      Brian Costello Common Sense Media Feel-good boxing tale, but frequent bullying and taunting. Rated: 3/5 Jan 24, 2013 Full Review Brian Orndorf Lacks a great deal of innovation, but it retains an impressive reservoir of charisma to help squeak it through the rough patches, making for an atypically pleasant picture from star Steve Austin. Rated: B- May 1, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      wh Mediocre at best. Steve Austin actually does a great job in his role - very likable. The downfall is the main character Mathew. A combination of bad acting and very bad writing inadvertently makes the protagonist come across as a self-absorbed jerk himself. "Grandpa" shows up at the end magically - awkward…. Sloppy writing and/or editing. The rest of the actors do OK. At the penultimate point where the "knockout" punch is delivered, there is a slight "bionic man" sound effect - suggesting the director is either a dullard, or knew exactly how bad this was and just gave up. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/12/22 Full Review Audience Member It bores me that's something the film does but it's kinda of entertains me. Grade B- Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Meaningful, if not predictable. It relies on stereotypes to set the scene in the first 20 minutes, and never gets past 'teenage boy' in its audience appeal. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Could be a good film if the acting was better Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A.K.A. Born to fight. Karate kid rehash with boxing the sport in question this time as a young bullied boy is taught how to defend himself Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member I actually really liked this. for its pg rating Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
