Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone were both at one point amazing actors. Stallone has stayed consistent with his action film delivery, while De Niro has sorta taken whatever the hell earns him the quickest paycheck.
Don’t get me wrong, both men have earned the right to do whatever the hell they want in Hollywood, but it still saddens me when they dip way down below their pride and decency to make something fluffy like Grudge Match.
I haven’t seen the film yet, but judging by this first trailer I really don’t want to. It just looks too “feel good” and “soft” for the sake of it and both men can most definitely do better.
Who knows, maybe this one surprises me like Warrior did a few years back or maybe this one sinks into mediocrity, much like the horribly-picked song playing over the trailer.
