Format: DVD
Apollo, personified as Channing Tatum, appears as a street hawker in Manhattan but the other hawkers defend their pitch. A fist fight ensues. Apollo is victorious and his victory is noticed by a street hustler. Later The Hustler promises Apollo a better way to make a living through the unregulated fight scene. Promises are made. A series of arranged fights follow. At first Apollo loses or does not get paid. The promises continue.

Apollo has a secret. He is from The South, which he left in disgrace after fighting physically and mentally with his father. His father is a wrestling coach and had favoured another young wrestler over his son and this other wrestler became Apollo's nemesis.

Apollo begins to win his fights and both Apollo and The Hustler get money. There are fights in the urban decay of the South Bronx, fights in up-scale apartments overlooking the park, fights in fancy Chinese brothels. For all their success, The Hustler gains no respect from the fight organisers. They consider The Hustler a loser. But he is a hustler with a heart of gold. Then Apollo finds The Girl. He is persistent. She is not interested. He persists. And the persistence begins to pay off.

Apollo's former nemesis appears. The Nemesis is now a successful fighter on the same scene. He scorns and taunts Apollo. A grudge fight is arranged. The Nemesis is expected to win. In a fancy apartment Apollo and The Nemesis engage in a violent pankration. Apollo wins.

Unknown to The Hustler, Apollo has placed a bet on himself to win. And he wins big time. Apollo gives the money to The Hustler. He is no longer a loser. Apollo and The Girl and The Hustler leave New York, Apollo to reconcile with his father, The Girl to be with Apollo and The Hustler to enjoy his new-found self-respect.

Can't quite figure out why I like this film. I resisted watching it for ages due to the title. But when I did finally watch it I was surprised how little of the film is actually about the actual fighting. And it's not a tournament movie either. Instead you are given a drama about people struggling to make a living, friendships and relationships, and the fighting is just a small part of it. It's not pretty either. These are not spectacular fights. They are back alley punch ups. You won't come away wanting to perfect the crane kick, because there is no crane kick or equivalent. It's a surprising film in its ordinariness, and that's its true strength. Give it a watch.

Girls, don`t be fooled by the cover, this is a typical Channing Tatum film!! It`s a must for your collection. If you like Dear John, and 21 Jump Street then this is for you. Not much action in this, and more romance and friendship.

I enjoyed the action scenes in this movie, however the storyline sucked and the acting was a bit flat. Wouldn't reccomend it if your looking for excitement however Channing Tatum looks very nice in this haha.

If you too like all things poor like for example 'unrivaled' and rocky type films where an underdog wins despite being a bit poor then this film is for you...
How the hell can you give this film 5 stars or even a 4?! The box artwork and story gumph was very promising but all we re left with is a soooo slow story about a person who just fights.. for no apparent reason.. its just poor. The fights,again are ok and can be entertaining for all of a minute or so.. and likewise like the 'unrivaled' film its bettered by 'blood and bone'

I bought this for one purpose, which was to watch the fight scenes. The posters and trailers were promising: Young, fit, strong, not-bad-looking guy (Channing Tatum) on the front cover, who looks like he can fight, what's not to like?

Terrance Howard was great, and so was that old grandmother, but that is about it.

The fight choreography had potential but the camera work made little of what could have been quite good, especially in the middle fight against the Dragon Le (Cung Le). However, much of the technical aspects have been left out, and we're left with a flurry of shaky screens which was presumably exciting to some people.

The film is overly long drawn out and the soppy romance sequences gave me the time to type my opinions of this film on its Facebook page.

Not as bad as "Beyond The Ring", followed by "Never Back Down", which is really a modern spin on "Gladiator" (1992, Cuba Gooding Jr), which I think is a MUCH better film by far.
