Austin Chronicle by

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.

USA Today by Brian Truitt

Even though the film can’t focus on one subject, Hands of Stone does boast notable performances from its leads, especially Ramirez.

Variety by Owen Gleiberman

Gets the job done, but it’s hard to escape the feeling that you’re watching a routinely conceived, rather generic boxing flick. It’s utterly competent, yet it makes Duran’s story seem a little so-what?

TheWrap by Robert Abele

Unfortunately, the new biopic Hands of Stone...is too often content to play like a lot of other boxing flicks instead of forging its own path.

Movie Nation by Roger Moore

Hands of Stone is still a first-rate boxing picture, a B-movie with just enough A-picture touches to make it sting.
