More nastiness from director Nicolas Winding Refn. It's painful to watch Ryan Gosling sleepwalk through this horrible mess. High camp: pure crap. No no no.
Great boxing film noir staring John Garfield. Innovative fight photography. Must see!
Robot boxing, Hugh Jackman: yes!
Great poster, mediocre movie. The mixed martial arts fight scenes are good. Love Nick Nolte, but the family turmoil feels manufactured, and I didn't fall in love with any of the characters.
HBO Boxing: great fight!
Sammo Hung got his meaty hands into this one and gives Donnie Yen a worthy opponent / partner in the continuing Chinese struggle for respect: this time it's against the "foreign devils" British occupiers and their western boxing style. Not as satisfying as the first Ip Man, but worth a viewing for the many thrilling fight scenes. Ip Man 2 contains more boxing than The Fighter!

More of a Bromance than a Boxing Film. There's only one brief fight in the first hour! Yes, the boxing is HBO quality, and the performances are great, but not enough boxing!
