Chuck

Chuck Movie - The GBY

This biopic is less idealistic than Rocky, which is also based on the life of Chuck Wepner.   Chuck (Liev Schreiber) is living on the edge between being a fighter and an enforcer.  I thought the relationships with both of his wives (Elizabeth Moss and Naomi Watson) were engaging.  Unfortunately, after his fighting successes, his involvement with drugs lead him down an ill-fated path.
