About this deal

The golden age of Hollywood is long gone now, but that chase for an audience still goes on, and it helps if a film does more than one thing. His reasons for taking down the bad guy are sincere and played out well making him slightly more complex than just a con man trying to win big money. Ex-con Gabriel Caine and partner Fitz cook up a plan to take rich Diggstown resident John Gillon for all he’s worth. Whether from ill judged performances or miscasting is uncertain, but here he is perfectly cast as Gabriel Caine, a slick, fast talking hustler.

His softer side only comes out when he’s trying to protect his son (Jim Caviezel) but even then his actions only help to showcase his flaws. We are licensed though the major international studios to issue public and commercial non-theatrical screening licenses to the Republic of Ireland. However, the good news is that now everyone can enjoy what is essentially a boys film, but truly one of the great underrated films of all time. In the romantic comedy 'Bull Durham' (1988), seasoned baseball player (Kevin Costner) is assigned to coach a hot-shot newcomer (Tim Robbins).The disc will play perfectly without interruption and the case, inlay notes and sleeve may show limited signs of wear. Doing time has proved to be a valuable learning experience where he first heard of Diggstown, the rural capital of illegal cash fighting, which, as a gambling venture, is a con artist’s dream.

Believing himself to also be a con man and smarter than most, it’s almost delightful to see him fail. All copyrighted material (movie posters, DVD covers, stills, trailers) and trademarks belong to their respective producers and/or distributors.

Hier ist wirklich eine sehr gelungene Box-Alternative zu Rocky oder Raging Bull vom Cast bis zum Drehbuch hat man hier wirklich gute Arbeit geleistet. It does serve to provide motivation for the characters, but then the light-heartedness begins to creep back in, and the dénouement seems out of place given the occurrences 30 minutes prior. Diggstown (known as Midnight Sting in the UK and Ireland), is a 1992 American sports comedy-drama film directed by Michael Ritchie and written by Steven McKay, based on the 1978 novel The Diggstown Ringers by Leonard Wise.

Caine discovers that Gillon's treachery (and his bank account) goes deeper than Diggstown people know. Gossett, Dern, and Cobb all deliver fine supporting turns, as do Oliver Platt, Orestes Matacena, and Heather Graham. Part boxing flick (think Rocky) and part con thriller (think Oceans Eleven) the movie takes twists and turns where you’re never quite sure who will come out on top. Please consider expanding the lead to provide an accessible overview of all important aspects of the article. He plays the boxer with a sympathy and depth of soul that contrasts well with Caine, and the scenes with the two of them are excellent.

The film is decidedly low budget and simply made, but benefits from a good script and a stellar cast. As the fights begin and the double crosses begin to spiral out of control, Palmer must reach inside himself to recapture the glory of his youth and ensure victory for Caine. For con artist Gabriel Caine (Woods), Diggstown is the promised land, legendary for its high-stakes boxing matches that attract high-rollers from miles around.

Caine will supply a fighter he's convinced will beat any 10 men whom Diggstown has to offer over the course of one day. Robby Gillon, the son of John Gillon, approaches the ring next, but then backs out under instructions from his father.Sam Lester (played by Roger Hewlett), who is secretly given a laxative before the fight and eventually runs from the ring. It`s a good reason why early Hollywood films would have a bit of everything thrown in, action, adventure, romance, as well as a little singing and dancing.
