Screen legends Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro duke it out in this boxing comedy as two ring legends who fought each other twice in their professional careers – winning once each. 30 years on, their vicious rivalry forces them out of retirement for one last tie-breaking match. From the director of The Longest Yard, co-starring Kevin Hart, Alan Arkin, Kim Basinger and Jon Bernthal.

With films like The Expendables and Last Vegas clogging up the multiplexes, the cinema of nostalgia appears to be in full swing. Grudge Match is the second film of its kind starring Robert De Niro to be released in as many weeks in New Zealand, but thankfully it's a bit more fun than last week's abhorrent Last Vegas.

Sporadically amusing, with some chucklesome sight gags and crowdpleasing supporting turns from Alan Arkin and Kevin Hart.

Cheap sentimentality can't disguise the crashing cynicism on display.

Never have I wanted to un-see a film more badly than this.

Wall-to-wall jokes and wall-to-wall depressing.

Although it seeks to send up their greatest on-screen achievements, this half-baked farce merely reinforces the idea that De Niro and Stallone have seen better days.

De Niro and Stallone cash in a few legacy chips... a limp boxing comedy

An idea that must have sounded good on paper looks a lot less smart on the screen.
