My girlfriend looked at me as the credits rolled, on the movie she chose, and said at least it was better than F9. I can't, won't and don't agree with her but she's not wrong.

I quite liked this. As if a typical mainstream Japanese boxing flick was written by Jim Jarmusch. The only thing that holds it back from true greatness for me is that it's a tad unnecessarily rapey and the man she's involved with (or wants to be) is a total douche that I didn't want her to have anything to do with.
