Although the film's underdog themes have been done to much better effect in other films (even many boxing films,) the movie still manages to bring some emotionally-worthy scenes, thanks mostly to the skillful cast and director. Giamatti, of all the cast, seems to dig the deepest into his character and has some of the film's best moments.

Inspirational boxing biography. There's nothing new here, but it is a well made film.

This was an inspring story that kept my interest the whole time. I usually don't go for sports films, but the thing that made it different was the use of real hardships of history mixed in with the sports aspect. The drama was good as well because it wasn't the usual meaningless drama that is put into chick flicks. The acting was really good too. Russell Crowe was really cool and Paul Giamatti was hilarious. It was a worthwhile film.

This movie had a lot excellent qualities to it. But, I kinda thought that the whole "beaten man gets back up" theme was a bit overdone.

Another winner for Opie @ #39.

This is a truly great film. Russel Crowe, Rene Zellweger and Paul Giametti were all fabulous. Russell Crowe is one of the best actors of our time. I am not a boxing fan, but I was so engrossed by the character of the Cinderalla Man that I was totally involved in every punch. I didn't know how the story would end, so I had the added thrill of suspense during the final fight. The story of a family in the midst of the Great Depression was as compelling as the boxing story. The solid family man played by Russell gives us a much needed role model. The historical and socio-economic background was powerfully shown and greatly added to the audience's involvement and is particularly relevant to today. The direction by Ron Howard gave this movie an Epic feel. This is a classic film.
