the audience is not the winner here

The greatest boxing film of all time -- of many to choose from -- is Cinderella Man (2005). It is technically perfect, it remains exhilarating no matter how many times you watch it, it is on my IMDb list of great films, and it stars Russell Crowe. This boxing film also stars Russell Crowe. But the similarities end there. This film is an interesting experiment in combining a sports film with an historical biography ... to see how they mix? The result is entertaining, but in many places awkward and imbalanced. The moment the protagonist becomes champion, he immediately chooses a dark path. The viewer is disappointed. The moment the protagonist has a chance at redemption, the scriptwriter (who is also the star!) borrows every trope and trick you have ever seen in a Rocky film, and throws them onscreen. To see what sticks. Another disappointment. The pattern becomes clear. No matter how often Belcher wins, the audience always ends up the loser.

Entertaining biopic

Just watched this and enjoyed this biopic of prizefighter Jem Belcher ; not sure how historically accurate it actually is but was entertained throughout with the storyline and good fight sequences , well acted by all with as usual standout performances by Ray winstone and Russell Crowe and a good performance from the lead actor too , well worth seeing.

A great movie with outstanding music!

I really enjoyed 'Prizefighter'. The story and acting is incredible with great camera-work and cinematography. However, my favourite element of the whole movie was the music and score, especially the wonderfully reverby and atmospheric vocals. I feel the vocals add another depth and texture to the music and it really helps you become immersed in the story and become a part of 'Prizefighter's' world. The vocalist is very talented as well as the whole team involved with the score. I definitely recommend you watch!
