Plot – A boxer fights his way to the top, only to find his life falling apart around him.
Release Date: 31st July 2015
- Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler)
- Rachel McAdams (Wedding Crashers)
- Forest Whitaker (Last King of Scotland)
Director: Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer)
Highlight of the Trailer: The fights look very realistic.
What Looks Good? Gyllenhaal’s performance.
What Looks Bad? We have seen this idea before.
Summary: As I am not a big fan of boxing I will be more interested in seeing how the serious side of the story is handled. I think it would be fair to believe the Oscar buzz around this film and is it possible for Gyllenhaal to give a better performance than Nightcrawler.
