Movie Reviews

Dempsey uncut...finally!
Scott Prazak | Goose Creek, SC USA | 08/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When Dempsey was released as a TV movie in 1983, it was presented at 2 hours 24 minutes (minus commercials). Years later, the film was released on VHS with at least ten minutes cut and a sex scene inserted! Well, it's 2005, and finally Dempsey is on DVD the way it was presented in its original cut.

As far as the story, it follows all the major parts of his life pretty accurately. Treat Williams is terrific as the Manassa Mauler. Sam Waterston, in the role in which I always identify him, plays the perfect foxy Jack Kearns.

The fight reinactments are just downright creepy, especially Dempsey's title-winning fight against Jess Willard. If you ever see old films of the actual fight, and then watch this, you will literally be staring open-mouthed at the accuracy director Gus Trikonis applied, not just the settings but the casting as well.

Boxing historians may point out a few glicks here and there. However overall, this film has garnered praise from fight fans and non-fight fans alike. There are no extra features on the DVD except for subtitles, but I can't complain. I'm just happy to finally get it!"
DEMPSEY WAS A KNOCKOUT
Ray Lamascus | MANSFIELD TX. | 05/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"DEMPSEY WAS A KNOCKOUT FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. IT WAS A VERY INFORMATIVE MOVIE AND I THOUGHT WAS VERY ACCURATE OF HIS LIFE. THE ACTING WAS TOP NOTCH FOR EVERY CHARACTER. I LOVE THE BOXERS OF OLD AND THIS WAS EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT AND HOPED IT WOULD BE."

""Dempsey" is a believable look at the life and times of Jack Dempsey, and the fight scenes are well-staged. RPD"
