Editorial Reviews

One fought to win. The other fought to survive. Two friends are pitted against each other by a corrupt boxing promoter in a brutal battle that threatens to destroy their friendship and lives. Cuba Gooding, Jr. (As Good as it Gets, Boyz N the Hood, Jerry Maguire) and James Marshall (Twin Peaks) star as the talented amateurs who are exploited by the ruthless promoter Horn (Brian Dennehy, F/X, F/X 2) and his scout (Robert Loggia, Jagged Edge) in the fight of their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gladiator - Cuba Gooding Jr., & James Marshall January 18, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excellent Movie. One of my favorite movies that these actors made together.

Cuba Gooding Jr. is great in this movie, no wonder he is a great movie star and James Marshall doesn't get enough credit as an actor, he needs to play more roles like this... they way the filmed this movie was great... old fashion, made you feel you were right there with them.

Cuba Gooding Jr. was an upcoming star at this point, it just was starting out in his carrer... look at him now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun boxing movie.. August 3, 2002
After seeing some of the reviews, I decided to go ahead and buy this movie as well. I was very pleased and enjoyed the movie. It's nothing serious like the first two Rocky movies, but light hearted action fun. It pretty quick paced so you don't get bored. I'd compare it more to being similar to Rocky IV in terms of pacing. The story is simple enough about a young, white boxer who, through a turn of bad luck, finds himself in the poorhouse and has to box to settle his dad's gambling debts. The acting is believable unlike the recent Star Wars Attack of the Clones fiasco. Cuba Gooding and James Marshall both put in great performances. The boxing, although a little over the top sometimes,is still great to see although I'd like to have seen longer training sequences. The quality of the dvd picture is great as well. What they don't mention on Amazon's techincal data is that the dvd has both a widescreen and standard full format presentation on either side of the disc so you can watch the movie whatever way you want. I'd definitely recommend this disc for the boxing movie enthusiast.

Format:VHS Tape
A terrific movie about underground boxing, teenagers caught in the web of a viscious promoter and the ultimate triumph of friendship. There was humor and great action to go with a compelling story. I loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first real hit called gladiator May 10, 2001
By A Customer
This film is as good if not better than the latest film of the same name. It does not depend on special effects (in the form of a fat budget) to keep you interested, I just cannot stop whatching it, I must have seen it over 50 times. It is with out a doubt one of those films you can whatch over and over (like "Starwars"). Everyone I know who has seen it has gone out and bought it. The story line and the acting are excellent, they really hit the nail on the head with the realism.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must see" movie! April 25, 2006
I am a big Cuba Gooding, Jr. fan. I have seen most of his movies, included among those, "Boyz N The Hood," "Gladiator," "Snow Dogs," "Judgment Night," "Radio," "Rat Race," "A Murder of Crows," etc. This movie is one of my favorite movies of all time and it is good because it shows that there can be positive relationships between people of different races, even in times of adversity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! February 10, 2010
A Kid's Review
This movie must have had really bad promoters.
I never heard of it when it came out.
The only reason I watched it was on accident. I turned it on thinking it was the other Gladiator (R Crowe Ancient Greece movie).
I ended up liking this one better than the Gladiator I intended to watch.

All the actors were excellent, Cuba (of course), the main character did good but I've never seen him since, the bad guys really made you hate them & the girlfriend did well too for her short role.

The setting was perfect & fit well with the story, the music mixed well also & the story was great even though its kind of common.

This is definitely a movie worth buying. I watch it whenever I notice its on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fighter & fight fan February 1, 2009
When I first saw this movie, I though WOW! A kid & his family down on there luck, looking for a second chance. I think it is great to have a talent that you can fall back on like Tommy in the movie. From a fighter accept It was great that he did have a talent, & then Had to fight his way to freedom, that was great. Great american movie.
