The final justification that Russell Crowe is without a doubt one of the best actors to come along in years.

April 29, 2009

A very solid cast, one of the most reliable directors in Hollywood, and one of the most malleable subjects in film make Cinderella Man one of the best films of 2005 thus far.

Cinderella Man plays like a movie actively hunting for awards. But it's also a pretty darn good story.

Handsome, manipulative, simplistic. It packs an uplift that bludgeons you into submission.

Howard's movie skillfully delivers that primal, heart-pounding satisfaction that is the promise of all boxing tales.

Cinderella Man is a contender, but it's not exactly a knockout.

Princeton Town Topics

A cross between Seabiscuit (because of the Depression) and Rocky (because of the sport), yet a fine enough film to stand on its own, even if the production falls short of both in terms of its emotional punch.

A fine alternative to the louder and more brainless summer movies competing with it -- an excellent drama that relies on heart and action instead of schmaltz and melodrama.

The fight scenes have a stinging authenticity and, although at 144 minutes it outstays its welcome, this is Howard's best film since Apollo 13

Emanuel Levy

Stirring and inspirational in the best and worst senses of these terms, this fact-based melodrama is stamped by the middlebrow sensibility of both director Ron Howard and writer Akiva Goldsman.

I have never rooted for a sporting event in my life like I rooted for Braddock. I was on the edge of my couch, balled fists on my knees, praying he would prevail...superbly edited, beautifully shot, sensitively acted, and with fantastic grit and texture

Es un cuento de hadas necesario para el cinéfilo que tiene que padecer películas pretenciosas o agresivas. El mundo necesita héroes, aunque sean de celuloide.

The boxing sequences here are better than those of Martin Scorsese's bar-setting "Raging Bull."
