Default Has anyone seen the Sonny Liston movie 'Phantom Punch'?

What a horrible, horrible film, I watched it last night and my god was it sub par, it told nothing of Sonny Liston or anything, looked like it was film on a budget of $11, storyline was beyond rushed and didn't go in depth at all, fight scenes were incredibly poor.

I'd give it a 2/10.

Liston tried to take Ali's head off with some of the punches he threw in the first fight.

Sad to hear that the film is terrible. I don't know how they could fail with it, Liston has such a great story to tell.
