Did anyone watch that t.v. show The Wire?Well the plot of OTW is a little bit similar.Seacon 3 i think it was,the one with the corrupt union at the shipping yard.The same story is in effect here,there’s a corrupt union and they start knocking off people who are going to inform against them and then the police roll in.Brando plays Terry,his older brother is part of these mobster in the union,and he was a professional boxer and as the line goes “He could have been someone,he could have been a contender” but his mob brother made him throw a fight and the other guy got the shot at the title.Brandos character is the basic brawn over brains but he has a conscience and it gets the better of him.The music can be a bit loud in parts,at around 30 minutes from the end i had to drop it from 100% down to 30% because it just jumped up loud as fuck,so look out if you’re listening with earphones.

IMDB RATING      –     8.2
MY RATING     –    7.5
SEEN BEFORE     –     NO
RECOMMEND?     –     NO
OVERALL     –  BRANDOS GOOD AND ALL THAT,BUT THE AUDIO FRIED MY EARS TOO MUCH.
