Southpaw (2015) 5 out of 5 It must be in Jake Gyllenhaal’s DNA reconfiguration somewhere that he was just born to act and the roles given, he plays with scary enthusiasm and dedication. He’s got that spark of mad evil genius. He just does. Jake transformed himself completely! He made himself rock hard for Southpaw. It felt like he became Prince of Persia versi 4.0. The way he moved, the way he spoke. Each role he plays, he’s TRULY a different person! Forest Whitaker (also in Southpaw), don’t get me started! That’s one crazy talented actor. Worthy of mention too, Rachel McAdams as well did a kick ass job. One thing from the movie that did stick with me (apart from Mr.Donnie Darko) was that if and when you fall, at the end of the day, only family and your true friends will be there to help you pick up the pieces or at least stick around till you do. That is definitely true. And more often than not, the person you least expected turns out to be the one that stands by you.
