Musings:
I can not say I care a lot for boxing. It's a stupid sport really, people beating each other senseless. And I had never heard of this guy either, but why would I? I am not a boxing fan.

So I can't say I thought I would enjoy it, but then again the boxing movies I have watched, well for some reason I always continue to watch. They are interesting. And in this one they guy really made a comeback. From a horrible accident to fighting again. Yes I wanted to google to see how it would end but I did my best to stop myself.

Teller did a good job too, and I would not even have recognized Eckhart if bf had not wondered if it was him.

So yes it was an interesting movie.

  2. I remember when this came out. Forgot to watch it though lol

    I'm not a fan of boxing either but this seems like more than a "boxing" movie.

    I liked Creed too.

  4. I'm not a big watcher of sports biopics, but I like how inspiring and feel-good many of them are.
