| In Agreement With Mr. Dundee's Review
I think Mr. Dundee's review is spot on. The bare knuckle fight is extremely brutal. It's not one of these ultra-choreographed fights seen in the vast majority of movies that contain fighting. Part of this has to do with the superior makeup job and camera angles. Also, the man who plays Neeson's opponent is a real bare knuckle fighter. He was originally brought on as a consultant, and then it was decided that he should play the character.

However this is NOT an action movie. It is a drama, and a pretty good one. I can't think of anything else to add. Mr. Dundee summed up everything.

If anyone would like to know more detailed info about this fight scene, then I suggest you rent Ultimate Fights Volume 2.
