Meh

Don't believe the hype. It's overrated. An interesting biopic that is full of great boxing sequences while some other boring scenes from LaMotta's life fill the rest of it. The dialogue is too explicit and cheap.

It's raw, it's brutal, and it's one of the best movies ever created

"Raging Bull" is a raw and brutal masterpiece that pulls no punches. Robert De Niro plays Jake LaMotta, a real life middleweight boxer, who primarily destroys his life and others around him because of having a short temper and making bad decisions. He's not only violent inside the ring, but also outside the ring. The screenplay is well-done, Martin Scorsese's direction is outstanding, and the cinematography is exquisite (shot mostly in black and white). Additionally, "Raging Bull" won two Oscars, including Best Actor (De Niro) and Best Film Editing. Plus, it features a strong supporting cast, including Cathy Moriarty (in her Oscar-nominated role of Vicki, Jake LaMotta's wife), Joe Pesci (in his Oscar-nominated role of Joey, Jake's brother), Frank Vincent, and Nicholas Colasanto. "Raging Bull" is not only one of the best movies of the 1980s, but of all-time, as well. Lastly, it is a film that is not for children to watch at all, because of the strong profanity and violence. A first-rate movie.

"Raging Bull" is not only one of the best movies of the 1980s, but of all-time. It has a brutal, yet powerful storyline or plot, Martin Scorsese's direction is superb, the screenplay is well-done, and the cinematography is exquisite (it was shot mostly in black and white). Additionally, the film won two Oscars, including Best Actor (Robert De Niro) and Best Film Editing. A raw and brutal masterpiece. It's a film that's objectionable for children and is for older teens and adults only, because of the violence and strong language.
