Two aging boxing rivals are coaxed out of retirement to fight one final match, 30 years after their last showdown.
Finally we see Rocky vs. Raging Bull. I thought this movie was a gimmick and I was grudgingly watching Grudge Match but surprisingly I fell in love with this film.
The story sounds lame on paper but the mazing chemistry between Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone and Kevin Heart is outstanding. Robert De Nero and Sylvester Stallone play the same classic characters we are used to seeing but it’s not a bad thing in this film. I’m not a big fan of Kevin Heart but this he’s is funny in this movie and made me rethink liking him. Alan Arkin who plays Sylvester Stallone trainer and he made laugh really hard and makes this movie. I’m a sucker for cameos and this one has some like LL Cool J and two at the end I don’t want to spoil for you. Grudge Match has some good laughs and chuckles. There are all old man jokes which do get repetitive but they are still funny.
The story of grudge match is entertaining with a complex back story which connects to the 3 main characters but there is a lot going on. The end boxing scene is not a letdown but it is predictable.
Grudge Match cast chemistry connects to this entertaining joke filled story. It doesn’t break new ground and it is a bit forgettable but with the two legendary actors Robert De Nero and Sylvester Stallone make this movie a good watch. Cheers and remember life won’t suck as long as there is a good movie to watch
