        Get up, Joe! 5

        There are many strange things that can lead to friendship, so why not boxing ... Well, watching the same breath is guaranteed. And not just fans of Yamashita. The film lacks the beautiful, dynamic staff that would be interested in and just the person seeking that would look new and nice to spend a couple hours in the evening. Although boxing is in the film leading role (just for Yamashita *laugh*) and you're always cheering, and jumping on the couch, looking as if the present confrontation between the real boxers. But the main emotion you get in the end, with the last frame to the last gesture of Rikishi and Joe grinned. When it comes to understanding that blows in the ring it's not a fight. It's like a dialogue in their own language in their own world for two. Then you spread out on the couch with a sense of understanding and complete satisfaction that the two hours you've spent your life for a reason.
