Better than Rocky

I know most people consider Rocky the best film about box but I liked Cinderella man more because it's based on a true story so it gets much more involved with the main character. It's much more exciting seeing him win you want him to succeed and see his dream of coming back become true.

Braddock's story is more moving because he wants to fight for his family to make them feel secure and never be hungry again.

The performances are fantastic especially Russell Crowe and the actor who played his trainer. He is funny and you like him as much as Braddock because he also is doing this for his wife so you see him having a lot in common with James so his care for him is genuine not just coach and boxer but you see a real friendship between them.

Rocky is not bad by any means but like I said this one is much better mainly due to being based on a true story

Punching Out of the Depression

(Flash Review)

Boxer James Braddock became an inspirational hero during the Great Depression as he like many others felt the true blow of poverty and fought his way back to his feet. He began his boxing career with lots of promise and potential until a couple of injuries derailed his hopes as the country's economy collapsed. His passion or desperation to get and keep his family out of poverty helped drive his miraculous boxing comeback. A very high quality and well-acted story told in a very expected and traditional way. Similarities to Rocky's story with the grit and determination but family was at stake for Braddock rather than just personal pride. The boxing scenes were well-shot and the editing was solid as a close to 2.5hr film didn't feel long. Quality.
