Movie Reviews

Not accurate, and just average
ron rossi 22 | colorado | 04/12/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a big Marciano fan and cant wait for a realistic movie to come out about him, unfortunately this was not it. If your not familiar with Marciano you may like this simply as a decent piece of filmmaking, but if your looking for an accurate account of the real man, this isnt even close. The cast is okay (penelope miller, and john favreau, among others), but the writing is second rate and as I said, not at all true to the real life story of this great champion. Most egregious was the personality portrayal, a cockiness and even arrogance that was the complete opposite to the humble and soft spoken demeanor of the real Rocky. I dont understand why they didnt consult the family members for guidance because Rockys real life was certainly fascinating, and does not need to be exagerrated to provide interest. As others pointed out there were also events that just never happenned (visiting Louis in a hospital) . Besides the historical inaccuracies this movie really was just average in terms of entertainment. Someday I hope to see a better account that this great hero deserves. James Cameron, Ron Howard are you listening?"
A different kind of boxing movie
The Monarch | Philadelphia ,PA USA | 02/16/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Boxing films:We've seen it all's Rocky Balboa, over and over again. Here's a breath of fresh air- a true story about a real champion. Jon Favreau is terrific as Rocky Marciano, who seemed to be a really nice guy who took care of his friends and family. I watched this film not knowing anything about Rocky Marciano other than the fact that he was a boxer, and this film did a good job at educating me, without ever being sappy or boring."
