Southpaw movie review

southpaw.jpg

Jake Gyllenhaal melts into every role he takes on. Nothing more proves that than Southpaw. Gyllenhaal plays Billy Hope, undefeated boxing champion of the world. Billy is a little bit fucked up though, and by a little I mean a lot! After his wife gets shot and he blames himself, he becomes reckless and loses his daughter… Now, this is a fantastic movie. It really is. But it is one of the, if not the most depressing movie I have EVER seen. Though Gyllenhaal kills this role, and absolutely becomes this troubled man, the movie is brought down a few notches by the onslaught of drama. This movie always has very little re-watch ability. I liked it, you will like it, butbe in the right state of mind before hand.
