    Whatever happened to original ideas? I mean this one had ALL the clichés: angry war vet, underground fight, dishonest promoter, lost girlfriend...I mean, they had it right down to the mill at the end....not original in the leas

    a very good story line....and its believable. Another gritty performance by Harrelson.

    This was a dark movie. Telling probably the truth about drugs and vengence. I really can\'t decide if this was one of the best movies I\'ve seen or not.
