Critics reviews

The context (a sports epic mixed with a soldier’s role in Iraq) and the discourse (the power of family reconciliation to resolve differences) never end up obstructing the film; it can arouse an enthusiasm for boxing even among those disinclined to do so. Whether through the physicality of the fights or the excellent character development, the initially timid response of the Sitges crowd progressively turned into a shouting ovation.
