Overview

F.I.S.T. is author Norman Jewison's chronicle of an innocent and idealistic young man corrupted by power and success as seen through the rise of the United States labor movement. Sylvester Stallone plays a Jimmy Hoffa-inspired figure who rises through the union ranks during turbulent labor times. The film begins in 1937 during the burgeoning of the labor movement. Johnny Kovak Sylvester Stallone works on the dock unloading trucks for Win Talbot's Henry Wilcoxon trucking company. He turns to organizing the truckers for union representative Mike Monahan Richard Herd. When Monahan is killed in a fight by strong-arm men hired by the company, Johnny becomes involved with Vince Doyle Kevin Conway, the local gangster. After an angry response by the union, culminating in a massive riot, Johnny firmly aligns himself with Doyle, and the mob gets its meathooks further into the union. Thanks to the infusion of mob support, the union grows rich and powerful, along with Johnny. By the end of the 1950s, Johnny has so much power that he even manages to blackmail international union leader Max Graham Peter Boyle out of his job. Johnny is sitting on top of the world -- that is, until crusading United States senator Andrew Madison Rod Steiger targets Johnny's union for a federal investigation.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Although years of Rocky and Rambo sequels and their like took their toll on Sylvester Stallone's acting aspirations, the fact is that when he began he showed some promise as an actor. F.I.S.T. is a reminder that, while he may not ever be in the same league as Robert De Niro, Stallone is capable of turning in an effective dramatic performance that does not simply trade upon his powerful physicality and enormous self-confidence. He displays a fine sensitivity in a number of scenes, including his bumbling efforts at winning the hand of Melinda Dillon, and he finds variety in his confrontations with his various nemeses, confrontations that could easily become monotonous. Equally important, he provides the presence that is necessary to hold together this would-be epic. Presumably the sure and experienced hand of Norman Jewison was of help in molding his performance, as well as in drawing fine support from Peter Boyle, Rod Steiger and Dillon. Jewison is less successful at bringing the various strands of the tale together, with the result that it lags after the first 90 minutes or so and loses too much steam before the end. Stallone and Joe Ezterhas's script runs off track occasionally, and it never delves as deeply or as meaningfully into the characters and situations as it think it does. Still, F.I.S.T. is a moderately enthralling flick with a number of pleasant surprises.
