Resurrecting the Champ is a specialty of director Rod Lurie, a civics lecture disguised as a film.

While Resurrecting the Champ seems to be just what you expect, it's only when you've let your guard slip that you realize it's hiding something altogether more forceful in its glove.

Resurrecting the Champ is authentic in its newsroom scenes, and appropriately concerned at how entertainment value trumps diligent reporting.

Resurrecting the Champ is a movie I was going to recommend. It was contrived and dopey, but it seemed like pleasant entertainment. Then came the terrible last ten minutes when it casts itself on the rancid junk heap of hokum.

Champ is a solid effort with a lot going for it, but it suggests that Lurie still isn't willing to relax and let viewers interpret his films.

Nothing can wrench this movie from the grip of a saccharine, formulaic script full of plattitudes and divided allegiances.

There's no rule that says a movie must have a likable character at its center, but it helps if a nonlikable central character is at least interesting.

Even though the melodrama gets ratcheted up at the end, there were plenty of moments I found myself cheering for the Champ.

The movie itself -- which deals (not very interestingly) with the issue of journalistic integrity and (very predictably) with father-son relationships -- doesn't pack much of a wallop.

Despite one great performance and an intriguing setup, the work is crippled by another performance that's nowhere near great, and a storyline that makes it impossible to root for the leading man.
