Chuck - Movie Synopsis & Plot

He was the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey, a man who went fifteen rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali, and the real life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck Wepner (Liev Schreiber) was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicized title match. It’s the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame—but what happens when your fifteen minutes in the spotlight are up? Driven by a committed performance from Liev Schreiber, Chuck is a refreshingly human tale of resilience and redemption. Elisabeth Moss and Naomi Watts costar.

MOVIE REVIEW

If you’ve ever wondered about the true story behind Rocky, look no further than the drama Chuck, about real-life boxer Chuck Wepner. If you didn’t know Rocky was based on a real person, you’re not alone—I sure as hell didn’t.
