The Last Round tells a story that sounds vaguely familiar: a working-class boxer, second-generation immigrant family, living the big city, scraping together a meager boxing career. He achieves enough success to catch the interest of listening ears. Flash forward a few years, and, suddenly, the working-class hero boxer is aiming to fight the boisterous, tough-talking world heavyweight titleholder. . . and to the surprise of everyone, the absolute underdog comes out swinging, holding his own against the champion. The underdog loses the fight, but makes the champion earn it over a full 15-round tooth-and-nail battle. It has long been rumored that this fight, the Chuvalo vs. Ali fight, was the real-life inspiration for the movie Rocky

Seth Bundle ist ein von seiner Arbeit besessener Wissenschaftler: In seinem Kleiderschrank hängen sieben identische Anzüge, damit er keinen Gedanken daran verschwenden muß, was er anziehen soll, und sich voll auf sein Projekt konzentrieren kann - den Transport von Gegenständen mittels elektronischer Entmaterialisierung. Die Journalistin Veronica ist von dem Gerät fasziniert - und von Seth Brundle. Als der eines Tages das Transportexperiment an sich selbst durchführt, übersieht er jedoch, daß sich mit ihm eine Fliege in der Entmaterialisierungskabine befindet. Der Computer weiß mit den verwirrenden Daten der beiden unterschiedlichen Wesen nichts anzufangen und verschmilzt sie zu einer neuen Molekularstruktur. Seth Brundle beginnt sich zu verändern ... Die gleichnamige Verfilmung des Stoffes aus dem Jahr 1958 bezog ihre Spannung aus der verzweifelten Suche des Wissenschaftlers nach der Fliege, die nach der Rematerialisierung seine Kopf und Arm bekommen hatte. Im Unterschied dazu setzt David Cronenberg vor allem auf den Horror der allmählichen Verwandlung Brundles zu einem gräßlichen Mischwesen. Diese Wandlung wird nicht nur durch die Oscar-gekrönte Maske von Chris Walas und Stephan Dupuis überzeugend in Szene gesetzt, sondern vor allem von dem überragenden Hauptdarsteller Jeff Goldblum. Er schafft es, in den ersten 60 Minuten so viel Sympathie für sich zu erwecken, dass uns seine spätere Veränderung um so härter trifft.
