Imagine the ultimate movie boxing match: Rocky vs. The Raging Bull. Now think of them as thirty years past their prime. In a nutshell, that’s Warner Brothers’ Grudge Match – the Expendables of sports movies. Billy ‘The Kid’ McDonnen (Robert DeNiro) and Henry ‘Razor’ Sharp (Sylvester Stallone) fought twice back in the day, each winning once.

Directed by Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48 Hours), it’s an entertaining melange of action movie tropes.
