A glimpse of what Sly could have been
This is a real hidden gem of a film. Thought provoking, intelligent and times indignant, without resorting to sentimentality.
Contrast this,with the commercially lucrative but artistically meaningless “Crash, Bang, Wallop” movies that Stallone became synonymous with in the 1980s.
Stallone can act when he wants to, and FIST amply demonstrates this wasted potential.
Based (very loosely) on the life of the Teamsters boss, Jimmy Hoffa, FIST charts the rise and fall of a Trade Union leader. A cautionary tale of how noble causes can be sullied by ambition and hubris.
I highly recommend it, if only to convince others that Stallone occasionally turned in a credible performance without the promise of a big pay day.
fist a start of union revolution one man fight for the cause
action superstar Sylvester Stallone is nothing short of sensational as he takes on mobsters, corrupt union officials and a us senator in his bold action packed tale of greed and deadly rivalries johnny kovack is an honest hard working factory employees who gives his all for the Aemrican dream. But after years of harsh injustices and dehumanizing conditions, he takes it upon himself to lead a massive campaign to unionize the company’s workers. And when the firm responds with threats, intimidation and murder, Johnny is forced to compromise his principles and join with organized crime figures just so he can utilize their muscle and influence ! but as he sacrifices more and more of his ideals for the cause, Johnny realizes that in order to win, he may have to surrender much more than his honor – he may have to surrender his life. Charged with hard hitting action and magnificent performance by Stallone, Rod Steiger, Peter Boyle, and Brian Dennehy this searing drama, is superb and powerful movie from the seventies that really pack a punch it’s just under two hours I Give it 7/10. enjoy and old style movie.
