'Hands of' Sourdough

'Hands of Stone' is the biography of boxing legend Roberto Duran. At it's center, this film wants to be a tribute to the man, showcasing the trade and true 'rise-fall-rise again' plot seen in many sports films. The problem here is that it's essential plot lacks any emotion or driving force. I never once rallied behind this guy wanting his success. That's not attributed to the acting. Edgar Ramirez proves his talents in the lead role, and De Niro does the wise mentor schtick quite well. The problem lies in the storytelling. This film wants to be both a crowd pleasing boxing film and an encompassing biopic of the subject person, while also touching on political issues of the time to feed into the main characters ideologies and goals. What we are left with is a massive amount of plot...
