It would’ve been a great family movie yet…
The story rolls out in just the right pace, keeping the focus to live up to the title, making the viewers assume the good things. Yet the twist comes and crashes all expectations. I like how the plot diverts the viewers’ expectations from anticipating something good into getting curious about what will happen next. Yet the twist comes in a less surprising manner that it doesn’t really depict the big disaster impacted on Erik’s character. I like how the later parts of the movie where Erik reconciles his relationship with his son. Despite the child depicted here is a kid, the scenes will serve as a good educational material for teens and older children in the matters of trust and family relations. Although I must also say that the family content doesn’t really focus up until near the end of the movie. Josh Hartnett acted just an average performance here in my opinion. Yet I like how Samuel L. Jackson get into character, making up the voice for the homeless champ. Kathryn Morris and Dakota Goyo did a nice job in giving the live on the family scenes that this movie critically needed.
Resurrecting the Champ is amazing!!!!!!!
I just got home from the world premiere of Resurrecting the Champ at the Sundance Film Festival. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. The first half of the movie is mostly focused on Erik (Josh Hartnett) getting to know more about Champ (Samuel L. Jackson), a homeless man, who was formerly a well known pro boxer, for a news paper article. In a turn of events toward the end of the movie, Erik winds up having more in common with Champ’s struggle in life as a child with his father and then as a father toward his son, than he thought he ever would. Erik has to re-evaluate his own relationship with his son, wife, and recently deceased father, and rectify some mistakes that were made in the past with each one of them. Everything ties together so beautifully at the end of the movie, it is very touching. The film has the perfect blend of humor, and seriousness. The casting was perfect for this movie from top to bottom and all of the acting is wonderful. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this movie does very well in theaters and also wins some big time awards. People who enjoy sports movies will love this, but there’s much more depth to the movie than just that, so it’s okay if your not the sports type. The deepest messages and themes of this movie have nothing to do with sports, and are centered more on making good decisions in life, and accepting that we’re all going through life imperfectly. Go see it as soon as humanly possible!
