Southpaw Movie Makes You Cry

Boxing drama Southpaw (2015) hit silver screen in Australia last night.

Regardless how tough you may be, during over two hours of Southpaw movie, emotions and bugs are all over you and basically ripping you apart. Toughness has nothing to do with the muscles when it comes to living your life aspects.


The plot of the picture is very simple, it is all about ordinary life. Involvement of boxing simply generates that comparison, clearly demonstrating that very thin line between toughness and weakness.

Hope Dies Last

One of the taglines of Southpaw movie is “Never Give Up Hope”. It obviously reflects on the last name of the main character Billy Hope. However there is much more deeper meaning behind it.

The definition of both “life” and “live” is obviously about people. It is also always about other people, those important for you. So basically when you lose a person from your life, but this person is still in “life”, there is always hope to get this person back in your life, if you know what I mean.

The hope dies together with that person. Simply saying when that person is gone, there is no more hope to get anything back in (to) “life”. This is when the responsibility on the third person comes into action. It is very important to take that responsibility. The responsibility that drives you and not letting to give up.

You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed

The drama in Southpaw starts when Hope looses his better half. It develops into a more difficult situation when the system is taking his daughter away from him. The one, he is responsible on. The way that renowned system works we all know quite well. This is also and always a human factor which this system is made of – made by different people.

I believe, the responsibility on others is the only thing which keeps all of us going. Prove me wrong when you find a happy person who has all of the “materialistic features”, but nobody to bring him a glass of water, and not because they are paid for doing it, but because they care and responsible on this person.

Hurt, But Never Defeated

Southpaw movie demonstrates the power of the will. It clearly shows that there is always a certain way to come out victorious. This way – is to do what you’ve been always doing the best. In the movie it is boxing, which is easy to put as an example, with the “winning inside the ring” feeling of being a champion. But in fact – it can be anything. This is where the new plan is not applicable.

Plans Never Work

One of the scenes in Southpaw is when they are talking about the next step. Hope mentions that it has never been him drawing those plans. It has been always his wife, who is now gone. Being lost, but responsible he, though, finds the way. The way I’ve just mentioned above – he does what he does best.

One man, no man

There is an old Russian saying which is translated in English as “There is safety in numbers”, or maybe a closer definition will be “One man, no man”. Basically it means that we all need help. This is where Hope finds that needed person, the trainer, who helps him dot the i’s and cross the t’s. This how it is always in life – you meet people with the same spirit as you, combining together a Win Team.

Love, Hope, Believe

Everything done because of love – is always beautiful. Simply because love is the most beautiful feeling. About hope I have just written above. So finally, when it comes to believe in love, never giving up on hope featuring doing what you do best – this is that required plan.

Keep living your life, cause it’s your time

If the hope faded away with that person, which is obviously not under your control, – you have to let it go. You must success because you are responsible on those who need you.

If there is hope – you must prove wrong… if you really believe that you are “The King”.

History Repeats. Always

I believe any top athlete, celebrity, “the king”… basically any of us can apply this Southpaw movie life story on ourselves. It is known that higher you get, worse it hurts when you fall. You like it or not, the falling aspect is always on the books. Life is a very balanced thing.

Injured, Hurt, with a horrific Loss… but still the champ

The Southpaw movie itself is the top Hollywood production. It has all necessary features and characters to demonstrate the reality of life and everything involved. Em was right, saying “everybody smashed it.” I, believe, am right, saying you must watch it.

After the movie, we’ve kind of laughed on the way back home, that us fighters who get kicked and elbowed on the daily basis, have almost dropped into tears, while watching the picture. This is how emotional and true story the Southpaw movie is. It does touch your heart and makes you think.
