I have never rooted for a sporting event in my life like I rooted for Braddock. I was on the edge of my couch, balled fists on my knees, praying he would prevail...superbly edited, beautifully shot, sensitively acted, and with fantastic grit and texture

Es un cuento de hadas necesario para el cinéfilo que tiene que padecer películas pretenciosas o agresivas. El mundo necesita héroes, aunque sean de celuloide.

No ofrece nada nuevo y, a pesar de su impecable factura técnica, aburre hasta la exasperación con su mezcla de previsibilidad y cursilería.

October 7, 2005
The boxing sequences here are better than those of Martin Scorsese's bar-setting "Raging Bull."
September 26, 2005
A superficially rousing portrait of Depression-era legend James J. Braddock.
September 18, 2005
Intensely moving and superbly crafted....Russell Crowe's portrayal of boxer James Braddock, is nothing short of brilliant..
September 14, 2005
The joy is in the playing, and Ron Howard pulls out all the stops like the organist at the old Madison Square Garden.

Nada mais é do que um repeteco de Alma de Herói, apenas substituindo o cavalo Seabiscuit por James J. Braddock.

It's Seabiscuit with fists. Enjoyable, well-made, heartwarming Best Picture fodder that overcomes its achingly predictable story thanks to Oscar-worthy performances from Crowe and Giamatti.

Slick and rousing entertainment it may be, but Cinderella Man is far from great cinema.

Crowe is at his best in the ring and while it's hardly surprising that he's a convincing bruiser, he also manages to make a rather one-note character compelling.

Comparisons to Eastwood's Oscar-winning "Million Dollar Baby" are not only expected but welcomed, since "Cinderella Man" is (surprisingly) just as good.

July 16, 2005
Though the film is technically first-rate, it's little more than a theme-park version of the Depression with a hero with less personality than the equine star of Seabiscuit.

El hombre detrás de la leyenda, el caballero detrás de la bestia, el miserable y hambreado detrás del campeón. Sublime.

Crowe goes against type in rendering Braddock as a man full of humility and generosity.

The changes made to Baer's personality simply strike me as unnecessary here, not to mention poor filmmaking.

I couldn't find enough superlatives to describe "Cinderella Man," an astonishing film that's simply perfect.
