Schreiber is outstanding as the title character, but he also has a great supporting cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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.

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.

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 86/100

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Chuck takes a lot of punches, but it lands some good ones, too.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 25, 2017
We don't need another formulaic boxing biopic. Good thing Chuck TKOs the genre mold.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Like Wepner's favorite movie, Chuck is a requiem for a heavyweight, a palooka with nothing left but pride.

The former New Jersey butcher-turned liquor salesman had a story to tell, and Falardeau has no problem putting it up on screen, warts and all.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

With the old patina of 1970s films, and the inclusion of archival images, Philippe Falardeau's film has the fresh and dynamic style of the genre. [Full review in Spanish]

Chuck, the film, is a lot like Chuck, the man, decently charming and mostly harmless.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
May 19, 2017
It's a little bit pathetic, but Schreiber crafts such an innocence in his character that it's easy to root for him. And to remember him.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 19, 2017
A slick, entertainingly silly movie that owes more to "Goon" than "Raging Bull."

Watching "Chuck" is like striking up a conversation with a stranger on the barstool next to you, and discovering that your new drinking buddy is a far more interesting fellow than he first appeared.
