This movie is technique over story. Well done, bit about nothing.
I waited months for this relase and it was everything I hoped it would be. Incredibly raw with it being in a real Thai prison. I have also loved joe cole and his preformance was really convincing, all the different emotions of drug abuse, addiction, prison, prison in a foreign country and boxing for your life. Something that will get you feeling as you watch. Definitely love.
The movie does not reflect the True Story as written on the book. The movie was different from the book. The character was real but the story was not. The only thing similar is a british boxer in a Thai prison. The story was all made up in the movie but not based on the book.
It was soo goood ! Something masterpiece, who liked the movie should read the book too !
Great movie but for the pro or amateur fighters this is not the movie for you
The movie tries to be intersting by develpoing a multi dimensional picture of what's sure to be an interesting character. Ultimately, the various story threads that are opened never materialize into anything. All we left with is predictable fight scenes and tired prison bravado cliches.
Saw it originally in cinemas where it doesn't have subtitles puroposly to really give your constant stress and confusion the Cole feels. SO annoyed that the streamed version added the subtitles, makes it a completely different film
A lot of subtitles, a lot of scenes of practicing boxing. A few boxing matches. As a true story it would be horrifying to live through. But I don’t think it does it justice.
