Co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal and his ripped torso, this is a technically competent but largely uninteresting boxing movie with the soapiest script this side of the daytime Emmys. Gyllenhaal plays Billy Hope, a brawler who wins matches with stamina and rage. Following a brutal personal tragedy, he's reduced to cleaning up at a local boxing gym run by a veteran trainer (Forest Whitaker). The film is best when they're on screen together, exchanging intenser-than-thou glares and tough-guy dialogue. But the story is as worn as an old pair of gym shoes.
