Release Date:August 25,2009
Small-town boy Shawn MacArthur (Channing Tatum) knows firsthand that every day in New York City is a struggle to survive. So when scam artist Harvey Boarden (Terrence Howard) gives him a chance to be something more in the brutal underground world of bare-knuckle street-fighting, Shawn decides that he has something worth fighting for and puts everything on the line to win. Every knockout brings him closer to the life he’s always wanted, but also traps him in a dangerous web he can’t escape.
It’s not about who you’re fighting, but what you’re fighting for. Writer and director Dito Montiel (A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints) brings the action in this gritty story of small town boy who becomes a street fighting star in New York City’s underground circuit. The film that Pete Hammond (Hollywood.com) calls “a total knockout” is now available to own with two versions on one disc, including the theatrical version plus the unrated cut with even more ferocious fighting! Starring Channing Tatum (Public Enemies, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Step Up), Academy Award® nominee Terrence Howard (Iron Man, Crash, Hustle & Flow), Zulay Henao (S. Darko) and Luis Guzman (War).
