According to the press release, Raging Bull II promises to “quench the unsatisfied thirst that movie goers desire to see more of this true middleweight boxing legend”. We’ve read that three times, and it still makes no sense.
Making even less sense is Raging Bull II, the sequel to Martin Scorsese’s acclaimed 1980 film starring Robert De Niro. The press release goes on to say that the sequel/prequel “fills in the gaps and allows us to get to know Jake LaMotta. It answers such questions as what happened to him or what he was like as a youngster. LaMotta himself was present and providing guidance before and during the shoot”. In other words, answers to questions we never asked.
It could still be a contender, with a cast that includes William Forsythe, Joe Mantegna, Tom Sizemore, Penelope Ann Miller, along with Mojean Aria as the young Jake LaMotta. The film comes from writer-director Martin Guigui.
