I watched HEART because of the interesting cast. Well, as good as the cast is, nothing can compensate for the dull and dreary script and direction.

The film wants to be serious and on a certain level it does achieve a realistic portrayal of a boxer's life but making a movie that's dreary and dull does not automatically equal greatness. Some directors, writers or producers seem to confuse greatness with dullness, which I'll never understand. And this slight film definitely suffers from this artistic affliction.

If you want to see where Steve Buscemi started or one of Brad Davis' last films, in which he, again, often appears in his underwear (see MIDNIGHT EXPRESS or QUERELLE), well you should check this out. But aside from the cast, I don't see any other reason to watch this.
