OUR RATING: ★★★½
Drama directed and co-written by Max Winkler. The story follows brothers Stanley (Charlie Hunnam) and Lion (Jack O’Connell), who are struggling to stay relevant in the underground world of bare-knuckle boxing. When Stanley fails to pay back a crime boss, Pepper (Jonathon Majors), they’re forced to deliver an unexpected traveler as they journey across the country for a high-stakes fighting tournament. While Stanley trains Lion for the fight of his life, a series of events threaten to tear the brothers apart, but their love for one another, and belief in a better life, keep them going.

Stanley: We’re going to be good, Lion.
Lion: Yeah. I know, man.
Stanley: I mean, I can see it. I can see our future when I close my eyes. We got it all laid out in front of us. I can see our house. We each got a walk-in closet for all our silk shirts, and handmade Italian suits. You know where it is?
Lion: In California. Stan, if I don’t go to sleep, I’m not going to win tomorrow.
Stanley: We’re not going to lose. It’s fate.
Stanley: Something wonderful’s happening tonight, ladies. I can feel it! Beast from the northeast right there. Lion Kaminsky in the fight of the century. That right, bro?
Clem: Would you shut up and go back to work?
Clem: Kaminsky, you’re a f***ing weasel, man.
Stanley: Why you got to be like that, Clem? See, this is your problem. That’s why you’re going to be here for the rest of your life. Making tea towels and s**t. While me and Lion, we’re going to be over in California. Right, bro? Building the Lion brand. Making tracksuits, sweatshirts, getting s**ked off by movie stars.
Clem: Well, who’s going to suck you off with them f***ed-up shoes?
Stanley: I mean, a win tonight will open up a lot of doors for us. We could change our lives tonight.
Stanley: Come on, give me a little roar. Let me hear you roar.
Lion: No, man. I’m trying to focus.
Stanley: Give me a little roar, Lion. What, are you f***ing embarrassed in front of the dishwashers?
Stanley: You were supposed to win, Lion.
Lion: You shouldn’t have lied to me, Stan. You told me you wasn’t going to deal with that scumbag no more.
Stanley: Yeah, well, we needed the money.
Lion: Stanley, where the hell are we going to go, man?
Stanley: You know, for a guy who hates moving as much as you do, you really don’t do much to help the cause. You were supposed to f***ing win!
Pepper: [to Stanley] You owe me money you don’t have. I could kill you tonight, but I’d never get a return on my investment. So, I’m offering you an opportunity. Jungleland. Battle Royale for a hundred K. Wild-a**, no-holds-barred, bare-knuckle event. A week from today. I can get you on the card. I could do that.
Stanley: Let’s not look a gift horse in the mouth here. I mean, this is…
Lion: No, I’m asking him why. Nothing for nothing with you. Right, Pep?
Pepper: I saw you. I saw the way you moved before you took that dive. That look in your eye. That rage.
Pepper: Sky, meet Stan Kaminsky. Him and his brother, Lion, they’ll take you out west.
Stanley: Come on, Pepper. I can’t be moving girls right now.
Pepper: No, it ain’t like that.
Stanley: I don’t know.
Pepper: I’d handle it, or have one of my guys handle it. But, look, she’s a friend of the family.
Pepper: Take her to this address by this time next week, and Lion stays on the card.
Stanley: [reads from the card] “Party Animals?”
Pepper: Don’t f*** it up. Opportunities like this don’t knock twice.
Pepper: We’re in an economic boom, Kaminsky. Go forth, prosper.
Stanley: That’s quite an appetite you got on you. You ever take a break to talk?
Sky: What’s with the rat tail?
Lion: I had it since like forever. I’m thinking of cutting it.
Stanley: No, you’re not.
Sky: You should.
Stanley: That’s his lion’s tail. This gives him power. Look at him. He’s like a wild animal.
Stanley: Just last question. Are you like a…
Sky: Am I what?
Stanley: I mean, you know. A pro.
Lion: Stan. Come on.
Stanley: I just meant because of the circumstances.
Sky: I’m not a hooker. It’s nice to know I make a good first impression though.
Stanley: We’ve been working towards something. Something very big, alright? I mean, these are spectacular goals we’re talking about. And since we got to spend the next week together, I just need there to be a level of trust between us, that’s all.
Sky: I got to use the bathroom.
Sky: I’m sorry. Is that in violation of your spectacular goals?
[as they enter their hotel room]
Lion: There’s a hot tub.
Sky: And only one bed.
Stanley: [imitates radio static] Requesting backup. We got a hot tub situation over at the Venus de Milo. Going to need twelve Coors Lights and three Mountain Dews, stat.
Darlene: I like your pants.
Stanley: Yeah? Thank you. They’re from Italy. I like the way they make my d**k look.
Sky: If I went to college, I wouldn’t waste my time playing stupid games like these rich pricks.
Lion: Yeah, me neither.
Sky: I bet you’d be too busy getting it on with all the girls, huh?
Lion: No, I mean I’d be taking my classes real seriously because of how expensive it is.
Lion: You like to sew, right? I saw what you did at the hotel with the robe. And your name? It looked good like professional.
Sky: Thank you.
Lion: Me and Stan want to get our initials stitched onto some dress shirts. So, if we make a bit of money, hopefully we can afford your talents.
Sky: You got parents, or does Stanley cover that too?
Lion: Our mom died when I was real young.
Sky: What about your dad?
Lion: Well, he didn’t want us, so.
Sky: That must’ve been lonely, you know, not having any parents.
Lion: Well, I always had my brother.
Sky: You got any scars?
Lion: I got some. All on my hands though. Not on my face.
Sky: Can I touch it?
Lion: If you want. Go ahead. Just do it.
[he winces jokingly as she goes to touch his hand]
Sky: You don’t seem like a boxer to me.
Lion: What do you mean?
Sky: I don’t know. You haven’t got that thing.
Lion: What thing? This thing?
[he poses like a boxer]
Lion: I don’t walk around going like this to people? “What the f*** are you looking at, huh? I’m a f***ing ogre.”
Sky: It’s a compliment.
Lion: I’ll take the compliment. Maybe that’s my advantage.
Sky: People underestimate you.
Lion: I guess.
Sky: Me too.
[to the guy at the bar Lion almost gets into a fight with over Sky]
Stanley: Guys like us don’t have the luxury of settling things with credit cards. We got to go outside, you know? Mm-hmm. Toe to toe. On the street. But that’s not what you do, is it? Because you don’t know what it’s like to suffer. I mean, do you know what it’s like to be in pain? I’ve been to f***ing prison, man.
Stanley: You f***ing set me up, Pepper!
Pepper: Listen, m*therf***er. I don’t owe you s**t. Alright? Of course I set you up. Yates? You know, Yates thinks you found Sky. He thinks you’re responsible. You know, you owe me a debt. Why the f*** am I going to look out for you? Hm? You look out for your brother. This is how it works. You said you wanted to go to Jungleland.
Sky: [to Lion] You have to let me get away from Yates. I made a deal, and I can’t get out of it. I f***ed up, really bad. And he is bad. He is a bad man in his heart.
Stanley: I feel for this girl. I really do. But she f***ing drugged you, man.
Sky: It was just a Xanax.
Stanley: Saturday night, we take what’s ours. The f***ing alternative is that he kills us. Do you hear what I’m saying? Do you trust me?
Lion: How are you?
Sky: Like you give a s**t.
Lion: I’m trying to be civil. I wish I could help you.
Sky: But Stanley makes every decision for you.
Lion: Well, you lied to me, you drugged me, and you smashed our car, so.
Sky: Doesn’t mean I don’t like you.
[at Sky’s parents house]
Stepfather McGinty: Boys, how do you know Mary?
Stanley: We met at church. At a church group.
Mother McGinty: That must have been a recent development.
