Movie Nation -
Hands of Stone is still a first-rate boxing picture, a B-movie with just enough A-picture touches to make it sting.
The Hollywood Reporter -
Hands of Stone is far from perfect, but it punches above its weight enough to prevent it from being easily dismissed.
Screen International -
Hands Of Stone tests how far a film can go solely on heart, and in this case, it turns out to be just enough to overcome biopic conventionality.
Austin Chronicle -
I could watch Ramírez read the phone book, as the old saw goes. He is one of the most vibrant and charismatic actors working today. He infuses Durán with a charm and a recklessness that is tempered by De Niro's quiet, understated performance, something he can do in his sleep.
Hands of Stone (2016)
Follows the life of Roberto Duran, who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16-year-old and retired in 2002 at age 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard to capture the WBC welterweight title but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in the November rematch, saying 'no mas' (no more).
