Excellent acting but gruelling - Journeyman review by CS

Spoiler Alert
15/11/2018

Paddy Considine is an excellent actor and director and this film about a boxer recovering from injury is further evidence of his qualities (alongside those of Jodie Whittikar amongst others). In the interview with Considine in the DVD extras he speaks of his love for boxing but this is also a fine grained analysis of its dangers and the level of realism is such that it is not an easy watch at times. The film is in many respects 'small scale' in focus - dealing with personal tragedy - but deals with big themes involving loss and reconciliation. I recommend it but would also say that you need to be in the right mood to watch it.

Knockout movie - Journeyman review by JR

Spoiler Alert
19/02/2019

Wow! what a great boxing movie. Not only is Paddy Considine arguably one of the best British actor's since Gary Oldman but he's turning into a formidable director as well. This is an emotional tearjerker of a film about the sometimes grim realities of boxing. Reminds me of the tragedies that happened to Michael Watson and Gerard Mclellan. Its a brilliant film and well worth watching.

A good watch - Journeyman review by BE

Difficult to watch at times given the subject matter but it is well crafted and has excellent and natural acting from the cast. The film portrays an injured boxer overcoming adversity with the help of friends and professionals.
