Why one review had to have a problem with an actor's hairstyle? Is way beyond me, its the last thing on my list, regarding a very important movie that should not be missed.
It was not quite I expected but ended up with even a better one and a suprised story.
It has all the things in life, making mistake, forgiveness, love, ashame, redemption,reunion with the lover ext.
The story is about Josh Hartnett a journalist who is in trouble having separated with his wife, not writing good stories for his newspaper for awhile.
He had a chance one day by meeting this guy on the street(Samuel L. Jackson) . It seems that he was a forgottened ex- champion who is now living on the street.
By the time when he first meet this guy, he was seriously bitten up by a bunch of guys.
He decided to write a story about that ex-champ.
When he saw the TV fighting resource, he even confirmed that the champ has a scar on his chest which this guy on the street has exactly the same one too.
Then he wrote the story which happens to be a huge success. He even appears on TV.
But then again, he found out that he made a huge mistake.
The guy on the street was not the champ. He was the other guy on the fight with the champ who was knocked out at the second round.
By that time, the champ's son and the trainer came and tell the reporter Josh Hartnett that they will sue him.
Now he is in a big touble not only because he will be sued but because he was seriously damaged his career.
Even when he appeared in his son's lectue, all of his friends laughed at him.
But he's got a second chance by the champ's son and his family. They asked him to write another article.
By that time the fake champ one day was drunk and again was about to punched by this guy again. But this time he had this fighting instinct back and beat him back.Read more ›
The fortunate viewer is treated instead to a story about the complexity and relativity of success and failure, contrasting an admixture of various failures and successes and the complete lack of a nexus between material reward for true success, and the punishment of destitution for true failure. The movie graphically shows the difficulty, and often, injustice, of applying such absolute final judgments as "success" and "failure" to an entire life, and how success/failure are in constant flux along the failure/success spectrum, not fixed finalities.
This is Samuel L. Jackson's best performance.Read more ›

This a good low budget movie, but Mr. Jackson makes it a nice movie to watch.Published 3 months ago by Mr. Big
I felt this movie deserved at least 3 stars - the acting was good
but this movie will never become a classic!!
I enjoyed this movie that dealt with some difficult journalistic issues and handled them deftly. I always enjoy Alan Alda in any role as well!Published on October 25, 2012 by Amazon Customer
