A serious incisive drama that pulls no punches in its low-keyed exposure of its pitiable has been hero and the sleazy, harried sidekicks who share his sweat-stained and blood-stained world.

It still packs considerable punch as a character study, although its action has slowed to where the plot padding is often obvious.

The screenplay is as tight as a right hook from Cassius Clay (who, incidentally, appears here as himself two years before becoming Muhammad Ali) and drives effortlessly toward its somber, heartbreaking conclusion.

An all-time classic with Quinn giving one of the finest portrayals of his career. Gleason and Mickey Rooney are great in support.

A bittersweet drama about a burnt-out boxer who stumbles into the future following the dictates of his heart.

Apesar das boas atuações de Rooney e Gleason, o filme apela demais para o melodrama e acaba soando de maneira excessivamente artificial - e a caricatural performance de Quinn não colabora muito para evitar isso.
| Original Score: 2/5
