FLick Affairs


“A boxer fights his way to the top, only to find his life falling apart around him.“ Admittedly, this IMDB synopsis doesn't sound too intriguing, as it promises more of the same of what we've all seen a hundred times before.

But then again: with director Antoine Fuqua on board and Jake Gyllenhaal flexing his restored muscles after his impressive weight loss for “Nightcrawler“, things might still look a bit generic but at least you know that you're in very capable hands. Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams and 50 Cent co-star.
