What makes the film work at all is Schreiber, one of those actors who is watchable doing just about anything, even if he does it in an ugly pornstache and an uglier plaid overcoat.

It may not go the distance, but it's surely worth a step into the ring.

Liev Schreiber is top-notch in the lead role in this funny, sad and warm cautionary tale.

The downfall isn't as satisfying as the setup, and a sudden burst of energy associated with the introduction of cocaine actually acts to slow things down, but it's worth seeing for the performances.

Liev Schreiber is outstanding as the hulking, rough-edged, amiable and charismatic Wepner.

...driven by a knockout lead performance from Liev Schreiber.

There are lessons to be learned and we do so with [Chuck] while enjoying the chaos for laughs.

... if you like little oddball slices of (mostly) forgotten history and don't mind a shaggy story, this is a smallish, fun movie.

From a general outline, the story here is fascinating and worth telling (especially on the big screen), but the journey of Chuck is full of bumps, bruises, and bleeding

Schreiber is outstanding as the title character, but he also has a great supporting cast.

The acting saves Chuck from being just the umpteenth white boxer biopic, but we're fast approaching the copy-of-a-copy-of-a-copy stage of this genre.

So, a reserved endorsement for Chuck. Like its main character, the movie stumbles and lumbers, but manages to survive.

Chuck is a good movie about a noteworthy boxer because it shows his equally, if not more difficult battles out of the ring.

If there's any justice, Schreiber will find himself in next year's Best Actor race for his performance here, as he completely inhabits the role.
August 11, 2017
Chuck is an interesting character study, and thanks to Schreiber's self-deprecating narration and blunt confessionals, we feel for Wepner and his struggles.
June 2, 2017
Yet you root for this movie the same way you might have rooted for Wepner. It's not a contender by any stretch of the imagination, but it has a certain tough, hard-earned nobility.
May 30, 2017
Chuck is a more than a worthwhile footnote to the continuing cultural significance still enjoyed by Rocky.
May 28, 2017
Chuck is a grueling, empathetic portrait of real-life heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner.

Moss and Schreiber produce what may be the best performances of their careers to make this film work.

Chuck takes a lot of punches, but it lands some good ones, too.
