Raging Bull Reviews

It has to be the best sports movie of all time.

You can tell that this is a Scorsese film through the sheer number of aggravated physical brawls (and not forgetting the no less aggressive verbal fights) which break out every 10 minutes or so, and that's not including any of actual boxing matches themselves. And that's this film's finest accomplishment in that Jake LaMotta isn't a nice guy (which is putting it lightly), and yet seeing him fail is no less painful. Predominantly this is a brilliantly well made, DeNiro I don't think has ever been better, and the use of score is some of the best in any movie.

I'm not fond of this film. It's uncomfortable and upsetting, but as a piece of film making virtuosity, it's incredible. It may be the best pure character study ever committed to film, and the rather detestable Jake LaMotta (as presented) is unsettlingly intriguing. Who said a character had to be likable, sympathetic or even relatable to be compelling. Might be De Niro's best performance. The fact that it's shot in black and white, when there's nothing black and white about it's characters is nicely ironic.

It is all about style , photograph and editing but no substance .

Whilst the final 25 minutes is arguably the crown jewel of Scorsese and DeNiro's partnership, Raging Bull is a plodding, dull experience. Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci's performances are powerful saviours, but Cathy Moriarty is the films weakest asset - emotionless delivery, less than a glimmer of chemistry with DeNiro, and resembling her 15 year old character as much as Scorsese does. Overall, Raging Bull is an admirable effort, but it barely raises a glass to Taxi Driver.

The best sport's movie of all time, the story of Jake LaMotta.

Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull follows the storyline of former boxing champion, Jake LaMotta. Although it's almost always categorized as a sports film, I find this classification very misleading. This film has little to do with the subject of boxing per se; it's more of a character study of the flawed, tormented and troubled boxer, Jake LaMotta, and about his inability to connect with other human beings and his 'penchant' for self-destruction. Paul Schrader and Mardik Martin's screenplay unflinchingly explores what drove this man over the edge and what eventually pulled him back. Scorsese has presented the audiences with the most powerful portrayal of jealousy ever put up on the big screen, reviving the golden age of cinema (at least for a while).
July 17, 2014
A powerful film with a powerful character at it's front. DeNiro deliver one of his best performances here when he portrays former middleweight champion Jake LaMotta. With it's breathtaking visuals and overall technique filled with some great backgrounds music, this movie really delivers, and do so without compassion or mercy, and is sometimes hard to watch.
February 18, 2013
Only Scorcesse and De Niro can make a boxing film about a complete prick fascinating.

One of Robert De Niro's best performances and one of Martin Scorsese's best movies. The fight scenes are some of the best ever put to film.
July 11, 2014
It's more accesible than Taxi Driver, but still, it's a really good film.
July 9, 2014
The story, acting and beautiful camera work are all near perfect. Wonderfully shot film with the only small drawback being the blood effects in here fights. Quite heavy handed, although that is mostly the films age showing. However could have been avoided somehow. Still an incredible and timeless story and performance by Robert De Niro
July 2, 2014
The strengths of the film revolve around the brutally realistic fight scenes! And what I consider to be Robert De Niro's role of a lifetime!
July 3, 2014
I was surprised by how boring this film is and how unlikeable the characters are.
July 2, 2014
This has been called the greatest American film of the 1980's, though I personally prefer De Palma's "Blow Out". It's still quite an achievement and there isn't a less than transcendent performance in the damn thing.

Simplemente genial...
June 30, 2014
Landmark performance for De Niro as a miserable boxer and Scorsese's talent behind the camera also makes it one his best pictures making 'Raging Bull' a brutal classic filled with blood, love and a man you want to hate but just can't.

Scorsese and De Niro managed to create a moving film despite a troubled production and an inflated budget. De Niro gives one of the greatest performances of all time and Joe Pesci also is fantastic as Jake and Joey La Motta, respectively. Scorsese's direction is especially good considering he was addicted to cocaine and had to be convinced by De Niro to even make the movie. Overall, a classic film. 9/10

Raging Bull is a film which talks about the consequences of one man's jealousy. Although he may have been a winner in the boxing ring, he was a loser at everything else. It's simple but extremely powerful. Robert DeNiro's performance as Jake La Motta is staggering, and Scorsese's ability to capture his life in film is mind boggling. People can argue that this might be the greatest American film ever made. There's not too much one can say to fight that argument
