Stars: Russell Crowe, Renee Zellweger

They say: A story inspired by the life of the legendary Jim Braddock, a once-promising 1930's light heavyweight boxer forced into retirement after a string of losses in the ring. Before a spectacular comeback years later...

We say: Crunching violence, awesome archive footage and a top drawer performance from Crowe. What's not to like? Loosely based on the real life tale of Craddock's Rocky-esque rise from the depths of despair for one final crack at the title - against a good old-fashioned villain, Max Baer.
