grudge_matchReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 4/10/14] | Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]
  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: La reunión de dos leyendas del ring cinematográfico no tiene mucho fuelle, chicha ni emoción, más cerca de un melodrama telefílmico que de un largometraje a tener verdaderamente en cuenta. Más allá de lo icónico del asunto, poco que destacar.
  • Edwin Arnaudin @ Ashvegas
    • Excerpt: This empty redemption tale is little more than Last Vegas with fitness “jokes,” a combination that, in a just world, would inspire a class action lawsuit from the AARP.
  • Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: The film offers few surprises, but anyone enjoying Stallone’s late career should find it plenty entertaining. The actor’s own recent revisiting of his most famous character, “Rocky Balboa,” was a far better movie than this one, but as a comedic take, “Grudge Match” mostly lands its punches.
  • Phil Concannon @ Phil on Film
  • Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: …doesn’t know whether it wants to be a GRUMPY OLD MEN-style comedy set in the boxing world, or a geriatric version of WARRIOR.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: It’s a good-enough film.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Watching these two wrinkled, leather grandfathers – who are way past their prime – strip to the waist, touch gloves and duke it out is not only callously cruel but also pathetic.
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • John Hanlon @ JohnHanlonReviews.com
    • Excerpt: Packed with crass and obnoxious humor, this new comedy is a loser for all of the great actors involved.
  • Travis Hopson @ Punch Drunk Critics
    • Excerpt: The fight itself is slower than cold molasses and lacks energy but were we expecting Rocky II?
  • Jason McKiernan @ Film Racket
    • Excerpt: It’s a reminder that, during those aforementioned glory days, films like Rocky and Raging Bull were examples of the greatness these actors could reach for. Now, Grudge Match is the latest example of the crap these actors seem content to settle with.
  • Nuno Reis @ Antestreia [Portuguese]
  • Tom Santilli @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: Everything about Grudge Match feels cheap and shallow.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Though I won’t spoil the ending by telling you which of them wins, the audience certainly loses.
  • Phil Villarreal @ COED.com
    • Excerpt: It’s the promise of the final bout that lugs the deadweight story through the first 100-minute, sputtering tractor pull.
