Against the Ropes Reviews
Meg Ryan tries to halt her career from being KO'd, but it doesn't work in this predicatble time waster.
Ryan plays legendary female boxing promoter Jackie Kallen. It follows her as she battles the man's world of boxing promoting as she pushes her own boxer to the top.
Fair at best.
I expexted more from Meg Ryan, it feels like she have lost the touch of acting, I wish she was "stronger" and more expressfully, which I know she can. One of my favorites with Meg is "City of angles".
I didn't really get the ending of this movie.
I LOVE the leather cloth Meg used several times during this movie, it fitted well on her :))
although it isnt original its not a terrible movie and is quite a good movie, it kept me entertained and interested in the movie and i thought it was pretty interesting.
I enjoyed the story and its based on real events as well and i enjoyed the acting and writting of the script i think the movie showed how men are predujice and sexist when a women does a supposed male job that no women should do, and i think it projected that across brilliantly i really enjoyed the movie.
Meg Ryan is brilliant and so is omar epps i love tony shalhoub in this hes brilliant as the horrible trainer businessman.
Meg Ryan pays a women whose bossed about and finally gets the chances to take on a fighter for boxing but she takes a risk with an unsuspeciting surprise that turns to be a huge bonus, but will the fame get to her and will she continue to have the fighters best interests at heart?
Funny in places and keeps you entertained and a real good emotional journey through the life of a women who gets everything good movie!
Her story proves that women can be just as good as men... if not better!
She accomplished something that we should all strive for... excellence!
