Misbegotten drama that swings and misses
27 July 2019 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

A British boxing drama; A working-class Liverpudlian, prone to using her fists to settle disputes and wrongs against her family and friends, travels to New York to find her estranged father. Needing cash to rebuild her life, she joins the women's boxing circuit. This is a lumbering drama with a poor and blatant dialogue, particularly with all its fighting talk which doesn't sink deeply with its overly palpable delivery. Margi Clarke is at least striking for her efforts, packing a mean punch as a scrappy and devoted mother, but there is very little to engage with due to a story that doesn't grip, and performances that are weak. The fight sequences are choreographed well enough, but not impressive enough to be waiting around for.
