This is one of those reviews written by someone who didn't watch the whole thing because it seemed too stupid.

I disliked this documentary for the same reasons I don't like gangster films; I don't like watching somewhat stupid people talk and fight.

"...and after the fight they went to the bar and..." Really? Who would have guessed that these guys were alcoholics? Depressed, alienated, angry, frustrated, uneducated blue-collar guys with nothing to do but hold on to old battles.

I didn't watch the whole thing. I did get the feeling that they were fighting because they NEEDED to fight and would have been served as well by a Golden Gloves league without all the ancient drama attached. Or any convenient war.

If you drink too much and are looking for a reason to quit, this is probably a good thing to watch.
