Movie Reviews

Bare-knuckled ROCKY
R. Hall | Catonsville, Maryland United States | 01/09/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I knew Liam could act but boy can he fight (he actually did fight in his pre-acting days--that's where he got the broken nose). This movie is about a mobster who hears about the 'Big Man', Danny Schuler (Neeson) who has a reputation for being a fierce competitor. Danny is a redundant Scottish mine worker who accepts the money for fighting bare-knuckled for the mobster. If you have never seen a bare-knuckle fight, it is much more brutal than one fought with gloves. Be prepared to see lots of blood! After the big fight, Danny finally makes some good choices--I especially like the scene when Schuler visits his opponent in the hospital and does the 'right thing'. Liam Neeson is a born actor and this movie shows how good he was even early in his career. Try it!"
The Big Mang

(3 out of 5 stars)

"This was a good movie starring Liam Neeson, and Val Kilmer's wife who also starred in Willo as Sorcia. Sorry, don't remember her name.
Neeson is an out of work miner in Scotland who cannot get another job due to his criminal/political record. His so-called "friend" introduces him to a business "gentleman" and they convince him to participate in an illegal bare-knuckle fight for money. Neeson believes the money is worth it when he gets an advance on his pay but his wife doesn't trust where the money came from and takes the kids to her parent's house leaving Neeson in the care of his so-called friend and the business "gentleman".
What you shall witness must be the bloodiest, brutal fight ever shown in a movie due to the superb makeup job and camera angles. There's nothing flashy or glorious about this fight. The sound effects and everything looks very real. Hell, I even started to feel nervous for Neeson as he's walking down the corridor to the fight due to the music. You may even feel sorry for the dirty Cutty (Neeson's opponent) once you see the damage he sustains, as they both take an enormous amount of punishment from eachother. If you'd just like to see what the fight is like, you can see it on the "Ultimate Fight DVD" which should be at your local Blockbuster, but I suggest you just buy this movie instead.
There was an ulterior motive for the fight taking place, not just money either so find out the true reason and if Neeson gets his wife and kids back. Give the movie a try"
