Format: DVD
"Cinderella Man" is the story of a down-on-his-luck guy who makes an incredible boxing comeback and wins the world title during the Depression. What sets this apart from other underdog boxing films is the endearing and passionate performance of Russell Crowe.

Russell Crowe is utterly convincing as Jim Braddock; his face is craggy and lined, his tired eyes reflect desperation, fear, and hope. He is as comfortable in the brutal boxing scenes as he is in the tender moments he shares with Renee Zellweger, who plays Jim's wife, Mae. The sentimentality never becomes maudlin, and we come to like and admire Jim for the love he has for his family and his determination to do whatever he has to do to support them.

Two scenes define Braddock even more than the boxing matches: The first is when he is reduced to begging, hat in hand, from his former associates. The second is when Jim goes to the relief office and repays the money he had been given. These scenes show he was a man of intense pride and inner strength. "Cinderella Man" is an inspiring movie.

After seeing this movie I have a whole new respect for Russell Crowe as an actor, as well as for Rene Zellweger's unlimited talent to play just about any character. Russell Crowe gave an exemplary performance as Jim Braddock, and obviously put quite a lot of work into making his boxing look believable, even immitating Braddock's style. Paul Giamatti, who plays the boxer's coach, really hit the nail with this one as well, in his energetic, cheeky portrayal of the real Joe Gould. In this movie about a struggling boxer during the Depression, you find hope and courage as the character struggles against all odds. It's essentially a 'triumph of the underdog' kind of movie, being less about boxing than it is about miracles. All the actors possess depth and character that keeps you there with them while you hope for the best in their circumstances. The movie is excellent in keeping a tight, exciting, and emotional storyline alive throughout. A true story, with Ron Howard's flair for directing.

Apparently Jim Braddock's family sat around the ring watching the filming of some of the scenes, and testified to Crowe's talent for his portrayal. Jim Braddock's grandaughter is in the movie as well, playing Braddock's friend's wife, Sara Wilson. All in all a must see, even if you don't like boxing (which I don't).

In did not know at the time of ordering it, it was a movie about boxing. I dislike any form of violence. I do enjoy Russell Crowe though
and generally the movie was OK.
