I have watched and re-watched Raging Bull many times. And everytime I do, I walk away from the film wondering why it's held in such high regard. Then I convince myself that I must be missing something and I go back watch it again. RinseI have watched and re-watched Raging Bull many times. And everytime I do, I walk away from the film wondering why it's held in such high regard. Then I convince myself that I must be missing something and I go back watch it again. Rinse repeat. I love Scorsese and DeNiro but for whatever reason, Raging Bull feels like a kitchen sink drama with boxing sequences. Maybe this film will forever be a mystery to me. Oh well... Expand

Boring, pompous and vastly over-rated because of the Scorsese "genius." Nero over-acts just as badly fat as he does skinny. For a far better movie about a has-been boxer, try John Huston's understated, under-rated Fat City.

Its hard to hate on a classic like this one, but Raging Bull doesn't have the effect on me that it likely would have if I had watched it in 1980. The film has worn a bit over almost 35 years as most films do. Robert De Niro was still great inIts hard to hate on a classic like this one, but Raging Bull doesn't have the effect on me that it likely would have if I had watched it in 1980. The film has worn a bit over almost 35 years as most films do. Robert De Niro was still great in the lead role. I can't say anything bad about him, he showed lots of dedication by working out and then gaining weight to represent Jake La Motta after his career ended. Other than that I found the movie a bit uninteresting. Expand

For me.. the story was promising but ended up being nothing special! Great acting though (deserved oscar for DeNiro) , but on personal level - i wasn't impressed at all.
