A Fighter's Blues (2000) A Fighter's Blues

A Fighter's Blues Directed by: Daniel Lee
Starring: Intira Jaroenpura, Andy Lau, Takako Tokiwa

Tagline: "Adrianne!! (Just kidding)"

Mung Bo (Andy Lau) is released from prison after 10 years. He used to be a boxing champion and had a relationship with a photojournalist named Pim whilst he was contesting a title in Thailand.

The first thing he decides to do when he gets out is to find Pim, but on arriving in Thailand he finds out that she was killed on assignment in the Golden Triangle and also that Pim had a daughter named Ploy that he never knew about.

This leads him back to an orphanage in Pattaya and all the usual problems you would expect with a family reunion.

Just when everything seems fine and dandy, Mung Bo's past resurfaces and he has to have one last fight that he doesn't know if he will survive.

It has been a while since I saw this movie, but it follows the same storyline of just about every boxing movie known to man. In this case the boxer's daughter stands in for the sweetheart, but there is not that much different. The kids in the orphanage are also annoying as they are so goody-goody.

It is better than watching another triad movie at least and I recommend it if you are a fan of boxing movies.

Rating: 7/10
