From acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) and screenwriters Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) and Richard Wenk (THE MECHANIC), SOUTHPAW tells the riveting story of Billy, The Great, Hope, reigning Light Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World (Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal). Billy Hope seemingly has it all with an impressive career, a beautiful and loving wife (Rachel McAdams), an adorable daughter (Oona Laurence) and a lavish lifestyle. When tragedy strikes and his lifelong manager and friend (Curtis, 50 Cent, Jackson) leaves him behind, Hope hits rock bottom and turns to an unlikely savior at a run-down local gym: Tick Willis (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), a retired fighter and trainer to the city's toughest amateur boxers. With his future riding on Tick's guidance and tenacity, Billy enters the hardest battle of his life as he struggles with redemption and to win back the trust of those he loves.

All the necessities of a movie, entertaining, some good intelligent dialogue, humor, love, drama, thrills with an ending that will leave you sobbing..watch it, it will not disappoint.
There is very little happiness in this movie. The only way I can describe it is relentless. But at the same time with the subject at hand should I really expect anything different?
I enjoyed that it wasn't just another fight movie. I enjoyed watching the fights that were in the movie. I didn't enjoy 50 Cent though he was perfectly type cast in the role he was playing. It was very clear he was not up to par with the rest of the actors in this movie though. But thankfully he's in and out.
My one criticism:
Jake Gyllenhaal's character is supposed to be 43-0. I found this super-distracting throughout the movie as his career and life circumstances seemed completely inconsistent with this fact. Based on the details and the fact that he's a New York fighter, he seemed like a guy who's maybe somewhere around 30-0. Not a big deal, but it threw me off.
