Jack ist ein Teenager, der sich für Videospiele begeistert und eines Tages ohne Vorwarnung ins alte China transportiert wird. Dort soll er eine entführte Prinzessin aus den Händen des Feindes befreien, der durch die arrangierte Ehe die Herrschaft über das Königreich anstrebt. Jack soll die Truppen beim Kampf gegen den bösartigen und übermächtigen Kriegsherren unterstützen - und da er keine Kampferfahrung hat, muss er sich auf seine Videospielkenntnisse verlassen, die ihm bei der Ausbildung zum Kung-Fu-Kämpfer hilfreich sind.
With the success of the critically acclaimed, Academy Award-winning film The Fighter, the world stood up and cheered for the inspiring true story of Micky Ward - a heart-and-soul warrior who overcame the odds to make history in the ring. But that was only part of the tale.... Now, in his own words, ´´Irish´´ Micky Ward tells his inspirational life story as only he can. From his first bout at the age of seven, Micky Ward was known first and foremost for giving as good as he got, and for leaving absolutely everything he had in the ring. When he fought, quitting was never an option. It was that indomitable spirit that would allow him to survive, battle against, and overcome the harsh realities that he faced every day of his life. For it was outside the ring that Ward´s heart would be most needed, from witnessing his idolized older half-brother Dicky fall from grace, to dealing with his wildly dysfunctional - if frighteningly loyal - family, to the darkest of secrets that he has never revealed until now, and the numerous setbacks and defeats that would have stopped a lesser man. Micky Ward has remained a fighter, through and through - both as a professional boxer, and as a man who finally found his greatest strength in friendship, family, and faith in himself From the rough streets of Lowell, Massachusetts, to the blood and sweat of the international fight game, to the bright lights and adulation of Hollywood, this is the rousing, moving, tragic, and humorous story of the one and only Micky Ward. 1.
