This trailer’s been all over the internet today, but it’s way too sick not to post. Feel like I just saw the whole fucking movie a little bit but that’s okay. It was worth it. Now, it’s very important not to get your hopes up too high from a trailer, but it’s okay to form a few opinions about how it might turn out. If this flick has any shot at being any good, then it’s got to pull off a few critical things. Let us pray:
-That the boxing scenes look believable. Rocky phantom swings and Cinderella Man contact camera flashes will piss me off forever.
-On the same note, that the boxers don’t take Rocky Apollo damage to the face with their hands at their waist a million times per round. I know the Ward/Gatti fight was brutal but I need me some realism.
-That the Amy Adams punching some chick in the face scene isn’t as movie-wrecking as it looks in that split second clip.
-That this will be a Boston movie where the actors actually pull off decent accents. I don’t want it to be something I constantly think about the entire fucking movie. I want Casey Affleck in Good Will, Amy Ryan in Gone Baby Gone, Wahlberg in The Departed, and most of the guys in Eddie Coyle. I don’t want Mel Gibson in Edge of Darkness, Vera Farmiga and Martin Sheen in The Departed, or Tim Robbins in Mystic River (“Vampires and Werewolves” got him a Best Supporting Actor Oscar, believe it or not). You get the idea. I still haven’t seen The Town so I can’t tell you how Jeremy Renner did but it looked suspect from the trailer.
Lawd, hear our prayeah.
