IGN | 'Southpaw' Review


In its odd pacing, Southpaw feels like it's based on a true story, and the fact that it's not might work against it with audiences. Plodding through tedious setup to get to the eventual turning point for Jake Gyllenhaal's rage-filled boxer is a slow burn -- too slow for fiction -- but Billy Hope's inevitable redemption is worth the wait thanks to investing performances and a potent second half.

The story is too old to be commented.
