Movie Reviews

Scorsese and Robert De Niro do a fearless job of showing us the precise feelings of their central character (…) Scorsese finds a way to visually suggest his jealousy.

Roger Ebert: rogerebert.com

The boxing sequences are possibly the best ever filmed, and the film captures the intensity of a boxer’s life with considerable force.
