SEEN to End all Reanctments; remains a Classic, regardless of bad interpretations and mad takes on the Movie.

Overacted and stereotyping, but entertaining

Not that bad of a remake of the John Garfield classic. Some overacting, but entertaining enough. Nice cameo by Muhammad Ali and even Peter Lawford.

Too much body! Not enough soul!

I remember watching this movie years ago I am a 46 year old woman and back in the 80s, Jane Kennedy and Leon Kennedy were like icons to a lot of African American people. I didn't care for the movie then and I don't now. I see where they were trying to go with this story but as one of the commenters said, it lacked depth and credibility. I also admire the commenter who said he was white and sick of seeing us (leon as a boxer) being portrayed in this cartoonish kind of way. Again I agree. This movie was so laid on with naked women, it literally blinded the storyline and where they were trying to go with it. You saw Leon in bed more with his groupies than you did with him in the ring!!!. The nice gem to this movie was the young girl who played his sick sister. She did an excellent job, you can tell she was brewing to be a good actress. And Jane of course was pretty as always. But Leon and Jayne as actors.?.. I wish they would have tried again. However I weather watch this movie than any of the penitentiary's that Leon has been in! There were three of them!!! And to me that is three too many LOL. Again this is a touching story, I just wish they had of executed it better. However I still consider it as what they would call and old cult classic from these two who were very popular at that time.
