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.
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.
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.
Giant Magazine - 9/10 by Ethan Alter It's the scrappy underdog in a season full of blockbuster heavyweights.
Filmcritic.com - 9/10 by Jules Brenner a contender that doesn't quite take a championship belt.
UGO - 9/10 by Brian Tallerico The writers and director bury their own story and never give their audience a reason to care about their journalist's fight for redemption.
Film School Rejects - 9/10 by Kevin Carr not a big popcorn movie, but it's one not to be missed
ComingSoon.net - 9/10 by Edward Douglas Another strong film from Lurie ... an endearing, crowd-pleasing drama.
Baltimore Sun - 9/10 by Michael Sragow ...Jackson acts with a Hemingway-esque authority. He captures in actor's terms what Hemingway caught in words -- the lyricism of raw actuality.
Reel.com - 8/10 by Pam Grady Ultimately, the film fails because it never answers the question of why anyone should care about this guy who cares so little about himself that he lands himself in trouble in the first place.
Film Threat - 8/10 by Zack Haddad It is great to see a boxing movie that portrays both boxing and Jackson in different lights.
