The story of a hustler looking to gain revenge on a top fightpromoter, ‘Sucker Punch’ sees lowlife loser Harley (Danny John Jules) form a fragile partnership with enigmatic fighter Buchinsky (Gordon Alexander) to topple fight baron Maitland (Ian Freeman) in thisfast-paced action comedy.
John Jules, most famous for his role as ‘Cat’ in ‘Red Dwarf’’ and a co-starring role in Hollywood hit ‘Blade 2’ felt that the film’s appeal lay in the fact that it was one hundred percent British without falling into the stereo-typical pigeon-holing of costume drama, rom-com or cockney gangster movie. ‘Sucker Punch’ follows the fortunes of John Jules’ down on his luck fight promoter whose life is changed by an enigmatic fighter, as he seeks revenge on the local hardman responsible for his father’s death. The film has been described as ‘Fight Club’ meets ‘Only Fools and Horses’ and features cameo roles from Antonio Fargas, Tom Hardy and Tamer Hassan.
With gritty, realistic fights throughout, ‘Sucker Punch’ is a film that superbly balances the
action and comedy elements.
