Below is an excerpt from my review of Creed
“Boxing films have done very well in the past and they continue to do so. These movies embrace the beloved themes of Hollywood; an underdog rising to the top, the struggle to succeed and a strong connect with the audience through strong emotions and action; all symbolic of the sport.”
I think the same goes for Cinderella Man too. It’s just that this time the motivation for the protagonist was at a much higher level when compared to films like Rocky series. Knowing that the film is based on a true story, made the movie watching experience much better. Russel Crowe was amazing as always. The movie itself is rich in values/morals and provides for a good family watch.
A must watch movie!!
