I just watched the first 30 minutes of Southpaw (2015) starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachael McAdams. It was only rated 7.7 on IMDB which I consider to be too low - even though I've only watched the first half-hour. I think it's OK to post about a movie given that I've only watched the first 30 minutes (Its runtime is 124 min) when there is something extraordinary about the film.

I've always liked movies in which Jake Gyllenhaal appears. Nightcrawler (2014) was wonderful and if you're looking for an exciting film, you might want to give this one a try. Prisoners (2013) was an amazing Crime Mystery. Too many more fine films to list.

But this film opens with a boxing fight scene that just seems far more realistic than any other fight scenes I've seen. I know that is something extreme to say because there have been so many superb fight scenes from so many boxing movies recently. But give this film a chance and see if you don't agree.

This film seems like it will be truly excellent.
