Rating: 2.5/4 -- The original film took 85 minutes, this one 121; the extra length has not improved the story. Full Review

Rating: C- -- Zeffirelli's inferior remake to King Vidor's 1932 classic, starring Jon Voight in the Oscar-winning role that Wallace Beery had originated, is a manipulative tear-jerking melodrama. Full Review

The tear-jerking is so determined and persistent that your ducts feel as if they'd been worked over with a catheter. Full Review

A rudimentary and boring melodrama. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: 1.5/5 -- The most offputting thing about such canny, tear-stained movies as The Champ is not their naïveté but their unholy sophistication. These movies don't mean to deal with the world as it really is, but as it should be.

Description by OLDIES.com:
