  • Chris "Knuckles" Nilan is the focus of Alex Gibney's THE LAST GLADIATORS, a documentary that examines the role hockey "enforcers" -- tough guys hired to protect star hockey players on the ice and get into fights with each other -- played for decades in the NHL. Full of entertaining fight footage, and interviews with uber-tough guys like Tony Twist and Marty McSorley, Gibney's film also addresses head-on how the personalities of the men who did this job better than others have often made it very difficult for them to have a problem-free life after they are too old to continue their careers. THE LAST GLADIATORS played at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
  • Critic Reviews
    "Rife with game clips of fights and face-punching reminiscences, the film settles on one remarkable veteran, Chris Nilan, the Boston-born resident bruiser of the Montreal Canadiens in the 1980s, known as Knuckles."
