Most underrated film ever?
on 23 September 2004
Anyone who hasn't seen this film is seriously missing out. James Woods plays the consumate conman who sets up a boxing sting involving Louis Gosset Jr as the boxer, and Oliver Platt as their accomplice. Bruce Dern plays the redneck baddie perfectly. Heather Graham also offers token support.
This film oozes coolness, a great script, and breathtaking boxing sequences. This knocks the spots off 99% of films coming out at the moment and the fact that it has taken 12 years to come out on DVD is a disgrace! However, the good news is that now everyone can enjoy what is essentially a boys film, but truly one of the great underrated films of all time. Watch out for the killer ending....
