Renee Zellweger is amazing as always in this and I want to see her in more things right now. Paul Giamatti is great too. Crowe is ok

What a great movie. I'm about 9 years late in seeing this......so good. Such a well done movie. I absolutely love historical dramas and this is right up there with some of the best. Great, great movie.

We watched this movie I our American History class. It was amazing!!!! We love it so much. Every time we would start where we left off from we would get into the movie so much, we got mad when the bell would ring. the last spot we left off in the movie was right before the big fight against Max Baer. I can't wait to see the rest of this movie!! We have to wait two weeks to see the ending because we are on Christmas break. NO SPOILERS PLEASE!!!!! :)

Russel Crowe depicts the story of real life boxer from the great depression era James Braddock. The movie outlines his struggles to raise his family, and well as comeback from his injuries to revive his boxing career. Crowe acted well in this Cinderella/underdog story, but the film really does not throw any unexpected punches either.

Ein guter und emotionaler Film, um einen Underdog bis zur Spitze schafft! Und das noch nach wahrer Begebenheit. Diese Geschichte erinnert schon ein bisschen nach Rocky, mit Sylvester Stallone. Auch gut besetzt mit Russell Crowe und Renee Zellweger. Sehr tiefgründig in Szene gesetzt und mit guter Musik untermalt. Nur leider hat es zwischen durch einige Passagen, die etwas stocken, im Verlauf der Geschichte. Ein gutes Boxerdrama mit einigen Schwächen!

Howard does a wonderful job of capturing the tone of the era in a way that still resonates today; paramount to the inspirational story of James Braddock.

One of the most memorable sports dramas of all time, Cinderella Man benefits from amazing performances, an awesome script, and a legendary true story.

Tries too much to pay homage to Rocky

Cinderella Man is a heartfelt story following a man's quest to provide for his family whilst simultaneously rising to stardom. Unfortunately, while the movie retains aspects of film that I try to appreciate, I find myself drifting in and out of it, and even though it possesses undeniable effort and talent, boxing just doesn't stimulate me like a majority of the other people that I can envy for being able to appreciate it. It might not be my type of movie, but I can still say that Cinderella Man provides a great story of how one man can make a huge difference.

Predictable but done with effortless skill by the great Ron Howard.

If u have ever risen against all odds after losing everything in your life,then u will surely appreciate the beauty of the film and love that 'cinderella man'.

An inspiring underdog story at it's finest, Crowe is once again in his element as a believable ageing athlete who fights against the odds.

This film was too long and too much of it was brutal fighting that glorified a "sport" that makes 20th century Americans as violence frenzied as any crowd in ancient Rome watching gladiators kill each other. Crowe seems to like this kind of role, but at least in Gladiator there was a point to the violence--a fight against an insanely corrupt tyrant. Here there is no great struggle to win against injustice. If you want a better movie about the Depression and a sports' figure inspiring the dispirited downtrodden, how about Sea Biscuit? It's a much better movie and the only violence is accidental. Nobody is trying to do as much harm to someone as they can or boasting that they will kill them.

Howard (Cinderella man 2005 & Rush 2013) is an excellent director of athlete/action biographies but there was some room for improvement here, especially when he choose Zellweger.

Pure and simply, this movie has it all. Superb acting and writing, heart, action, and a fantastic score. The villain is a little over the top, but other than that, incredible film. Seriously, just go watch it.
