Product Description

Product Description

Robert De Niro gives the performance of his career as Jake La Motta, a boxer whose psychological and sexual complexities erupt into violence both in and out of the ring. Joe Pesci and Cathy Moriarty are unforgettable as the brother who falls prey to Jake’s mounting paranoia and jealousy, and the fifteen-year-old girl who becomes his most prized trophy. Raging Bull garnered eight Oscar nominations, and won two, including Best Actor for De Niro.

From Amazon.co.uk

Martin Scorsese's brutal black-and-white biography of self-destructive boxer Jake LaMotta was chosen as the best film of the 1980s in a major critics' poll at the end of the decade, and it's a knockout piece of filmmaking. Robert De Niro plays LaMotta (famously putting on 50 pounds for the later scenes), a man tormented by demons he doesn't understand and prone to uncontrollably violent temper tantrums and fits of irrational jealousy. He marries a striking young blond (Cathy Moriarty), his sexual ideal, and then terrorises her with never-ending accusations of infidelity. Jake is as frightening as he is pathetic, unable to control or comprehend the baser instincts that periodically, and without warning, turn him into the rampaging beast of the title. But as Roman Catholic Scorsese sees it, he works off his sins in the boxing ring, where his greatest athletic talent is his ability to withstand punishment. The fight scenes are astounding; they're like barbaric ritual dance numbers. Images smash into one another--a flashbulb, a spray of sweat, a fist, a geyser of blood--until you feel dazed from the pummeling. Nominated for a handful of Academy Awards (including best picture and director), Raging Bull won only two, for De Niro and for editor Thelma Schoonmacher. --Jim Emerson

Can I assume that you are all familiar with this film? An iconic classic that features one of the finest ever performances from Robert Deniro as Jake LaMotta, chronicling the rise and fall of the ill-tempered, insecure, flawed man but brilliant boxer. You are? Good, ill move onto the Bluray itself then. If you aren't familiar with this movie though, you owe it to yourself to see it. Fantastic acting performances from literally everyone involved, beautifully shot in black and white with a mesmerising soundtrack and moments in the boxing ring that look, at times, impossibly authentic.

This 30th Anniversary edition of Raging Bull uses the same transfer as the 2009 Bluray release, although that is no bad thing to be honest. The picture quality is excellent and one of the finest Bluay transfers from a 1980's film ive seen. Blacks are solid, whites are nice and crisp, the greys are varied which considering it was shot in black and white means a lot. Fine detail is very good and no DNR has been applied. There is a layer of grain over the picture, but not only is this a natural by product of the film used, it also adds to the gritty realism of the movie. Inside the boxing ring you can see the swirls of smoke passing across the ring lights, the beads of sweat on the boxers, and the blood appears thick and dark. The increased detail also allows you to really appreciate the shape Deniro got himself in to play this role. Which makes the transformation to washed up LaMotta all the more impressive.

The DTS-HD audio track is also very good, standing out in particular during the boxing scenes. You really get the feeling that you are in their with LaMotta.

Extras: Some quality extras here, most of them will have been seen before though.

This is by far De Niro's best performance, and that is saying something. The performance is raw and he depicts the boxer La Motta perfectly. The film shows the highs and lows of the boxer Jake La Motta, and the film is a real roller-coaster ride, De Niro takes you through all the emotions, and put together with Scorsese's brilliant direction, this film is well worth its title of 'Best film of the 80s'.
Raging Bull is the best sports film ever made, the sheer emotion it puts you through, the detailed fights scenes, the first-class sound, this has never been repeated on big screen. Rocky may be fans favourite, but this is the best.
It is hard to believe that De Niro trained for the part for over a year, fought in three fights, then shot the film, take a few months out of filming to put on 50 pounds and then finished filming. Not only the best actor, but also this shows commitment to the part.
I loved Raging Bull from the first time I saw it, I am sure I am not the only one.

First of all I think that Martin Scorsese is one of the best directors out there, and this movie clearly shows why. The movie looks great in black and white, you would think that it was made in the 1940's, the acting by the main cast, as well as the rest of the cast is great and the story is great. Now I don't know much about the real Jake La Motta or his career, but I would have to say that this movie is really well done. It gives you a realistic account of what being a struggling boxer is like, with all of the weight that you have to gain and lose, all of the stress that is involved in being a boxer and trying to become a champion, and the toll that all of this can have on your mind and body. The only issue that I have with this movie, is that the fights are not that long, all you see on most of the fights is a few shots being thrown and then it is over. Also as much as I think this movie looks great in black and white, I wish that they would have released a colorized version with this blu ray, this is the 21st century after all and I think that it would have made some of the scenes pop a little bit more. All in all I give this movie 8/10.

P.S if you want to see another movie about the life of Jake La Motta, there is another movie called The Bronx Bull, starring William Forsythe.

A lot of people feel this is De Nero’s best film, and though I prefer Taxi Driver, who am I to argue? Most certainly the tale of Jake La Motta, is an action – packed, real life epic. Jake is still going strong at 93!
Raging Bull was not a big box office success; time has been more than kind to the film, now of course it’s regarded as a classic.
De Nero had already won his first Oscar in Godfather 11; this became his second - to date.
The story is very true to LaMotta’s career. He fought Sugar Ray Robinson an incredible six times!
De Nero, with his nose job, actually looks a little like LaMotta. For the latter part of the film, when Jake was fat, De Nero went away for several months of eating, and put on nearly five stones!
Excellent film – I love the De Nero - Joe Pesci combo's – all great films.
And finally, according to his biographies, LaMotta, was, as the film shows, a brute to his women. He’s been married six times and remains a very popular character in America.

By Keith M TOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Jun. 2014
Format: DVD
Martin Scorsese 'topped and tailed’ his 1980 'biopic’ (a wholly underselling description) of Bronx-born boxer Jake LaMotta with two magnificent scenes – opening with a balletic-like Robert De Niro floating, slo-mo, across the ring to Mascagni’s Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana and thence, having come full circle, to the same actor’s (though almost unrecognisable due to his 'new’ frame) warm-up 'Brando routine’, before hitting the 'down and out’ night-club stage for his 'pathetic’ variety turn. For me, Raging Bull is Scorsese’s ultimate masterpiece, as good an examination of physicality (and its decline) to ever reach the screen and, to boot, the finest 'sporting film’ ever – Taxi Driver, Mean Streets, King Of Comedy, Goodfellas, New York, New York (even) are all contenders but none quite attains the 'pure cinematic’ qualities of Raging Bull.

Not only is the film a compelling and visceral tale of a man’s battle with his inner demons (and questionable sanity) but it is (still, 35 years on) a mightily impressive technical achievement. Cinematographer Michael Chapman’s evocative black-and-white photography is stunning – whether it be the fast-cut, wide angle boxing ring shots, the steadicam, vérité-like sequences or the lingering, more intimate close-ups. Similarly, the film’s sound design (courtesy of Frank Warner) is like something straight out of Leone – with its echoing camera flashes and punches adding to the film’s sense of realism. Certainly, Scorsese does not hold back in terms of the brutality of his sporting focus – this is barbaric stuff (and, admittedly, rather exaggerated for effect) as LaMotta dishes out and (happily) takes vicious beatings ('He ain’t pretty no more’).
