The nicest thing to say about Fighting
is that I didn't hate it. It seemed like a bad Jean-Claude Van Damme movie with grittier cinematography. Actually, Van Damme's early work Lionheart
has almost the exact same plot, characters and outcome. It even has better fight scenes. Fighting
is about a young man (Channing Tatum) who is discovered by a scam artist (Terrence Howard) deep into the underworld of bare-knuckle fighting. The con-man believes he can score thousands from the kid after seeing him take down a punk who was trying to steal from him. The acting is less than average, very flat on Tatum's end, and the editing during the fight scene is too shaky to make anything out. This film needs a rewrite and a better director and cast.
