10 | Intoxicating, Brilliant, Inspirational, and Multi-Layered- what films are meant 2 B
Wow- what an incredible movie! There are so many layers to this film, one could almost see it 4 times and get something...
Stayed in the top five at the box-office every weekend, from the time it was nominated for Best Picture, until after the Academy Awards.
Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris:
Only ever met one man I wouldn't wanna fight. When I met him he was already the best cut man in the business. Started training and managing in the sixties, but never lost his gift.
Sucker punching someone in boxing is a serious offense and will often result in a suspension of the offender. If it resulted in an injury like one suffered by Maggie, it would result in the arrest of the fouling fighter, the likely permanent revocation of their boxing license and a very hefty lawsuit against that fighter. SInce money to care of Maggie is a major portion of the film's narrative, it's surprising that very short shrift is giving to would obviously be a major concern: The offending fighter being punished for her actions.
There are no opening credits after the title is shown.
