It just wasn't the style I liked....
24 September 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I recently saw "Cinderella Man" and enjoyed it. But I also knew that HUGE liberties were taken with the story. In other words, it was BASED on a true story...but many, many things were changed for the film.

When I put the DVD in the machine and pressed the PLAY button, I came to HATE the folks who made this DVD. That's because unlike any other DVD I've ever seen, this one begins with a &$^#ing commercial--making you watch some promo for a film about Roger Bannister!! While I love many of the ESPN films, I truly despise the idiot that did this. I do NOT expect to be forced to see an ad when I press the PLAY button on the Main Menu Screen!! I HATE THIS and curse the person or persons responsible! I thought this film was simply a biography of the real James Braddock. However, I was surprised to see that it consisted of re-creations of the career of Braddock--with actors playing the parts of the various characters--and lots of very fancy camera-work. I actually would have preferred a straight documentary since I'd seen the movie. I also would have preferred it if they hadn't used the 'unsteady cam'--i.e., the constantly moving camera that deliberately avoided staying in one spot. This is a recent technique that makes me feel seasick! The bottom line is that you'll love this film if you like the style. I didn't and just wanted the facts. To each his own. Maybe next time I'll just read Wikipedia.
