"YOU know what this is, Razor? It's a video game. They wanna put you and Kid in the game." – Dante Slate Jnr.
'Grudge Match' is the comic boxing movie that has Sly Stallone and Robert De Niro climbing into the ring after 30 years of accumulating unwanted flesh to settle some unspecific, old score.
It's a send-up of every schmaltzy, Rocky-style flick ever shown. Stallone – aka Henry 'Razor' Sharp – is, after all, 67 now. De Niro – or Billy 'The Kid' McDonnen – is 70. There is no real way of stripping either man to the waist without everything feeling just a little creepy.
