Storyline: When Jake LaMotta steps into a boxing ring and obliterates his opponent, he's a prizefighter. But when he treats his family and friends the same way, he's a ticking time bomb, ready to go off at any moment. Though LaMotta wants his family's love, something always seems to come between them. Perhaps it's his violent bouts of paranoia and jealousy. This kind of rage helped make him a champ, but in real life, he winds up in the ring alone.

Raging Bull is the reason why Rocky is a joke
This movie doesn't necessarily connect with you, even if you are a boxer - but the performances, the twists, the violence, the insights, make it a very good movie. This is exactly what should be brought up to Stallone's face every time to remind him that it is wrong to not care about the point of directing good movies, and it's a shame this movie rarely gets talked about when it comes to De Niro's career. Mostly now all you hear is the Godfather (more like godly boring) and Heat, which aren't very good movies.

De Niro is the proof that back then, sports movies gave you more insight on what goes on in the sport.
Not too great
I'll sum the whole movie up for you: 75% of the movie is wife beating and screaming. 25% is boxing reenactments. Jake lamotta isn't a hero, but more of a villain. I couldn't really connect with his character, because whenever he got a chance to talk, he screamed at everyone. Boxing didn't seem to be a big part of his life either, there were never any scenes where he was struggling with his career, or boxing was affecting his life in any way. You might as well make a movie documentary on joey buttafuco. This movie wasn't any good in my opinion. And when I hoped that he would come to his senses, he doesn't. I guess it's also hard for me to connect seeing as I didn't know who Jake lamotta was until I watched this movie. If you like wife-beating new yorkers who constantly yell. Watch this movie.
What a Beautiful piece of Filmmaking
If I had to sum up this film in one word it would be "Breathtaking". Right from the beginning I knew that this was one of those rare movies that immediately go in everyone's top ten lists. This film is spellbinding. The direction was flawless. The Cinematography was sublime, but the thing that stood out to me the most in this film to me was Robert De Niro's performance as Jake La Motta. In my opinion, it is the most flawless, breathtaking performance in cinema history. It truly is the best acting performance ever filmed. Supporting roles such as Joe Pesci as Joey La Motta and Cathy Moriarty as Vickie La Motta are also brilliant. Overall, the film will stand out in movie history and Robert De Niro's performance will be talked about for years to come. It will always be my favorite film and will never fail to take my breath away.
Gritty yet still maintains beautiful artistic illustration (Like most of Scorsese's movies in that period)
The partnership between revolutionary director Martin Scorsese and iconic actor Robert De Niro which spanned for about 20/25 years will forever be remembered by critics and fans as one of the greatest periods for cinematic achievement. A time were both of these legends peaked in their careers. Of course there were other actors involved (Joe Pesci, Frank Vincent, etc) But the two constants of these movies were Scorsese and De Niro. They are credited with making some of the greatest movies of all time IE; Taxi driver, Raging bull, Goodfellas and Casino just to name a few. These movies have received marvellous critical acclaim and continue to be loved even after 30 after some of them were made. They gave us a look at a world most of us had never seen, the underworld of society. They made us feel for characters we wouldn't usually associate with. And they set a standard for their type of movie which hasn't yet been conquered. But as much as I could talk all day about how these two geniuses revolutionised cinema the main concentration of this review will be based on the 1980 movie raging bull. To an outsider given only a vague idea to the story of Raging bull it is just another boxing movie. But if we look deeper into the surface we find that it is much more. It is more than just another rocky movie, it's not about a brain dead boxer who tries hard and wins it has much more deaph than that. The movie tells the story of an emotionally self destructive boxers rise (ish) And fall. It is a study of a man (Jake La Motta played by De Niro) who keeps knocking himself down everywhere he goes in life. A man who we learn more and more about throughout the course of the movie. We see he abuses the women in his life he sees them as slaves not human beings. We see throughout the course of the movie that he ends up despising himself. We see that he will be willing to change himself just for the sake of masculinity something which most men can relate to. The boxing ring is nothing more than a symbolic parallel to his life outside it. it's almost as if he is punishing himself for what he has done in his life. La Motta ends up in a state were he doesn't demand pity but the audience feels sorry for him anyway. Although La Motta is a scumbag we are still interested and relating with the character throughout the 2 hour long movie. Scorsese makes Raging bull a lot more classical with the use of classical music throughout the films gritty tale it gives us a feel of beauty beneath the surface of this man tough guy exterior.

The film won Robert De Niro a best actor in a leading role Oscar although Scorsese's fully deserving best director Oscar went to Robert Redford.
one of the most powerful movies, ever!
From the story of a one time middle weight champion of the world and his apparent necessity for internal conflict and self destruction, America's greatest director in the history of cinema has carved a masterpiece of a feature, teaming up with the greatest actor of his generation in order to establish what will no doubt go down in history as one of the most powerful films of all time. "Raging Bull", directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Robert deNiro in the brilliant performance that ensured him a well deserved Academy Award, is a raw feature film that will have you stunned at its conclusion and leave you reeling in your theatre, couch or bed until the final credit has finished rolling off the screen.

The film, adapted from another source, revolves around the rise and fall of Jake LaMotta (deNiro), an ambitious middle weight fighter who has struggled for years along with his manager brother (an unforgettable Joe Pesci) to get a shot at the title for the middle weight champion of the world. Frustrated with himself and the life that he's had to lead, LaMotta presents the complex mind of a self destructive man who's inhumanity and self-destructive nature push him away from all the people in the world that love him and ultimately transform him from a prize fighter into an overweight sleaze with nothing but the clothes on his back. From the flawless and gripping boxing scenes to the raw yet accurate portrayal of his abusive habits towards both his brother and wife, "Raging Bull" succeeds on absolutely every level.

DeNiro's performance in the film is unquestionably his finest piece of work in his own personal career, if not throughout the history of cinema altogether. Completely believable as a boxer, he furthermore went on a diet to put on 60 pounds for his scenes situated in the latter half of the film when he has hit rock bottom which is testament to both his dedication and his unparalleled skill of establishing a believable character. Joe Pesci is absolutely brilliant as his portrayal of Jake's brother, Joey LaMotta, and considering the fact that was one of his first feature films in the spotlight, he completely delivers a character who loves his brother unquestionably but who also has internal struggles regarding his own nature and his methods of dealing with his brother. I fell in love with Joe Pesci due to his performance here, and he is clearly one of the more talented and gifted actors within Hollywood.

Scorsese is also in top form, and you can feel his presence, his brilliance and his uncompromising dedication to showing you the real life and times of Jake LaMotta in every single piece of footage presented to you on the screen. Martin Scorsese illustrates the reason why he is considered by many to be cinema's greatest film director of all time as he takes you on a journey of Jake LaMotta's personal and public existence. Scorsese doesn't leave anything out, and his brilliance obviously lies within the fact that he can illustrate everything about a character in the simplest of scenes to make you empathise but simultaneously make you comprehend the various fundamental layers of such a despicable character in cinema history. And on top of that, he can make you like the character and hate the character at the exact same time - a brilliance unprecedented throughout Hollywood and surely testament to Scorsese's superiority to directors such as Steven Spielberg and Clint Eastwood who, despite having tremendous talent, cannot realistically present characters to the extent that Scorsese can.

Further supporting cast members, Cathy Moriarty and Frank Vincent deliver completely credible characters with Moriarty well deserving of her Oscar Nomination for her performance as Vickie. The editing was completely flawless and top notch throughout the entire feature with Scorsese's other partner - Thelma Schoonmaker - bringing Scorsese's incredible vision to life once more without a single complaint in the world. Brilliant cinematography ensured a visually compelling piece of work, exemplified further by an Oscar Nod towards this element of the picture also.

All in all, this is arguably the finest achievement from the Scorsese-DeNiro partnership, and it delivers everything that you would predict from our beloved Martin Scorsese. Love, deceit, hate, an underlying theme of violence, some of the best acting ever put on film as well as some of the most brutal and compelling sequences of boxing you'll ever see: all are shown with flamboyance and an honest brutality that we've come to accept as the trademark of Martin Scorsese in this poignant tale of one man's annihilation of self. And who is the only director who could realistically bring this to life? We all know the answer.

Well done, Mr Scorsese. Regardless of what the pretentious fools responsible for the decisions that the Academy makes, the people are fully aware of who the best director in town is.

"Raging Bull" is flawless and perfect. 10 out of 10, all the way.
Another Scorsese masterpiece.
This movie is just pure cinematic brilliance. It's up there with Scorsese's other masterpieces; "Goodfellas" and "Taxi Driver".

Let's face it people, the story isn't that awfully strong (Supposedly the script took only 2 weeks to write.). But yet the movie is extremely powerful and interesting to watch because of mainly 2 aspects; Scorsese's fantastic, almost poetic directing and the performances by all of the actors.

Robert De Niro, Cathy Moriarty and Joe Pesci give away some impressive acting performances. All three were nominated for an Oscar but only De Niro got to take the statue home with him. Also the fact that he gained an impressive 60 pounds for his role as the 'older' Jake La Motta must have helped him with his win.

The movie is filmed in atmospheric black & white. The camera angles are all extremely simple but they work extremely effective. The classical music by Pietro Mascagni also adds to the atmosphere of the movie.

The directing and acting truly make this movie memorable and interesting to watch. Even the scene's were nothing is really happening are made with such profession that it's a shear pleasure to watch. The boxing scene's are filmed highly original and with much gore (Ever seen a nose being broken?). I especially like the boxing matches between La Motta and Sugar Ray Robinson.

But this movie is way more than just a boxing or sports movie. The drama in the movie is powerful and feels real as well as the emotions. There are some truly impressive, powerful and memorable scene's.

It's just simply one of those movie were 'everything feels right' and works well. There is nothing wrong with this piece of cinematic brilliance and this movie proofs that Scorsese was and perhaps still is one of the best directors to have ever lived.


One off the top 10 best movies ever
I feel that Raging Bull is underrated by the public they are clearly not getting it where as other Scorsese movies like Goodfellas and The Departed are higher rated then they should be, now don't get me wrong I think Goodfellas is one the top 100 movies ever made and The Departed is a classic but out of all the movies that are higher rated then Raging Bull only about 3 or 4 are regarded as being better, some of you may be thinking what Im saying is I prefer Raging Bull to these movies no no no that is not what Im saying because Pulp Fiction is my second favorite movie ever but it is way too high it should be around the 80 mark in the top 250. So let me start by saying the cast are all great I think the two best though are De Niro and Pesci, it is worth mentioning that De Niros performance I saw one magazine rank the 11th greatest off all time, the film is a film about boxing but I feel it is so much more then that it is really about jealousy and it shows it in a way that is way ahead of any other film that has jealousy in. The Boxing scenes are far better shot then any other film it just looks wonderful, I like Rocky but this is the champion of all boxing movies in fact even though I don't like to call it a sport movie if you do call it that it is the best sports movie ever. a lot more great things could be said about this film or you could just watch it and see how great it is yourself and watch it more then once it gets better the more you watch it. Plus go look at the sight and sounds poll so many Directors and critics put this in there top 10 favorite movies ever made. One last thing this fill got robbed at the Oscars it should have won every Oscar it was nominated for.
Raging, marvelously raging, one of the best, if not...
Raging Bull - a movie about a man with bad problems.

What kind of problems... Well a lot. I was disturbed when I watched this, this beautiful cinematic experience. The opening, the distance, De Niro dancing in the ring with a leopard robe, black and white, ohh.... The best cinematography, it is something very VERY beautiful. Words can't express how far my love for this movie has gone and is going. I will give it a second watch...

With all that said, I think you'll know just how much I like Raging Bull. So, Raging Bull is about Jake LaMotta, the most mentally complex protagonist ever. A man who is number #1 in boxing, he is in his eyes at the top of the world. While he is at the top of the world, everything he does and stands for outside the ring get's completely mauled.

My most interesting analysis is Jake's psychology. Does he suffer from some mental dis- order? Or is this man seriously just like this naturally? His name is so accurate, he truly is a bull. A raging one. He does so many things that I think are just crazy. His sexual jealousy, his anger, every inch of detail he looks at, what the hell is wrong with him? I hated him, and that is a good thing. This character of Jake is the most mental wise evil protagonist I have seen so far. This movie had some psychological thriller in it. And what can I say about the black and white cinematography? I loved it so much! It made the movie even darker. This movie is a masterpiece you need to watch, the best movie that has boxing in it, and just all around one of the smartest movies I have ever watched.
The greatest boxing film ever made.
People speak very highly of Rocky and other boxing films. This is truly the best of all boxing films. All others are cheap imitations. Cinderella Man, Rocky, Million Dollar Baby, and Ali are not as good as this film. It is magnificently shot- EXCELLENT CINEMATOGRAPHY- the score works wonderfully with the story- the rise and fall of boxing star Jake LaMotta. I am convinced that Robert DeNiro delivers one of the greatest acting performances of movie history. He is literally up there with Marlon Brando and rightfully received the Best Actor Oscar of 1980. I am shocked that Raging Bull did not receive Best Picture. Maybe for its time, the language and sexual dialogue was not too appreciated. Don't let this deter you from seeing the movie. Joe Pesci and Robert DeNiro work very well together and this is Martin Scorsese's greatest film. Taxi Driver, Gangs of New York or GoodFellas could not top this film. A true cinema masterpiece. 10/10.
Ostentatiously pretentious with a one-dimensional central character
Certainly a contender for the most overrated film ever made. I like some of Martin Scorsese's work, but I have never understood the near hysterical reactions elicited by critics and his die-hard fans over his contributions to cinema which, much like Steven Spielberg, range from wonderful to embarrassing. To them, every Scorsese film is "brilliant." However, despite the reassurances of various critical associations and hero-worshipping fans all too willing to declare this the greatest film made in the last 30 years, most viewers may well wonder what all of the hoopla is about. The film is a biography of boxer Jake LaMotta and documents his volatile, tempestuous nature both in the boxing ring and in his personal life. There is no doubt that Robert DeNiro hurls himself heart and soul into this role, but much of the accolades heaped onto his work center on the arduous physical labors he endured to get himself into fighting shape for LaMotta at his prime and then make himself fat to depict LaMotta having gone to seed. One must admire his dedication, but it was hardly the first time an actor had gone to such efforts – people quickly forget the weight gains of actresses such as Elizabeth Taylor for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf or Lynn Redgrave in Georgy Girl more than a decade prior to DeNiro in Raging Bull. Ironically, other than the physical, there is nothing to recommend LaMotta as a character around whom a movie should be centered. He greets every obstacle in his life, either person or event, by trying to batter it into bloody submission. There is no range to him and he is most certainly not a charismatic person. I certainly would not wish to spend more than a few moments in his presence much less the duration of this film, which ultimately depicts LaMotta as little more than a not especially intelligent, violent pugilist. The profane dialog is anything but memorable and the people who surround LaMotta are little more than ciphers. The film is brutal and often hard to watch, more so because of its pretense rather than brutality. Scorsese films the whole thing in stark black and white and choreographs some of the boxing footage with mournful classical music. All of these touches seem to indicate a serious subject of near biblical importance – but that subject most definitely is not seen on screen in the guise of LaMotta. Joe Pesci pretty much contributes his stock Joe Pesci performance as Jake's brother. The film's biggest attempt at humor comes at the expense of Cathy Moriarty, a whiskey-voiced actress who resembles a 30-year-old vamp but who the film initially tries to pass off as a virginal 15-year-old(!). To her credit, she gets past that initial hurdle and makes Vickie LaMotta the only sympathetic character in the film. Raging Bull is by no stretch a bad film, but it is a criminally overrated one done in by ostentatious pretentiousness and an unsympathetic central character who (no matter how amazing the actor's physical transformation) is nothing more than a one-dimensional thug.
