Boxing is a sport that has limited understanding. It’s literally a game where people just beat the fuck out of each other. It’s quite alarming.
Anyway, there have been many movies about boxing and Hands of Stone is adding to the list.
Starring Robert De Niro (who is also in a boxing film) Hands of Stone follows the life of Roberto Duran who as a Panamanian fighter during the sixties, retiring in 2002 at the age of 50. However, in 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard to capture the WBC welterweight title, only to shock the boxing world to return for a re-match…
This looks alright but if you’ve seen one sporting biopic, you’ve seen them all.
What do you think?
HANDS OF STONE IS OUT LATER THIS YEAR!
