Shawn McArthur (Channing Tatum) is struggling to stay alive in New York City, until his involvement in an ugly brawl catches the attention of Harvey Boarden (Terrance Howard). Recognizing a good contender when he sees one, Harvey introduces Shawn to the sport of illegal street fighting. It's a chance to earn some big money --but participating doesn't come without a price.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Fighting...

Fighting After thieves steal items from pedestrians and vendors in a busy downtown business district, a fight breaks out on the street. A man cases out possible recruits for a fight club. Brawls between combatants (without any protective gear or rules) are held in a church, alleys, expensive apartments and an Asian brothel. Characters punch, kick and choke one another. Facial abrasions and some bloody cuts are seen. A bullet injures a man’s ear. Cross dressers are seen in a brothel-type building. A picture of a naked woman is seen on the wall. Profanities, scatological slang terms and racial slurs are used. Characters gamble and steal money. A couple kisses passionately. Sexual activity is suggested but not seen. Characters are shown drinking and smoking on numerous occasions.

Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Fighting.

Channing Tatum plays another down-and-out character that uses dancing to help him Step Up. He also stars as a basketball player who gets locked out of the gym because of his grades in Coach Carter. Like Harvey Boarden, boxing agent Jon Gould believes in keeping up appearances and being ready for business in Cinderella Man.
