“Fighting” starring Channing Tatum as Shawn McArthur is about a young kid who hustles on the streets of New York to make a quick buck,and has a messed up past between him ,his father,and a old wrestling teammate named,Evan Hailey(Brian White). Channing’s character gets his merchandise and money stolen while hustling,but not without a fight which captures the eye of small time fight promoter, Harvey Boarden (Terrence Howard).

Harvey eventually catches back up with Shawn McArthur, and talks him into fighting his first fight for $5,000. He goes on to win which sets up a tentative business relationship between the two. Shawn fights some tough competitors in the movie,and interestingly enough finds a way to win against this one well trained Asian guy who apparently seemed way better than him at first which sort of got me riled up. But his toughest competitor is yet to come with his old wrestling teammate, Evan Haley Read more »

A whole bunch of Asian dudes take him to a private hospital, and take his heart out so they can transplant it into some old Asian guy. They give Chev a fake inferior artificial heart that runs on a four or five bar battery pack. Then when that goes out, it has a one hour internal backup battery. After that, it’s lights out for Chev. But I gotta tell you he makes the most out of this little fake heart because there’s another option. If he can somehow keep himself electrically charged then that heart won’t go out on him. this one fact sets the stage for a pretty exciting movie.

When someone from the inside leaked a workprint of the new “Wolverine : Origins” movie a couple of weeks ago, most movie review sites refused to watch it.
