  • 1 star "It's really sad that they keep making boxing movies. Pathetic idiots who have no other skills (in other words, an extremely low IQ) beat each other to a pulp while other people cheer. It's sick. If you think this is entertainment, please seek the help you need to make this world a better place, instead of glorifying violence."
