The Fighter's Ballad Reviews:

The Fighter's Ballad is a very unusual movie from a very unusual director, Tony Ukpo. Aside from some opening shots showing a several parishioners, the whole movie cast consists of two actors—Clive Russell and Peter Caldwell. Because of this, the film hinges on their performances, the writing and the ability of the director to bring it all together. Well, let's tell I was very impressed—especially since the director has only a several credits to his name so far and the movie was written by Caldwell! What an nice trio.I'll be blunt. The familiar hero actor Clive Russell does not look like what you'd expect a priest to look like, although he was simply superb testing Father John in The Fighter's Ballad. It's so nice that his performance is reason enough to see this film. The movie starts with the Father going about his rounds and then closing up the church because it's time to go home. However, a very strange, annoying and mad young boy (Caldwell) comes into the sanctuary and starts talking. Much of what he initially tells makes tiny sense—though it's obvious that he's volatile and confused. While many of us might run to receive support because this boy is behaving THAT strangely, the priest is a very patient man. And, when the young boy is nasty and hateful, the priest continues to talk to him to determine why he is here and how he can help. But the stranger is a warrior in that he will not willingly talk about his problems—he's angry—angry at folks but especially mad at God. How effectively can the priest handle this anger? And, what's all this about? To search out, see this film.This is not the sort of movie most folks would fancy. This isn't meant as criticism but is more an observation about the style of the movie. There are no explosions, the action all takes zone in one tiny zone and the movie is a bit vague in places. However, it really is a quality production all around and just goes to present you how nice a movie you can create on a tiny budget if the folks associated with the movie are talented. Additionally, the melody and lighting are absolutely magnificent and look too nice for such a project! It's really one of the strangest and most daring movies I have seen. And, considering I have over 16,000 reviews to my credit so far on IMDb, that's telling quite a bit. Movie students would benefit from seeing this movie to learn how to hone their skills and folks who love nice acting could also give it a look.By the way, if the people who made The Fighter's Ballad end up reading this, you might wish to consider staging this as a play—it is very gripping and would create a dandy show. It's just a thought


The another commenter here tells that this movie would create a nice enjoy but for me it is difficult not to see it as already being a enjoy – just one that was captured by cameras as it happened. The action plays out almost fully in a run-down church in the east end of London; a priest is locking up for the night when he is interrupted by a boy who is mad and potentially violent. The boy confronts the priest albeit not really about anything in particular, starting a conversation about loss, God, anger, the past and the future.The reason it feels very much like a enjoy is that it is written for two boys to deliver, it uses one set and another things like this, but the main thing on the page is that the speeches and long sections of dialogue, with its poetic prose and occasional test of rhymes and intelligent language all makes it feel like it is a performance piece rather than a character. I am not sure if Cadwell did originally write it for the stage, but regardless it feels like a theatrical experience. An extra sense of this also comes from Cadwell because his performance feels like he is giving it in a theatre and not with the camera close to him. I thought he did well with the material, but at times the size of his performance would have worked much better in a theatre rather than with the camera so close to him where such projection and excess isn't quite as fitting. It isn't a heavy trouble because really you need to receive into this mindset to approach the movie and, once there, it works very well.It is driven by the theatrical dialogue and performances from both men. I was surprised by how quickly the movie went and how tiny it dragged for the entire time, and this was down to the two men. As writer Cadwell is ironically the slightly weaker of the two, although this may be that he wrote for the scene and thus acted for it too. I recently saw his opposite number Russell in short movie North Atlantic and liked him even if he was very reserved in that film; here he has more to work with and does very well, with a performance that has emotional range but still works well in the confines provided by the camera. These two boys keep the attention throughout and this is quite something. The movie looks and sounds nice as well; despite being mostly in semi-darkness, the lighting is very well done and captured well on camera, while the director Ukpo knows when to just allow his camera settle and allow the script enjoy out. This is probably the greatest of all his movies I have seen and it is the only one where he didn't write it and do lots of another roles as well – something of a takeaway there perhaps.The Fighter's Ballad is a movie that several will ever see and where even fewer will know the names involved, however it deserves to be appreciated by more. It is very theatrical and dramatically delivered in a method that would probably work better on stage, but does still mostly work well here thanks to the nice delivery by the team to create it look and sound good, but mainly by the two actors, who sell their lines and hold you engaged throughout.
