(gb) wrote: Not just a review of some of his greatest fights, but what life was like for the opponents after they fought Ali. A good, informative documentary.
(it) wrote: This is the second Futurama movie. Following directly the storyline from the first movie, this one is discussing about a beast that will control Earth by making everyone love the beast. Even if the movie is smart and fun, this time there are some very slow moment and it misses the magic of the first movie...

(br) wrote: A true 5 star. Non fiction drama that displays all the best qualities of film making. A rare insight into the great depression and the rise from the gutter to the top of the world. Acting, directing, character development all first rate. Yes it's a boxing movie but much more it's a story of the human spirit, the family and human triumph against the worst odds (literally...when the main character fights for the world championship he was the biggest underdog in heavyweight history).
(fr) wrote: What a fantastic film. Its a western melodrama with b-movie violence and absolutely gorgeous production design. The film also has musical elements, midgets, etc. This film is just pure cinematic bliss. Beautifully artistic but at the same time doesnt take itself too seriously.
(fr) wrote: Awkwardly paced, indifferently acted and laughably hokey.
(fr) wrote: Something not very realistic about it. A farily average movie. While not particularly inspired, it is at least watchable. You do want to see what happens next, despite not being on the most captivating ride of life.Also, movies like this often accentuate the "good" qualities in criminals & minimalize the heinousness of the crimes. (murder, theft, etc.)Joan Leslie is gorgeous, but that final scene with her was just horrible. Left a terrible taste. Nor did I like Ida Lupino getting mouthy with Bogart after spending the whole movie begging him to take her.But Bogart is fabulous. Can't take your eyes off him for a second. Cemented his status as a star. Good location, too.
