The story revolves around retired boxers Billy “The Kid” McGuigan and Henry “Razor” Sharp, lifelong bitter rivals who are coaxed out of retirement and into the ring for one final grudge match — 50 years after their last title fight.
“Grudge Match” is a slow moving movie that tries too hard to create a story that the audience will sympathize with. Unfortunately, the filmmakers do this with almost every character in the film. Due to the long back stories the main plot of two over-the-hill boxers facing off against each other that should have taken 90 minutes to unfold takes just short of 2 hours. In addition to the excessive sub-plots, the dialog contains so many foul words that you really have trouble feeling a great deal of compassion for the characters. Due to the excessive langugae and sexuality in the movie, this film is not considered to be appropriate for family viewing.
