Storyline

Ray 'Harley' Davidson is a hustler. With flash clothes and a fast mouth, Harley lives life in the fast lane. With his passion for all things gambling, money runs like water through Harley's hands and as quickly as he makes a killing he takes a beating, normally at the poker table. Nominally an illegal prize-fight manager, Harley hasn't produced a live one in months, until Charles Buchinsky literally wanders into his life. Charles Buchinsky, street fighter extraordinaire. He's from out of town looking for a fight and the chance to tie up a few loose ends. Keeps himself to himself, lets his fists do the talking and his word is his bond. Victor Maitland, top illegal fight promoter and porn baron. Hates losing and loves the prestige of managing the best hitter in town. Harley dreams of bringing Maitland down and after seeing Buchinsky at work, engineers a fragile partnership. The duo soon becomes a hot ticket, Charles knocking out all-comers, Harley cleaning up the side-bets. Old habits ... Written by Joe Long

A very low budget poorly acted street fighting movie that is only for people who LOVE this genre. Pretty bad to me. I say C-
16 October 2011 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"I might be wrong, but I'm guessing you know something that I don't." A struggling fight promoter Ray 'Harley' Davidson (Fargas) is running out of money and respect in town. When he meets Charles Buchinsky (Alexander) he thinks he found his way back to the top. If you absolutely love UFC and street fighting you will like this. If you love watching street fighting you will like this. If you enjoy watching movies like that but aren't totally psyched about them then this may be a struggle to get through. I have seen worse, but I'm pretty sure the budget was around 100 bucks. The fighting was pretty fake, the acting was not good, but again, if you like movies like this that doesn't matter. This movie was made a few years ago, and like "Bending All The Rules" is only now coming out because an actor who is in it for five minutes (Tom Hardy in this one) is hot right now. Overall, a movie for people that love this kind of thing. If, like me, you think a few are OK then I would look for something else. I give it a C-.

Would I watch again? - No, I almost didn't make it through once.
