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"! ;)
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!!!
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.
it reminds me like the Rocky movies but this was still a great movie to watch not to long not to short its
just about right over all the movie is great...
The story: an independent promoter of underground boxing (Chad Ortis) finds an unlikely charge in a woman capable of beating all male opponents (Neuenswander). As they rise through the ranks, the stakes are raised to dangerous levels...
The theory Chad Ortis' character operates under is "fight rigging in reverse:" he finds a fighter who nobody will bet on but who'll have no problem beating down the competition. This character is aptly cast in Rebecca Neuenswander, a real-life world champion in tae kwon and a competent actress who really looks like she could knock you on your butt. It's never sufficiently explored what makes her such a great fighter, but I'd still like to see both Neuenswander and this character in more movies. This, despite the fight content not being all that great. These are boxing matches, not martial arts or MMA fights, which kind of limits the choreography by default but the real killers here are a lack of back-and-forth action (most of the fights are quick and one-sided) and the age-old issue of claustrophobic camerawork.
The film is produced fairly well, with moody lighting and decent cinematography. It's also got a decent scope for a movie of its size, going from two cities to a country setting believably and without a hitch. Acting-wise, the film is also passable...for the most part.Read more ›
