Audience Reviews for The Rocket
The Rocket is an incredible biopic about Maurice "Rocket" Richard, one of the greatest hockey players of the 1940's and 1950's. Quebec actor Roy Dupuis delivers a terrific performance as the legendary Hockey player, and the film chronicles Richard rise in the NHL to become the player he is now regarded as today. Considering that this a film from Quebec, it is a very well done film with terrific acting, a great story and directing. The film has been said that it's the best sports drama since Scorsese's Raging Bull. The Rocket may not be as masterful as Scorsese's film, but it's close. Given time, The Rocket might become a sports classic. Fans of Maurice Richard will definitely be pleased and Roy Dupuis as Maurice Richard is simply brilliant. The film does a great job at showing the hardships and successes of Maurice Richard. The Rocket is a surprising film, that I thought wouldn't deliver anything truly great, but I was very wrong. This one of the best sports dramas that I've seen and its a film that really does pay tribute to Maurice Richard. Theres really nothing I can type here, that has been said before, The Rocket shows the triumphs of Richard (winning The Stanley Cup with the Canadians) and so forth. The Rocket given time will probably find an audience, and I sure hope this film finds one bigger than the one it has right now. This is a unique sports film, very different from the other sports films out there. Great acting, and a great story make The Rocket one of the most memorable films that you can see about asports icon. Considering its a film about Maurice Richard, its a film that every hockey fan should see.
