Format: DVD
It's very rare a young actor makes such a great positive impression in his debut film.British actor, Steve Bell, does just that!A natural talent, his acting carries this film.Although one cannot ignore how physically beautiful he is, his acting is what matters here.Playing a blackpool fighter(Steve boxed in real life), he carries his role with a masculine swagger, while also displaying a tenderness so rarely captured on film.Struggling with his own sexuality, gay audiences will embrace this performance and straight audiences will find this film proves it appeals to mainstream viewers as well.Soon, gay themed films will not be seperated from "straight" themed films, as love is universal.And this film is ground-breaking as it never depends on stereotype.Roger Daltrey, lead singer of the legendary rock band, THE WHO, shows he has great acting chops, as does Ian Rose.Brilliantly directed by, Paul Orewland, this film is my favorite gay themed film, along with the American film, "Edge of seventeen."I will cherish this film over and over.And, once again, I must say, Steve Bell is sexy, brilliant, and impossible to keep your eyes off of him!!

Its a movie about finding love, sex , quarrel , get back together , quarrel ..... You get what I mean?
Unless you simply buy this movie just to see the two lead actors butt pressing upon each other, its not worth seeing.
Acting wasn't genuine like as though they are being themselves which shouldn't be the case. In other words they can't act except for the bitchy boss. If you must, simply rent to see the short sex scenes or else pass this movie. Not worth it.

A likeable and capable cast in a well-made movie.
An unlikely relationship develops between an ambitious music promoter and an amateur boxer who is struggling to come to terms with his being gay
Steve Bell, (A real life title-holding boxer,) is a real find, a relatively inexperienced actor with a natural talent and a dynamic screen presence.
Ian Rose also excels in the other lead role.
Roger Daltrey gives a standout performance as a sleazy record producer.
Well written, sensitively acted and directed, the movie is one not to miss!

This is not your typical gender-meets-gender story. If you're looking for utopian characters, gorgeous scenery and excruciatingly snappy dialog (a la "Friends"), you definitely won't find it here. But the main characters are so genuinely interesting (and in Craig and Matt's case, likeable in spite of their flaws) I still found this film vastly satisfying.
My only real complaint is that the story ends too quickly. Not that the film itself is too short, but as soon as both lead characters have made life-changing decisions we're given film credits.
A note of caution: Anyone who's adverse to no-holds-barred, bare knuckle fighting should steer clear of this film. After several viewings the fight sequences still make me cringe.

"Like It Is," directed by Paul Oremland, is a love story that takes the viewer into England's gay scene. The story concerns Craig (Steve Bell), a tough young man from Blackpool who earns a bloody (literally) living in the sleazy world of bare-knuckle fighting. He becomes involved with the slick, ambitious Matt (Ian Rose), who works in London's music and nightclub industries. Thus the stage is set not just for a love story, but also for a potent culture clash.
I really enjoyed this film. Director Oremland is unflinching in his portrayal of the violence, drug use, and sexuality of his characters' lives, but the film also is very sensitive in its exploration of their emotional worlds. There is an amusing vein of satire running throughout in the film's handling of a "boy band" subplot.
Roger Daltrey turns in a great supporting performance as Matt's boss, an older gay man with a leering, mischievous charm. But the film really is carried by the two leads. Bell and Rose have a palpable onscreen chemistry and really bring life to these conflicted characters. In a way, "Like It Is" is a very old-fashioned love story that asks basic, universal questions about relationships and the possibility of true love.

This is an excellant film that delivers. The acting was great and the cast was perfect. It had some dark moments but overall was uplifting. It breaks the typical model of gay men in one aspect and upholds the model in others. An enjoyable paradox. Add this one to your collection, I did.

Its not pretty, not brilliantly acted, small budget and the storylines a bit trashy - I really enjoyed it though not really sure why. I think I just got it. I wasn't expecting a brilliant film and had no pre-conceptions about how it would be. This helped a lot. I've recommended it to many people and opinions are divided. I found it to be enjoyable and fun though, and it doesn't take itself too seriously. A very different film.

Fun, energetic, & sweet. This boxer knows how to get his man. I saw this Gay & Lesbian short film festival, & I was awe seeing what these guys had to go through. Jealously, & being in the closet can be a deadly thing at times. It's definitely a must buy or have in your G&L Collection, I know it's in mine.
