Body and Soul ★★ 1998 (R)

Cliched remake of the familiar boxing saga that finds ambitious boxer Mancini and his manager Chiklis heading for a potential championship bout in Reno. Manci-ni might still have the boxing moves but he's certainly no amateur and his professionalism is actually a deterrent. 95m/C VHS, DVD . Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, Michael Chiklis, Rod Steiger, Joe Mantegna, Jennifer Beals, Tahnee Welch; D: Sam Henry Kass; W: Sam Henry Kass; C: Arturo Smith; M: David Waters. CABLE
