Critic Reviews for Rocky Marciano
Jon Favreau's charismatic and convincing performance as the boxing legend is enough to recommend this biopic.
Rocky Marciano was a knockout of a fighter to say the least. It's too bad Winkler's movie about him carries no particular punch
Audience Reviews for Rocky Marciano
Very enjoyable low-budget biopic that bounces back and forth between telling the story of his boxing career and a sub-plot involving the Rock in his retirement years.. With abrasive moments as well as touching ones, this movie definitely gives the Brockton Blockbuster a good deal of justice. Favreau portrays all of Marciano's highs and lows, from his nearly killing a man in the ring, to the war with the legendary Joe Louis, in a very sincere fashion.. Rocky Marciano will forever be undefeated, but his tale was a bittersweet one and this movie does a good a job as any at capturing that. Definitely worth the watch if you have an hour and a half to kill..
Superficial overview of the champ's life.

It was just missing something .... Maybe it was just too much made for tv and not enough Hollywood? It was just too tame. Ironically, there wasn't enough Rocky (Stallone) in it. Maybe it's that I don't really care for any of the actors in it? I'm not really a fan of Jon Favreau or Penelope Ann Miller. It was a movie worth watching, but definitely not a KO.
