Doomed to relive their greatest hits, Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro play retired boxers who agree to one final “grudge match” to even the score. Grudge Match seems to exist for the sheer purpose of reminding everyone that Stallone and De Niro were Rocky Balboa and Jack LaMotta, just in case you’d forgotten. Outside that, there’s a reasonable chance that Grudge Match could be good. It seems to have a double-edged sword in its future in the sense that the only way this will work is if the tone is kept light, yet grounded, but if that happens, the tone could easily become unbalanced.
Grudge Match is directed by Get Smart director Peter Segel and is set to be released on December 25.
