(it) wrote: I mean, you got drama with a hint of mystery; you got sport emotions and suspense, you got genuine character development (fair play for young actors here), way above decent cast and that feel-good touch after leaving the theater...but that's just my personal take, as an active combat sports contester I must say that this side of the movie gives you pretty good inside on how it looks like through the eyes of an athlete. It's not another "bullied kid finds his master and kicks ass" movie, it is way beyond that, best to see it for yourself, you can easily take your gf with you and she will love it as well.To wrap it all up - great movie, great cast, great feeling after - why would you give that a miss?

(nl) wrote: A haunting documentary that focuses on the struggle of one man to do what was good and proper in the midst of evil and worldwide apathy. It is certainly exhausting and frustrating, but it is also reassuring to know that there are still people in the world who do the best they can, even if they only meet limited success.

This film is not bad and it is self- explanable except that it's a little too serious for me to enjoy watching it again! It is more of a DRAMA WESTERN film than it is a MYSTERY, or the STRANGE or even ACTION for that matter! This film is doesn't even come close to thinking Western films such as "The Searchers" or "Ride Lonesome"! 2 out of 4

(ca) wrote: Had high hopes for this, to be honest I'll watch anything with James McAvoy in it, but this looked very good on paper. Unfortunately despite another great performance from McAvoy I found this pretty disappointing. Which is a massive shame as the chemistry between McAvoy and Strong is fantastic, they're quite electric together on screen. It could have been something special were it not for the formulaic plot, the terrible ending and the equally terrible acting from Morrissey!
