*** China Heavyweight The latest from Chinese-Canadian director Yung Chang (“Up the Yangtze”) has more in common with Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky” than it does with Frederick Wiseman’s “Boxing Gym.” Where Wiseman excelled in respecting the broad rhythms and pure storytelling of the ring, Chang’s new documentary focuses on the stories of three boxers and weaves them into a compelling, beautifully photographed narrative that rivals anything Hollywood could script. In Mandarin and Sichuanese, with subtitles. (89 min., unrated) (Janice Page)
