Movie Reviews

Long Island Press - 9/10 by Prairie Miller If only the film had stayed out of the bedroom and in the bowels of the boxing world, this small gem could have been an unqualified knockout.
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.
Filmcritic.com - 9/10 by Jules Brenner a contender that doesn't quite take a championship belt.
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.
Boston Herald - 9/10 by Stephen Schaefer With his unexpectedly subtle and moving performance, Hartnett shows he can hold his own, even opposite a scene-stealing Jackson, and by showing vulnerability in scenes with his son.
ComingSoon.net - 9/10 by Edward Douglas Another strong film from Lurie ... an endearing, crowd-pleasing drama.
Newsday - 8/10 by Gene Seymour When Resurrecting the Champ climbs off its high horse and makes itself comfortable within the contours of daily newsroom life, with its alternating languor and tension, the movie feels authentic and lived-in.
WaffleMovies.com - 8/10 by Willie Waffle Director Rod Lurie delivers a compelling story dramatic when it needs to be, touching in the right places and full of strong acting performances (even the guy with that crazy voice).
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Mick LaSalle It's the complexity of Lurie's moral universe that makes it linger in the mind.
