review by
Mike Haberfelner

Dusty's (Kazy Tauginas) is a young boxer with what's possibly the most important fight of his career ahead of him, defending his title against up-and-coming boxer Quinn (Quincy Chad) - but he's not his old self of late, he's always tired and his whole body is hurting, and neither is due to lack of disipline or sheer negligence. Dusty's doctor tells him he's suffering from systemic lupus - a condition affecting his immune system - and that to continue boxing might prove fatal ... plus he now needs steroids he has professionally stunned as a boxer to even keep on his two legs. This is quite the blow for him, as boxing was Dusty's life, and he tries everything to avert this in his eyes bitter fate ... but ultimately, he has to announce his retirement and come to grips with his life after boxing. Thing is, his almost-opponent Quinn doesn't buy it and tries to get his shot at the title, no matter what - even if it means provoking the hell out of Dusty ...


A very nice and economically written sports drama, Standing Eight manages to pack a rather epic story into a bit over 20 minutes of runtime, and telling the story in a way that's touching without being overly dramatic, and that feels real without being overly gritty. And a very competent key cast who also look their roles really help bringing the story across of course.
