Resurrecting The Champ (2007)

When upandcoming sports writer Erik Kernan (Josh Hartnett) saves a homeless man from a scrape with a group of rowdy college kids, he unwittingly finds himself face to face with no ordinary bum, but Champ, the onetime boxing great Bob Satterfield. What begins as a story resurrecting a once–great man turns into an incredible journey, and an opportunity for Erik to reexamine his own life, his relationship with his young son and his recently separated wife. The film is based on the L.A. Times Magazine article written by J. R. Moehringer.

Josh Hartnett is a fine actor. The film is a bit long
winded, though.

Rating: 1/5.
