“It isn’t attempting to reinvent any wheels, but it is consistently gripping, slick as a skip rope and just one hell of a story.”~The Film Stage

Aroview: The real life inspiration for Rocky Balboa, Chuck Wepner was a New Jersey liquor salesman with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on Muhammad Ali in a highly publicized title match. His wild ride of sudden fame and its sobering aftermath is keenly depicted through a committed performance from Liev Schreiber.
