To be honest, wasn't sure I was going to like this movie. This was Channing Tatum right before he found success and the underdog story in the movie resounds soundly. He does a very good job, not only acting but in fighting as well. My only issue with this movie is ****WHOOPS, SPOILERS AHEAD**** the main or most important fight between Channing Tatum and his "enemy" seems a little outmatched. Played by Brian White, he outweighs Tatum by a good pound or two and, although not impossible, Tatum coming out on top seems a little far-fetched. But hey, what are movies for? Either way, I enjoyed it. Worth a look, I think. Side-note: I...love...Terrence...Howard...Seriously, he's amazing in just about anything he does.
