Halle Berry directs herself, Sheila Atim and Adan Canto in this MMA comeback story where an alcoholic, former UFC star begins to retrain for the ring after her estranged young son is plonked back into her chaotic life.
Swings for grit, connects with cliche. Miserable, overlong and with few surprises… yet Berry has an eye for casting. She garners memorable performances from pretty much everyone… with Shelia Atim, Shamier Anderson and Adriane Lenox excelling. Shame all around it is so dour and trite.
