Phantom Punch

 

USA 2008, 105 minutes
Dir. Robert Townsend
Genres: Drama / History

Topics: Sport.

 

Aroview: Adding to the growing canon of boxer biopics, this takes a bull-headed look at the great Sonny Liston's story of prison-rags-to-reform in the ring to unsolved death.

Ving Rhames steps up to play Liston, somehow managing to fit his appropriately massive bulk into one wooden dimension. Never fear, though, as this film pulls no punches and packs in the facts, although it must be said, not all will be floored.
