CHUCK movie review

https://mattkprovideo.com/2019/04/13/chuck-movie-review/

I just watched the movie “Chuck”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chuck_(film)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1610525/

I had heard for years there was a low end boxer who kept claiming he was the REAL “ Rocky”.

Sounded like a wanna bee trying to leech off of Stallone.  The Rocky story was similar to MANY aspiring and or over the hill boxers.

After I saw this movie, I think that Stallone HAD to be at least partially inspired by the Wepner story.

Wepners fight happened right before Stallone started writing the ROCKY script.

An over the hill washed up low end local boxer gets picked the go against the national heavy weight champ in an exhibition match.

Rocky/Chuck goes against Appollo Creed / Muhammed Ali and goes the distance…. doesn’t win but lasts longer than anybody thought he would. And the way Rocky grabs the ropes at the end of the fight is IDENTICAL to the real Wepner -Ali fight.

The actor playing Ali doesn’t really look like him too much but does the voice well.  Will Smith was the WEIRDEST choice to play Ali in that other movie….. but who else has the charm to sell Alis trash talking and taunting poems  like Will Smith (and Apparently Smiths body was worked into an exact replica of Ali’s definitions).  I think the closest replica of Muhammad Ali was the actor who appears Ali in a brief shot in the Denzel Washington movie “American Gangster”

You see all those perfectly sculpted bodies on movie boxers that its odd when you see that real boxers usually have mass not definition:

The cleverest thing was that they used a lot of 1970s newsreel and stock footage, and then shot the actors scene in a style that looks like 1970s documentary film. You’d almost think a 70s news crew shot the movie.

An interesting story but I was really let down by the ending.  It ends with the “hot waitress” he’s been listing after the whole movie getting with him. I didn’t get what she saw in him. I would have liked to have seen him make amends to the ex wife and daughter and brother he was mistreating the whole movie.
