Only the first two minutes and a half worth; afterwards, there is just a ridiculous fight scene!
21 February 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The very first scene (let me say: the first 2 minutes and 30 seconds) is great and raised expectations that the film would be a precious gem. Though, it is not. The following fight scene is ridiculous: bad acting, not credible (the boxers don't look tired or injured, the way the girl communicate with Baer is improbable), and shows fake facts (Schmmeling was German and Nazis did use his victories, but he would never say 'heil, Hitler' to a Jewish contender, as his coach was a Jew, besides the fact that he has always been respectful to black Joe Louis). Off course that historic fight is a great story and it is natural that a Jewish director wants to make a film of it. Though, making a caricature is not the right way. Instead of creating an unreal villain to fight Max Baer, it would be better to keep the environment of the beginning and show the importance for the Jews of defeating the boxer whose victories were used by Nazi regime as propaganda.
