Trekathon 568: The Fight (VOY)

November 24th, 2012

Chakotay hallucinates a boxing movie.

Without quite noticing, I see we’re in another patch of movie pastiches. We’ve had gangster, 1950s SF serial, war movie, spy thriller. And now ‘boxing movie’, probably the greatest stretch seen to date. Or, I should say, boxing movie with an overlay of A Beautiful Mind for no reason that I could possibly discern.

If you liked boxing movies you’d probably get more out of this one. But for me it was an incomprehensible mish-mash – stuff that might have been meaningful to some, but not to me. And introducing a confusing history of mental illness for Chakotay did not make it better.

568 down, 169 to go.
