Critic Reviews for American Fighter

All Critics (8)

American Fighter uses every possible movie cliché about an 'underdog' fighter who has to beat the odds and surpass people's low expectations to reach a certain goal. There's nothing creative or imaginative about this film.

July 10, 2021 | Full Review…

The cheesy action movie cliches don't quite prevent this from being an enjoyable action movie.

June 2, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

B-movie regulars Tommy Flanagan and Sean Patrick Flanery face off as a shady promoter and Ali's grizzled mentor, respectively, but like the uninspired fight scenes, they're barely even going through the motions.

May 24, 2021 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Despite exhilarating, well-choreographed fight scenes, it's shallow, unfocused and fails to pack an emotional punch.

Here's why you need to see American Fighter. It's the fighting!

May 20, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The players give fair value, but not that extra something that would have lent this pathos or made us care. And if you've seen one savage beat-down, you've seen them all.
