Movie Reviews

7M Pictures - 9/10 by Kevin Carr a must see for the performances
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA) - 8/10 by Linda Cook Reporters also refer to what they write as "my story."
Charlotte Observer - 8/10 by Lawrence Toppman About a guy who stood on the brink of greatness but, because of one flaw he could never overcome, had to settle for being pretty good before he faded away. Strange, then, that the movie works exactly the same way.
Seacoast Newspapers (NH/Maine) - 8/10 by Gina Carbone Everything is about winning respect versus earning it. This film earned mine. I'm glad I took a chance on it. By the look of my theater, not many others did.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert Jackson disappears into his role, completely convincing, but then he usually is. What a fine actor. He avoids pitfalls like making Champ a maudlin tearjerker, looking for pity. He's realistic, even philosophical, about his life and what happened to him.
Film Threat - 8/10 by Zack Haddad It is great to see a boxing movie that portrays both boxing and Jackson in different lights.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Mick LaSalle It's the complexity of Lurie's moral universe that makes it linger in the mind.
KPBS.org - 8/10 by Beth Accomando Lurie's film actually works better as a study of a reporter coping with ambition and ethics as opposed to a story about Kernan and Champ or Kernan and his son.
