Becky and I went to see the new movie Southpaw at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock. The Fandango website describes the movie as follows…
“Jake Gyllenhaal stars as troubled boxer Billy Hope in this high-stakes drama from director Antoine Fuqua and Sons of Anarachy creator Kurt Sutter. At the height of his fame and success, Hope is convinced by his loving wife Maureen (Rachel McAdams) to retire from the sport in order to spend more time with the couple’s daughter Leila (Oona Laurence)…”
The Review: I was thinking that a boxing film was probably going to suck, but the acting in this movie was really great. Jake is probably going to win an award for his role in this movie and it was really well Directed. In fact, this is one of the best movies we have seen in quite awhile with plenty of action and drama with a really good storyline. The movie portrays the life of a boxer, who goes from a rags to riches life to having his world ripped out from under him and how he must overcome his emotions. He has to battle back against numerous odds that are against him and decide what people he is going to trust and let back into his life.
The language is rough, so be prepared for that when you see it and it is violent as a boxing film. It also shows the dangers of gun violence when ignorant people make bad choices with weapons. This is a movie that will pull at your heart strings and it is a movie with characters that have plenty of heart. We both thought it was definitely a Don’t Miss It and would recommend seeing it for sure. We really enjoyed this movie and it was really well done.
