Movie Reviews

Movie Mom - 9/10 by Nell Minow This is a movie about honor and integrity and reputation that itself plays fast and loose with the underlying story.
About.com - 9/10 by Rebecca Murray An entertaining and intelligent father and son relationship drama
Film School Rejects - 9/10 by Kevin Carr not a big popcorn movie, but it's one not to be missed
Contra Costa Times - 9/10 by Mary F. Pols Jackson adopts a high, breathy voice to play the Champ and it gives him that vulnerability he needs to get away from his own bigger than life tough-guy persona.
Entertainment Spectrum - 9/10 by Vince Koehler This is the first movie of 2007 to change my way of thinking. It will have you cheering Champ on!
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 9/10 by Colin Covert This is at heart a story about fathers and sons and self-discovery, and on that score it's a knockout.
Laramie Movie Scope - 9/10 by Robert Roten This is a story that anyone should be able to relate to because we all fall short of perfection.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - 9/10 by Duane Dudek Resurrecting the Champ leaves a lot to be desired as a boxing movie. And compared with newsroom drama champs like Shattered Glass and Absence of Malice, it is undercard-caliber material.
Seattle Times - 9/10 by Tom Keogh There's no rule that says a movie must have a likable character at its center, but it helps if a nonlikable central character is at least interesting.
Dallas Morning News - 9/10 by Mario Tarradell Despite generating plenty of turmoil, Resurrecting the Champ fails to be compelling. It does, however, succeed in being implausible.
Compuserve - 9/10 by Harvey S. Karten This one would have fared better as a boxing movie rather than a sentimental pic about an ethically-challenged man's relationship with his 6-year-old son.
ComingSoon.net - 9/10 by Edward Douglas Another strong film from Lurie ... an endearing, crowd-pleasing drama.
