Reigning light-heavyweight boxing champ Billy “The Great” Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal) seems to have it all – an impressive career, a loving wife (Rachel McAdams), an adorable daughter and a lavish lifestyle. When tragedy strikes and Billy’s lifelong manager (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) leaves him behind, Billy turns to retired fighter Tick Willis (Oscar winner Forest Whitaker). With Tick’s guidance, Billy sets out on a fight for redemption. Gyllenhaal delivers a transformational performance as the broken prize-fighter in this gritty drama from director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day).
