REVIEW: A FIGHTING MAN
Oscar® nominee James Caan (Best Supporting Actor, The Godfather, 1973), Oscar® winner Louis Gossett Jr. (Best Supporting Actor, An Officer and a Gentleman, 1983) and action-fan favorite Dominic Purcell (TV’s “Prison Break”) headline the powerful boxing drama A FIGHTING MAN, available on DVD and Digital June 17 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Famke Janssen (Taken 1 & 2) and Michael Ironside (X-Men: First Class) join these Hollywood heavyweights onscreen for the intense and inspiring tale of two men who meet head-to-head in the ring for a fight that will change their lives forever: one fighting for redemption; the other fighting for hope.
SYNOPSIS: Haunted by a tragic past, undefeated washed up boxer Sailor O’Connor (Dominic Purcell) is a broken man. When a fluke opportunity arises to step back in the ring, he takes it. His opponent is younger and faster, but with the support of his old fight team (Michael Ironside and James Caan), Sailor pushes for this one last fight. Not knowing when to throw in the towel, Sailor must face his personal demons or die trying to stay on his feet throughout a bloody, brutal beating in the ring. Also starring Louis Gossett Jr., Kim Coats with Famke Janssen and a special appearance by Freddie Roach.
