"It’s really one of the strangest and most daring films I have seen. And, considering I have over 16,000 reviews to my credit so far on IMDb, that’s saying quite a bit." Martin Hafer - Film Critic, Influx Magazine 2014
"While some films depend on lavish CGI flights of fancy 'The Fighter’s Ballad' draws its strength from its simplicity. There’s an impressive visual sheen - and the dialogue is given a weighty intensity by the superb performances of Peter Cadwell and Clive Russell."
Danny Leigh - Film Critic and Co-host of BBC One, Film 2012
