Movie Info

He was the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey, a man who went fifteen rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali, and the real life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck Wepner (Liev Schreiber) was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicized title match. It's the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame-but what happens when your fifteen minutes in the spotlight are up? Driven by a committed performance from Liev Schreiber, Chuck is a refreshingly human tale of resilience and redemption. Elisabeth Moss and Naomi Watts costar.

Its familiarity feels less like the ineffectual repetition of platitudes ... and more like bumping into a pal you haven't seen in a while.

The Playlist

The Bleeder is a surface-value, party-first boxing dramedy that pulls its punches and goes too far into "charismatic sleazeball" territories.

We Got This Covered

Schreiber is so good you wish he'd lead more films, while Moss is fiery as always, owning her thick Jersey accent like nobody's business. Matching them is Schreiber's real-life partner Naomi Watts ...
