More of a kids show in my opinion, my teenage son likes it. I like that the Janitor has integrity, he doesn't tell the kid to lie and he doesn't blame him for losing his job. Family friendly.

This was a solid all around movie. I'd recommend showing it to kids in the 14-17 range, but I think its message can apply to all age groups. The acting is good, and although there might not be lots of intense action scenes, it is entertaining and worth the price. I didn't find any references to the Christian faith in this movie, and God's name was abused once, so I can't give it full marks; but I enjoyed it.

The Texas Rattle Snake is in a family friendly movie? Yup, Stone Cold Steve Austin is a costar in the movie: Knockout. Though I liked watching Steve Austin in the WWE when younger, I of course didnâ€™t watch this movie simply for that reason. I mean if he were like his wrestling character in the story then this wouldnâ€™t have been a family friendly film lol. From what the description said, this was going to be a family friendly movie about what it means to be a real champion and I like that plot premise a lot!
Knockout is about a boy who move from private school to public school. Matt loves boxing, partially because his grandfather was a boxer, though he has never boxed before. While adjusting to public school life Matt makes some new friends, but also makes an enemy out of popular kid/boxing champion Hector Torrez. Hector humiliates and bullies Matt Miller, even gets the boxing coach to not allow Matt to be apart of the boxing team. However the schoolâ€™s janitor Dan Barnes, being a former boxer himself, decides to train Matt Miller in ways which are more than just mere boxing techniques. Heâ€™ll need all the help he can get especially due to the scheduled boxing match of him going up against Hector Torrez.
Knockout was very good. I often wonder when I watch movies like this and others I have reviewed in the past on my blog: â€œwhy arenâ€™t movies like this popular instead of some of the mainstream garbage..?â€ But getting back to the movie review, the storyline was well written and very realistic. The acting was very good for the most part and I think it was neat to see Matt Miller actually losing weight and getting into shape in the movie. I also liked what they talked about in regard to being a real champion, it was addressed in a way that doesnâ€™t sound cheesy or lame or unrealistic at all. And finally, at times this movie was actually pretty funny. We live in a world where there are more kids becoming like Hector Torrez, and I hope movies like this urge kids away from thatâ€¦
