Good old America - violent, corrupt, wife beating.

Yes OK it was a brilliantly made and acted film, but the subject matter is just so appalling. The boxing fraternity, Mafia, corruption, violence, swearing, foul language - it's all there. What a place! What a time! I'm giving it 8 stars for the acting.

I've heard so much about this film over the years, I had to rent it out, and it was worthwhile. Excellent cinematography and music, great acting, and a moving story, made all the better when I realised it was a true story! Highly recommended.
A must see film

Hadn't watched this for years but on watching again I remembered just how great it was, a must see for any film fan. DeNiro is fabulous as Le Motta and plays the part of a deeply troubled man fabulously.

Cant believe I took so long to watch this amazing movie!!! Very long, and I would recommend you watch when you are not going to be interrupted. DeNiro is once again on top form. This is quality acting!

Base don the life of Boxing legend Jake la Motta. Its very well done and shows the crazy side to this boxer, de Niro is great. In black in white but this gives the film a good feel.
