Perhaps hardcore fight geeks would find fault here but the this is masterful movie making. I saw it for the first time just this year and it holds up very well against modern movie craft. A great story and an engaging cast are made even better by great directing. Don't expect Hollywood action from start to finish and you will enjoy this film. It's a drama with action, not the other way around. A must see film for movie fans of any genre.
