The promos to this film led you to believe that this was a spoof of the boxing genre. Despite some throwaway gags involving raw egg consumption and punching slabs of meat this is a pretty straightforward drama with comic overtones about two geriatric pugs with a score to settle. The film is somewhat formulaic but if you give in to its charms you will enjoy it immensely. The actors are uniformly excellent and Sylvester Stallone more than stands his own with Robert De Niro. If you saw Stallone in Walter Hill's "Bullet to the Head" you will appreciate the rebirth of the Stallion in his golden years Good supporting cast includes Kim Basinger as the love interest and Kevin Hart as the promoter for the proposed bout between the adversaries. Minor quibble is Alan Arkin may be a little young to play Stallone's father but his comic presence is always welcome

Second time around, I liked it!

Stallone and De Niro doing comedy. It really is an exhibition match on the script and figuratively on screen. I remember being indifferent to the movie when I saw it years back, but you know what? It’s not a bad movie overall! It all depends who you’re watching with, just like a lot of movies. I had a couple good laughs watching it again though.

Also, mine came with a digital code that still worked! Much appreciated!

You will enjoy the same story and 1980's drama that the Rocky series brought you but honestly, it is time for even the most popular actors to move into the 21st century and realize, that making sequel-like productions to films that "wow-ed" the audience over 30 years ago, isn't going to bring them the same results, respect or recognition in today's day and age. I say that with all due respect to the past but big names and faces don't sell tickets anymore because of films like this. It's a semi-enjoyable one-time see with an okay story and a good final fight but it definitely won't be making its way into your dvd player a second time around. You'll see...

If you have the Heart of the Champion you will like this movie
Verified purchase
I am writing this because I'm getting tired of people saying how terrible this movie is. If you have ever competed for anything in your life, this movie is excellent because it speaks to what it means to have a heart of a champion. The assumption most people make is that once you get older, you have nothing to offer and this movie offers the opinion that once you are a winner, once you are a contender, it doesn't matter how old you get that heart still beats in you. It's a unique perspective and in my opinion a valuable one. What I like most about the movie is the fact that both characters win in the way that they need too in order for their to have been character growth.

Most of all it's Rocky Vs Raging Bull, how can you hate that?

Good movie, worth your time.

Enjoy it for what is
Verified purchase
This movie is really just another recap of Stallone Rocky franchise, with cameo of long forgotten scenes (with aged Stallone). The movie never pretends to be anything more than that, which you should know from the posters. Accepting it for what it is makes more enjoyable. The story is pretty predictable, but again this movie is for the old quotes. The entire "Rocky" environment is reminiscent of his first "Rocky" movie: old house in run-down neighborhood, no TV, and a rotary phone (a relic).

The movie is funny in a sense of old dogs still kicking it but said at the same time as you see your childhood buff heroes grow old and saggy with age. A true realization that aging is all but inevitable.

Okay movie that started good but then went downhill
Verified purchase
This movie started out pretty decent but then it turned into a sleeper during the middle and the end was sort of boring too. Imo it looks like the writer had some pretty good ideas on how the movie was going to play out and there was some fun comedic friction between the two main characters but then Peter Segal ran out of material and the movie just fizzled. Okay flick to watch for background noise or during a nap. That is about as good as this one is going to get.

Stallone and DeNiro...
Verified purchase
need I say more? You know what you're going to get with this movie, and it delivers it perfectly. I actually went into it thinking I would like it based on the previews and the fact that I love both Stallone and DeNiro, and I liked it even better than I thought I would. A well written, well acted, and over very fun movie that I and my entire family (kids and all) enjoyed. Stallone is having a fantastic late career resurgence (Rocky Balboa, Rambo, Escape Plan, Expendables series) and this film is no exception. I saw it at the movie theater and bought it to watch whenever I want to at home. Highly recommended!

Not the best movie with a great cast
Verified purchase
Grudge Match is fair. I thought this movie was going to be really good and funny, but sadly it's not all that it's cracked up to be unfortunately. The previews you saw on t.v. when this movie was being promoted were pretty much all the good scenes. I found the acting to be pretty dry alongside the story. I will watch the movie again to see if it's any better the second time around, but I'm very doubtful. I love Stallone and De Niro, but this movie was probably one of their worst. I would recommend you rent or borrow this before buying it.
