Southpaw (2015) **REVIEW**

Southpaw is a dark and powerful drama that anyone should see. Jake Gyllenhaal is brilliant  as the boxer Billy Hope.  He is a pro boxer who’s great but forgotten why he starting boxing and forgot about his talent.

During a a fight after a charity with a rival there’s gunshots going around – Billy’s wife Maureen is hit and dies in his arms. Now Billy have to take care of their daughter, house and bills. But since Billy took his wife’s passing very hard he lost his daughter to social services, lost his house and is broke.

Billy tries his luck at a gym he used to train at when he was younger so get his life back and remember why he started boxing. He tries his hardest to see his daughter – Billy still got visitation rights but supervised. The owner at this gym, Tick,  where Billy trains gets him a job to clean the place up and he gets to train when he likes. During Billy’s time at this gym he gets a chance to do a charity boxing game and wants to go back to pro boxing. He gets his chance and wants Tick to train him, because he could train Billy differently.. During his training period he gets more and more chances to see his daughter unsupervised.

During his fight that happens in Vegas you can see how he all of the sudden fights differently. Before the accident of his wife he fight mean and ugly. Now – he fights smart. Billy gets a chance to come back to life and have his daughter again.

Southpaw is a film everyone should see. It’s emotional and powerful. Jake Gyllenhaal is absolutely brilliant and he could capture this boxer’s life perfectly. His daughter played by Oona Laurence did an outstanding job too. I admit I did cry at points because of these two actors had an amazing chemistry on screen.

You see actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, Oona Laurence, Rachel McAdams, Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent, Miguel Gomez, Naomie Harris and many more.
