Life story?
5 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

A very thin slice of Lenny McLean's life washed clean to within an inch of none existence.

The real Lenny Mclean was a criminal, thug, enforcer, street fighter and unlicensed boxer, who was far from invincible and who also ducked out of many challenges from more skilled opponents.

Later in life McLean ended up as an actor too, before being struck down at just 49.

An interesting life that is pretty much ignored in this film.

Instead we are presented 'lovable rogue' stereotype keeping his neighbours safe, a cartoon character, and his three fights with Roy Shaw.

And if that wasn't enough, McLean's facial ticks are exaggerated to a crazy level, rendering him a gurning fool.

Not good. Avoid.
