Interestingly, one review I saw of the movie said it was disappointing, because it didn't include the fights with Gatti, and said this would be like making a Franklin Roosevelt movie that stopped in 1941. I thought that was a weak criticism. I'd love to see a really good FDR biopic that was focused on the period 1933-1941.
Nothing more irritating then people who criticize an artist for not including subject matter that they find to be more interesting or politically angled toward their personal bias. As Eastwood said to Spike Lee "If you don't like it go make your own damn movie" in reference to Lee's pathetic and transparent criticism of Flags of Our Fathers.
