5.0 out of 5 stars Superb action atmospheric drama A worthy 5 stars., 28 May 2013
This review is from: Cinderella Man [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Surprisingly this magnificent film did poorly at the box office,and costing 60 million dollars to make,barely made a profit.

Russell Crowe plays James Braddock the tough boxer down on his luck in the depression rid 1930s New York,incredibly well directed and acted,with Russell Crowe giving a superb underplayed portrayal of a nothing to loose everything to gain boxer.

The acting scene where he has to beg cap in hand for a meagre 19 dollars is particularly well done, as are the fight scenes.

Rene Zellwegger is good but not exceptional,and the whole depression era is handled extremely well.

Not since the Charles Bronson,James Coburn film "Hard Times" has a depression rid America seemed more real.

Why Stallones Rocky received academy awards,and this film did poorly is a mystery.

The James Braddock story is a true one,and the entire film is one that can be appreciated time and again,for the brilliant cinematography.

Like most people I missed this film when it was released in 2005, and I stayed up late until 1 am when it was televised on Film4.

The Rocky films are good,but Cinderella Man is by far the better film,with fight scenes to rival even Scorsese's Raging Bull.
