy basement bars, abandoned warehouses, and backwoods county fairs. But Dublin's shady past catches up with them and suddenly the stakes are higher - and more dangerous - than they'd ever imagined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Purchase! October 22, 2009
Format:DVD
I saw this fight flick on Showtime and had to add it to my library.
Chad Ortis "Mike Dublin" should become an A-Lister - he's a very good actor. He times throw-aways well and was a convincing sleazoid manager.
Rebecca Neunswander is captivating in her role as the fighter and she's also a very good actress. Ortis and Neunswander should do more films together - there was some great chemistry.
Despite all it's violence and blood gore, there's something about this movie that wins you over. Perhaps it's the great dialog between the characters? Kudos to writer Ian Schorr for excellent screenwriting.
(Disclaimer: I do not know any of these people. I was simply impressed that they created a fight flick that was actually interesting to watch, was well-written and acted -- and it stayed clear of the all-too typical fight movie cliches.)
Go "Speedy"! ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Surprise!! May 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Slyly Starts Off As A Typical B-Action Movie, Morphing Into A Poignant Character Study Of Two Lost People Trying To Find Their Way. I Actually Enjoyed This MUCH More Than The Highly Celebrated Female-Fighter-With-A-Twist Movie, "Million Dollar Baby".

With All Due Respect To Hilary Swank's Buff-Looking Boxer, Former Martial Arts Champ Rebecca Neunswander is NOT Only The More Credible Fighter, Convincingly Taking Out Most Of Her Rivals With Skill And Quickness As Much As With Strategy; But Along With Chad Otis As The Opportunistic Promoter Michael Dublin, Gives A Top-Notch Performance As Drifter Katherine Parker, A Refreshing Rarity From The Mostly Wooden, Martial Artist-Turned-Action-Heroes That Are Usually Cast In These Films.

Even With The Different Direction That Editor/Producer/Director Johnathan Dillon Takes With This Film, It Has Enough, Excitingly Staged Fight Scenes Throughout To Please The Average Action Movie Fan; And It's An An Absolute SHAME That A Major Studio Didn't Pick Up This
Film And Give It The Push It TRULY Deserved.

To ANY Studio Exec Reading This Review, Take A Look At This Film, The Two Leads, And The Producer/Director At The Helm, And Get A Deal Going With ALL Three; A Goldmine Awaits!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A B film that merits a grade of "A" July 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you like the premise of a film about aspiring female fighters and were disappointed with Clint Eastwood's overly morbid Oscar winner on the subject, then please give this film a try. It is excellent by any measure. The star, Rebecca Neunswander, is a combination of strong, independent, but also vulnerable and soft(at times) that some men seek all their lives. The male lead was excellent, doing a "film noire" job of running a two-bit boxing promotion business while being penniless. The film plays with our emotions, as all great films do, but provides a "payoff" at the end which I won't spoil for you. I purchased the film with no expectations at all; the entire cast was unknown to me. Having seen it, I am very glad to have bought it and wonder just what DOES constitute a hit movie and a "star", as this film and its major players both deserved higher station in the Hollywood pantheon.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Indie Movie! June 28, 2009
Format:DVD
WOW! I really didn't know what to expect from this movie but was blown away at by how good it was. It is very entertaining and the actors/actresses were excellent. It had alot of violence (boxing of course) but also had some good action, drama and touching moments. It kept my attention the whole time and I was cheering for Kathryn Parker, the female fighter. I hope the writer and director makes alot more movies! Oh and the reviewer that gave it one star and said he'd give it zero....well you know there's always one in a bunch. Oh well.

3.0 out of 5 stars ROCKY VS. KARATE KID April 30, 2011
Format:DVD
Chad Ortis played Michael Dublin, an unlikable cocky Tom Cruise wanna-be. He is a hustler and illegal fight promoter or fight rigger. He happens on Katherine Parker (Rebecca Neuenswander), a woman who can beat any man in the ring. She reluctantly teams up with Dublin as they travel cross country. As it so happens he is not the best or brightest. His character remains unlikeable as we pity the poor girl who is stuck with him. In Florida both their pasts catch up with them as they go into the final climax match.

What I thought was odd is that they went to great lengths to make Kathrine Parker look like she has been ugly beaten in the face, while she had a full set of straight white teeth. Dublin healed rather quickly from his beatings, apparently because they were using all the black and blue make-up on Katherine. The movie starts out with a first person narration by Dublin in a seedy motel room, then flashes back a month to start the movie. What I don't recall is that at no point did they return to that scene. That is proper movie etiquette.

This movie was originally released under the title "Rigged." Brief nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars good movie, fairly realistic too October 20, 2010
By BruceL
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this movie.

It was not Hollywood-style, and its characters were real -
with the possible exception of the fighter holding her own
against much larger male fighters.

If you liked this movie and 'Bend it like Beckham', I
recommend the movie Fighter - which is sort of a mix of
those two movies.
Fighter - Starring Molly Blixt Egelind, Cyron Bjørn Melville, et al.
(DVD - 2009).
