Really bad
Verified purchase
This is a film that doesn't know what it wants to be. It sets itself up as a man-battling-memories-of-his-uncaring-abandoning-father story. I'd have liked to have seen that movie. That set-up was interesting. But that's not what you get. Instead, the heavy-handed script changes from the simple story introduced in the opening, to the protagonist's role in creating a tragedy involving his trainer (unrelated to the father story), to a prison-survival film; and it continues to change from there. New characters are introduced regularly throughout, diluting what might have been a nice focus on a few central characters. The filmmakers lack discipline and focus. Combine that with some basic filmmaking errors (they break the "180-rule" about six times in a row at one point, confusing the viewer; they diverge after 20 minutes from what had been entirely the protagonist's perspective for one short scene involving a young girl, somewhat startlingly; even the style changes distractingly, as when the shooting suddenly shifts from static shots to a meandering camera for one scene, out of no where - almost as if the directors just wanted to experiment). I'm sorry to say, I began grimacing at the film more than being involved in it. Can't recommend.

REFUND PLEASE

I'm not going to say this was the worst movie or most amateur demonstration of acting I've ever seen. . . . on second thought: YES, I am going to say it is the worst movie and poorest display of acting, ever. I got totally "sucker" punched by the BS reviews. Don't be fooled; this movie is really, poorly done. After viewing it, I felt like forming a support group for Amazon rip-off victims.

B-MOVIE MORALITY TALE SETTLED WITH 2 FISTS
Verified purchase
OUR protagonist has a hard knock life. Cuffed around by his Dad. Mom & Dad look like addicts. Dad drops his son at a tender age at the steps of state care. Our hero learns to settle arguments with his fists. He has a story book life taking the boxing title and all the riches that come with it. BUT A SNAKE SLITHERS IN THIS GARDEN OF EDEN. Our heroes 'friend from foster who is now his sparring partner manages to mind -game our hero and gets him to take a manslaughter rap for an unfortunate OD of a young girl. Our hero does his time and comes out humble. He cleans up the spit bucket at an old school gym and eventually works his way into a shot at the title. The title shot is against his old buddy who betrayed him and played the PUGILISTIC JUDAS. Not going to do a spoiler on the outcome... but have a tissue handy. Yeah there are critics on this thread... actors are no Olivier, director no Scorsese; but, i say the actors performances are vibrant, the story compelling, the morality tale almost believable, the redemption thrilling. I enjoyed this B-FLICK morality tale settled with 2 fists; a lot. True not perfect. Cutting sometimes uneven...gotta use the mind to fill in the gaps... but a refreshing take on an old story.

Wonderful story, this team is on its way to create spectacular movies. Considering knowing a little about the background of film production, I rated this one a five-star because of its concept. I know this is just the beginning of many to come. Story line is awesome, and with movie budgets you cannot always get the details across to the audience in such a short time. However, this cast and crew did a wonderful job capturing it.
I am by far a Korrina Rico fan now! As for Travis (Lee), love the idea of kids that grow up without a father who take responsibility and end up successful by not giving up or giving in. You will encounter many challenges, life is not fair, and hard work will always payoff! Travis showed this and just that alone was worth my purchase. Call me biased but I cannot wait to see what this group comes up with next.

Thoroughly enjoyed

I have seen some, but not all the classic boxing movies. The Fighter, Raging Bull, Million Dollar Baby, Rocky 1, Southpaw, The Hurricane, Ali, Girlfight. I have even watched the heartbreaking doc Assault in the Ring. Glassjaw was an exciting addition to one of the most beloved movie genres of Hollywood. This was a fresh take on the story of the mental and emotional stakes that a champion boxer endures. With ethnically diverse leads, well choreographed fights, stunning camerawork, it was truly a movie that deserved it's theatrical release and I only wish I saw it on a big screen to really appreciate the cinematography and feels. Korrina Rico has star power, always loved her work. The movie has grit, it has heart, and it being an original screenplay I thought it was very entertaining and will be a memorable part of boxing cinema.

Boosie is barely in here!! However decent movie
Verified purchase
So, I first found out about this movie Bc I follow Boosie on IG. So I had to support him and watch this movie. It came to theatre on my city but wasn’t able to make it so I though I’d purchase it on here. Buy! Not rent! Except, I’m disappointed. Boosie is barely in here man. Not even a Boosie song. I guess maybe they couldn’t afford to buy one his songs. Geesshhh. That sure was a disappointment. On the other hand, good story line even though it was very predictable for my sons dad. The acting could of been better. I love that uncle RICO is in here from Napoleon Dynamite. Overall I would recommend it. Boosie probably has the least acting skills out of everyone but did the best. Well, after uncle rico. But then again Boosie was only playing a role he does in real life; being a hustler . If he wasn’t in here I probably would of never even watched

Movie description is off a bit
Verified purchase
A one-time champion boxer cannot control his anger and winds up going to prison; the "cannot control his anger" bit is the part that doesn't fit here. I won't spoil it for anyone interested in watching this movie but the main character's ability to control his anger has absolutely NOTHING to do with why he went to prison. I'm not a boxing fan or know all the much about the sport; or acting for that matter. But the acting in this movie was absolutely terrible. The only reason I give 3 stars is because the plot; if you can call it that and I'm being generous here, was just barely enough to keep my attention long enough to watch the whole thing

Everything below average
Verified purchase
I don't understand how this movie has 4 stars - unless they're not genuine and put on by friends of the actors/producers.

Acting is below average especially main characters. Storyline is very predictable and poorly told by having almost no time to get into it.

Basically, a waste of time.
