Grudge Match Reviews

Cinephiled

"(Not only) is this sports comedy poorly timed, it has more than just a whiff of desperation, both on the part of its remaining cast and the filmmaker."

Grudge Match certainly has enough successful elements to be moderately entertaining, although it's hard not to wish it contained fewer distractions.

If you're from my generation, it's worth checking out for the nostalgia factor, even if much of the film will be lost on the younger generation.

I do have to marvel at the way Stallone has always been able to make himself the underdog. This is a massive monster of a man who should by any account be the Goliath to any movie's David, yet he's always able to play vulnerable.

Grudge Match is one of those ideas that works as a passing joke rather than an actual film, but the film's brazenness is admirable, and it is possible to have a good time with it. Just make sure your expectations are suitably lowered first.

This film is clearly designed as a comedy as opposed to a drama. A few jokes will put a smile on your face but there's not enough to warrant a "must see" recommendation.

The Vine

Two old guys get into the ring and start punching each other. Whoever the winner is, it sure ain't cinema.

It's wise not to underestimate the sheer guilt-plated fun of watching these two old pros from different sides of the acting spectrum verbally and physically spar with one another while hauling their geriatric carcasses around a ring.

The Australian

Working from a cobbled-together screenplay by Tim Kelleher and Rodney Rothman, director Peter Segal pretty much goes through the motions.

Herald Sun (Australia)

Stallone and De Niro are burning up what goodwill they have remaining with their respective followings for the sake of an easy payday.

February 6, 2014

Imagine the stars of Rocky and Raging Bull squaring off in a boxing comedy about two old rivals of the ring out for payback. That's about all you need to know about this by-the-numbers, computer-written laughfest.

Although it pretty much just revels in its own crapulence, I enjoyed Grudge Match.

Ageing Bull versus Rocky Glaucoma? Has somebody knocked me silly? Or am I really watching 70 year old Robert De Niro bashing 67 year old Sylvester Stallone in the boxing ring? Is this a joke?

Observer [UK]

Umpteen rounds of flabby, lacklustre "dramedy" that was probably much more fun on paper.

The Sunday Age

Although it seeks to send up their greatest on-screen achievements, this half-baked farce merely reinforces the idea that De Niro and Stallone have seen better days.

So, yes, Grudge Match is an act of cultural vandalism. But, as sacrilege goes, it's reasonably diverting.

If you like gags about decrepitude, Segal's bought in the motherload.

Not really a boxing movie for boxing aficionados, but there is a ghastly fascination for these 60 somethings behaving like 30 somethings and looking like weird somethings, each in their own way

Urban Cinefile

It's low on laughs and tries too hard, but the fact De Niro and Stallone are back in the ring giving it their best shot brings veteran entertainment value. The problem lies with the shallow, lack-lustre script

Grudge Match is like a lumbering old heavyweight, it's every body jab parried, every right hook deflected.
