Gyllenhaal teams very well with other actors - with Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain, for example, or with Michael Pena in End of Watch, one of my favorite cop films of recent years. He and Michelle Monaghan play off each other exceptionally well in the twisty science fiction thriller Source Code, and his scenes with both Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey, Jr. in Zodiac are often quite funny.
The trailer for Southpaw underwhelmed me. I thought it made the film look predictable and by-the-numbers. I mean, a down-on-his-luck boxer has to redeem himself for the love of the daughter, what do you think is going to happen?
