Action/Adventure



While it never sounded like a great idea for a film, Grudge Match can't be faulted for not having a decent hook. With Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro starring as a couple of elderly boxers hell-bent on fighting each other one last time, the film enables the two screen veterans a chance to revisit legendary roles from their past while winking at the audience. Unfortunately, what the audience actually gets is a movie that never decides what it wants to be. It only truly comes alive when Bernthal or Kim Basinger, as a former flame of both fighters, appears. If nothing else, the film reminds us just how underrated an actress Basinger is, as she tries valiantly to rise above the material.
