Pretty amazing movie, I would recommend it to everyone. Russel Crowe's acting was rediculous, I have never seen him better. He said more with a look than 100 words. Renee Zellweger was perfect also. I was really surprised that I would like it this much, there have been a lot of fight movies. The buildup is done so well you would have to be heartless to not be rooting for Jim Braddock. It might also help a number of people get a grip to see the amount of suffering that was real to our Grandparents and Parents, that was real tough times. I didn't see it at the theater so I don't know if the crowd was out of their seats during the boxing, Rocky did that to people. The boxing cinematography was also excellent. And it was a true story! RENT IT!
