Also since the con involves boxing, there`s no place for finesse here, and ultimately the execution is quite fittingly brutal. Read more about the condition New: An item that is still in its original shrink wrap from the manufacturer and the original manufacturer’s seal (if applicable) has not been removed. Part boxing flick (think Rocky) and part con thriller (think Oceans Eleven) the movie takes twists and turns where you’re never quite sure who will come out on top.

Luckily the movie never fully explores this as a romantic sub plot and we’re left with just slightly creepy flirting that doesn’t blossom into anything else thankfully!The film is decidedly low budget and simply made, but benefits from a good script and a stellar cast. A loan shark backs Caine's bet, with the understanding that his health and welfare will be riding on the outcome. It's far from a sure thing, though, since Gabe's fighter is "Honey" Roy Palmer (Gossett), a cranky, over-the-hill 48-year-old who has just come out of retirement.

They are cut short by Gillon, who notes that his son never entered the ring -– therefore, only nine fights have transpired. His softer side only comes out when he’s trying to protect his son (Jim Caviezel) but even then his actions only help to showcase his flaws.

Diggstown (known as Midnight Sting in the UK and Ireland), is a 1992 American sports comedy-drama film directed by Michael Ritchie and written by Steven McKay, based on the 1978 novel The Diggstown Ringers by Leonard Wise. As the fights begin and the double crosses begin to spiral out of control, Palmer must reach inside himself to recapture the glory of his youth and ensure victory for Caine.

A not so well known gem of a film, which I saw at the cinema at the time, and ought to be in the collection of anyone who likes con-artist/sport/semi-comedy-semi serious type fare.James Woods is expertly cast as Gabriel and his ease at playing a hustler is entertaining throughout. He truly embodies a nasty greedy man who feeds off power and corruption and will stop at nothing to win.
