This movie looks like 'Step up', 'Step up 2: The Streets', and 'Bring it On' but instead of dancing there will be fighting. 'Fighting' is your everyday run of the mill formula movie that will mostly appeal to teenagers. I personally think the movie looks awful. It stars Channing Tatum and Terrence Howard. I would think Howard has got better things to do with his time than make a movie like this, but I guess not. As for Tatum, I think maybe he was born for this role, because I sure as hell don't see him playing a decent Duke in the G.I. JOE movie. "Were in a $100,000 Mercedes thats where were going." is the type of dialogue we are going get to hear. I think this movie looks worse than 'Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li'.

Small-town boy Shawn MacArthur (Channing Tatum) has come to New York City with nothing. Barely earning a living selling counterfeit goods on the streets, his luck changes when scam artist Harvey Boarden (Terrence Howard) sees that he has a natural talent for streetfighting. When Harvey offers Shawn help at making the real cash, the two form an uneasy partnership.

As Shawn's manager, Harvey introduces him to the corrupt bare-knuckle circuit, where rich men bet on disposable pawns. Almost overnight, he becomes a star brawler, taking down professional boxers, mixed martial arts champs and ultimate fighters in a series of staggeringly intense bouts. But if Shawn ever hopes to escape the dark world in which he's found himself, he must now face the toughest fight of his life.
