Grudge Match (2013)


Robert De Niro
Sylvester Stallone

Directed by Peter Segal

Here is a half and half movie, one half being funny at every turn and the other being clichés all the way, but I laughed all the way too.

Grudge Match is as stupid as the description, two old guys in their 60s decided to go one final round more in the ring to put an end to an old feud, where both had met twice and each one winning a bout.

As I said, it is as stupid as it sounds. Well there is more to the plot than the summary above, but that is just the main thing that the movie was about. The movie boasts of two popular actors who have previously played boxers in critical acclaim movies Robert De Niro in Raging Bull (1980) and Sylvester Stallone in Rocky (1976).

So like most of the people who went to see this move I only saw it because of what both of them represent to boxing movies, but regardless of the negative reviews I really did enjoy this movie, it was funny and silly.

The final bout when both took each other on was very annoying, it was not just working for me and I was more curious to see the fight end, than I was to see this old dudes all out of shape go at each other.
For me both of these guys should try laying back a little and let the young ones try out this boxing movies because it seems like there are no boxing movies that can stand toe to toe with Raging Bulland Rocky.

Will Smith’s Ali (2001) was not it at all to me, so let’s not even go there.

The screenplay (in Grudge Match) was as I said silly and Kevin Hart brought his A-game he was fun to see and he made me laugh any time he was the focus of a scene.

Grudge Match is a nice movie to loan and return back because it is not a masterpiece and Stallone did not really bring his A game into this one, it seems like De Niro just stole the show from the very get go.
The other sad thing about this movie is that Stallone has been nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Actor for this movie and along with his roles in Bullet to the Head (2013) and Escape Plan (2013).
Bullet to the Head was not it at all, but Escape Planwas a lot better, to me.
