2 out of 10 one for the money
Kevin from Dublin, 23 Jul 2007
I remember a classic norman wisdom film about a milkman who suddenly gets put into a world title fight so I figured this might be some sort of remake. Not in the slightest. This was a film orlando did because he owed his friend the director a favour but it did neither of them any I'd imagine as the acting is terrible. Also stars Billie piper but not for very long. Shot in a documentary style for the main part but not great at all, a few good scenes.

What's it about....
He doesn't just beat his opponents, he creams them! Young milkman and amateur boxer 'Calcium Kid' Jimmy (Bloom) is just as stunned as the rest of the boxing world when, through an unusual (to say the least) sequence of events, he's offered the opportunity to fight the world champion in his home town. Jimmy's got a lotta bottle and he's going to need it too!
