Shawn MacArthur, the kind-hearted son of an Alabama wrestling coach, makes a grim living selling fake products on the streets of New York City. After dealing with thieving punks, he's discovered by bare-knuckle / street-fight manager Harvey Boarden. Shawn soon proves himself worthy and starts earning a small fortune, part of which he volunteers to spend on single mother Zulay Velez. Shawn doesn't cheat and that seems to be a major problem, notably after the arrival of his Alabama high-school rival.
One of the best in it's category, ever released. I will grant that my expectations were very low before seeing it... I was so mind destroyed that I ended up watching it three times whole movie online in the web, almost without breaks. It wasn't easy to leave the cinema, when I saw it first time. Rich dialogues, which are the essence of this film, arouse respect, especially in the context of today's production. Modern classic, two words which describe this movie. I decided not to load the Fighting file here.
