DRUM - - Chill Out - – PETRUS MALHERBE

This film tells the true story of ’70s boxing champ Roberto Du­ran (played by Edgar Ramirez), a hot­tem­pered street brawler from Panama who fa­mously beat un­de­feated WBC wel­ter­weight champ Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Ray­mond).

Edgar tries his best to bring Roberto to life but Robert De Niro’s unin­spired turn as his coach brings down the whole movie.
