  1. Much of the resulting material is very funny, though there are a few times when the filmmakers patronize or mock their subjects in a way that makes you uncomfortable.
  2. 60
    All of the interviewees are compelling, whether proudly showing off bruises and bullet holes from on-the-job scuffles, or voicing their opinions about how the profession has changed.
  3. 50
    The breakout star is retired English bouncer Lenny McLean, 49, who memorably declares, "I f***ing hate violence."
  4. 40
    The picture is obsessed with strength and the use of physical force, though its attitudes are often slippery.
  5. Cantor seems to have noticed how dull the actual footage is, since he relies heavily on "arty" shots and black-and-white inserts.
  6. 10
    Mindless, shoddy (lurching zooms, no color correction, an entire reel out of sync) depiction of some very big guys who work as bouncers.
