(ca) wrote: The trouble with true stories is you can research it prior to watching, OR, you remember it. I remembered the Pasmanian devil. This is back before MMA and when boxing was big time. Miles Teller is an excellent young actor and does a fine job here. He may play Vinny a bit too sweet. My memories are of a brash, egotistical fighter. Anyway, a good movie, but not one for the whole family.

(ag) wrote: It is not exactly a horror film. It's more like a psychological thriller. I did enjoy the over-the-top performances because it's the only thing it has going for it. The story is very mysterious to the point of excess, which made me not care what happened to the characters in the end; the tone of it, though very versatile, felt forced at times; and none of the characters are relatable. Don't even get me started with the political implications. Still, I like the film a bit because, most of the time, we are in one room observing three people or less interact. The film does not offer easy answers to our questions. I personally think it would have elevated the film if they did. Still, this is not a bad movie. It's just very in-your-face and unintentionally comedic.

(ru) wrote: A well written and well acted drama. Both Firth and Kidman gave masterful performances. However, the entire plot line builds towards revenge and as it reaches its climax, forgiveness is concluded. A very unsatisfactory way to end a movie.
