Despite the unfortunate factor that it was a low budget made for tv type of movie feel...this movie delivers that lesson that never fails...the bully should never win.Enter a new student into a school Matthew Miller (Daniel Madger) that is trying to blend in with the other students, when he attempts to do so , He meets two loyal ones and two disrespectful ones that bully him with no mercy. Enter the guiding eye of Dan Barnes (Steve Austin) that used to be a pro boxer catching the sight of the new student being bullied from time to time...Dan becomes a tutor to Matthew until Matthew decides to get unauthorized consent for after class boxing lessons...so he can defend himself...from further being bullied. When he decides to enroll into a boxing class...he notices that his nemeses is also in the same class. This movie will take you on a journey to show you that you can achieve your goals if you don't give up. See this...it is true a good spirit of a movie!

This movie is literally a knockout. A strong and very inspirational movie with lots of punch and even more heart. It's The Karate Kid for a new generation. A rousing, heart-warming and truly wonderful film. A terrifically entertaining and exciting drama that has a compelling story and great characters with actors that suit them well. Finally a story about high school kids and bullying with actors who are actually the age and appearance of what average teens look like. Daniel Magder and Steve Austin are excellent, they give strong and great performances. This is Austin's best performance so far, showing he is more than an great action hero but a great actor.
