"Hands of Stone" is a sprawling yet fairly conventional biopic about the Panamanian boxing champion Roberto Duran – a man AP once declared the seventh-greatest fighter and No. 1 lightweight of the 20th century.Popular myth would have us all believe that Duran said "No Mas" to end the match partway through. He'd fallen out of shape in the months between the two fights.It's De Niro in a boxing movie, though, so co-lead it is."Hands of Stone" is a solid film, but you just can't help shake the feeling that we've seen it all before.
