Critics reviews

As a boxing movie, this is every bit as grim as The Set-Up (1949) and Fat City(1972), and as an underlit look at a seedy American subculture, set mainly in a few lairlike locations, it’s as dark and doom ridden as the 1961 The Hustler (with which it paradoxically shares a ‘Scope format) and Eastwood’s own 1988 Bird.
