A drifter (Charles Bronson) blows into Depression-era New Orleans, and impresses a sleazy promoter (James Coburn) into backing him in the underground bare-knuckle fight circuit. He demolishes the local competition, but can he deal with the big money's imported talent? Gritty and bruising directorial bow for Walter Hill co-stars Jill Ireland, Strother Martin. 94 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
