a boxing movie that's about much more than boxing
1 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this is a really good movie about boxer Rocky Marciano.it chronicles his rise to greatness in the sport.but more than that,it chronicles his and his family's struggle to overcome adversity and prejudice.the film shows Marciano as a (at most times)humble man who longs to escape the dead end path he is on,with a bleak future and a menial job in which he is fated to merely eke out an existence.the movie is low key and doesn't not put boxing on a pedestal,but rather shows that that their are people behind those gloves and bruises.it also shows the despicable people behind the scenes(slimy managers and promoters,etc) and the udder depths they will stoop to in order to keep their fighters under their thumbs.Jon Favreau puts in a terrific performance as the title character,while both Judd Hirsch and Tony Lo Bianca both portray(very convincingly)a scumbag manager and an even scummier promoter,respectively George C.Scott plays Marciano's father,whose fate in life Marciano hopes to escape from.this is obviously not a documentary,so there is probably some liberty taken by the filmmakers.but i'm sure a lot of the movie was accurate,especially about the scumbags behind the scenes.in fact,we have one high profile one in the real life boxing world,though haven't heard too much from him lately.we all know who he is and that he's nothing but a waste of skin.anyway,i feel this is a movie that most people,even non boxing fans will enjoy and relate to.for me "Rocky Marciano" is a 9/10
