FIST FIGHT (2017) Review
Directed by Richie Keen
From the title and the trailer, you’re already sure of what to expect from the film, punching, violence and comedy. And yes, those three were visible in the film but were they enough for the film to be actually satisfying? The short answer is no.
Expectations for this kind of film is low, while it may deliver some crazy sequences from its crazy cast, Fist Fight just doesn’t have anything new to offer. But it does have some message it wants to discuss, the state of students today. Charlie Day is very much a delight in the film, he has a distinct way of acting that is perfect for the film, and it’s the best experience you could get from Fist Fight.
It is the cast that you want to see here. From Ice Cube, Charlie Day, Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell to Christina Hendricks, these are just crazy talented comedians that give all they have. It’s enjoyable at times but you’ll definitely feel there’s something missing.
