Two Line Reviews - #242

Movie: Cinderella Man (2005)

Plot: A promising boxer James.J.Braddock is among the thousands hit by the Great Economic depression of the 30s and to make ends meet, plays petty matches and takes up wager work thereby deepening his financial crisis. Opportunity knocks his door after 4 years and he makes a highly inspiring comeback that gives hope for a financially stuttering New Jersey populace.

  • This one joins the Rocky 1,2,3,4 league for its wonderful making and the stress on the financial angle shown makes it different from the Stallone series.
  • Russell Crowe lives the role of a pugilist and he is damn convincing with his antics on the ring; Off it, his scenes with his wife and manager (both being his unshakably supportive pillars and wonderful characterisations at that!) are emotionally touching and brilliant.
  • The way he fights on and off the ring for his family/his kids makes the character a true inspiration. The truely believable boxing matches show the quality of the stunt co-ordinators' efforts.
Highly Inspiring stuff; Take a bow,Russell Crowe.
