Grudge Match Movie Review – De Niro vs Stallone – 2014 Comedy

Grudge Match Movie Review

Have you seen Grudge Match?  I must admit I hadn’t and wasn’t exactly looking forward to it. Did my opinion change after viewing it, lets find out here’s my Grudge Match movie review (Blu-ray version).

  • Grudge Match (2014)
  • Comedy
  • Directed By Peter Segal
  • Story By Tim Kelleher
  • Music By Trevor Rabin
  • Starring Robert De Niro ; Sylvester Stallone ; Kevin Hart ; Alan Arkin ; Kim Basinger


So first off it’s a comedy film about two former light heavyweight boxers who’s only losses came in two fights against each other.

Now long retired, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr (A young Don King type) convinces them to be part of a computer game, requiring them to appear through the power of green screen.

The only problem being they hate each other, but no problem they don’t need to there at the same time. So problem solved end of film? No as Billy “The Kid” McDonnen (Robert De Niro) turns up early whilst Henry “Razor” Sharp (Sylvester Stallone) is doing his part.

Well all hell breaks loose, someone films their altercation on a phone and posts it online and you guessed it, the video goes viral.

You can probably see where this is going, a grudge match in a boxing ring, but this is not really the main point of the film. The point is how we get there and it’s through comedy after all this is a comedy movie.

Don’t worry I not about to tell you who wins, you have to watch it for yourself.

Conclusion: Grudge Match Movie Review (Blu-ray)

What I will tell you is I found this film funny and entertaining. I’ll admit I had my reservations before watching. There are nods to the Rocky films, De Niro probably gets the best lines and Kevin Hart is outstanding as the boxing promoter. Hart really bounces well off both De Niro and Stallone.

So if you are looking for a light entertaining comedy movie this may well be for you.
