Movie Reviews

Beaumont Journal - 9/10 by Danny Minton The film could have been more successful without the language, but the filmmakers probably spiced it up in order to achieve PG-13 status.
Seattle Times - 9/10 by Tom Keogh There's no rule that says a movie must have a likable character at its center, but it helps if a nonlikable central character is at least interesting.
Film School Rejects - 9/10 by Kevin Carr not a big popcorn movie, but it's one not to be missed
Entertainment Spectrum - 9/10 by Vince Koehler This is the first movie of 2007 to change my way of thinking. It will have you cheering Champ on!
Long Island Press - 9/10 by Prairie Miller If only the film had stayed out of the bedroom and in the bowels of the boxing world, this small gem could have been an unqualified knockout.
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 9/10 by Colin Covert This is at heart a story about fathers and sons and self-discovery, and on that score it's a knockout.
One Guy's Opinion - 9/10 by Frank Swietek Comes across an awful lot like a sentimental, manipulative teleflick. The good news is that it's a fairly well-executed example of the type.
About.com - 9/10 by Rebecca Murray An entertaining and intelligent father and son relationship drama
ComingSoon.net - 9/10 by Edward Douglas Another strong film from Lurie ... an endearing, crowd-pleasing drama.
Washington Post - 8/10 by Stephen Hunter Hardly anything feels real, but what feels even more unreal is Hartnett with a cloying, sentimental, self-pitying performance. The liveliest thing in the film is the great Jackson, slumming again in a role miles beneath him.
Reel.com - 8/10 by Pam Grady Ultimately, the film fails because it never answers the question of why anyone should care about this guy who cares so little about himself that he lands himself in trouble in the first place.
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA) - 8/10 by Linda Cook Reporters also refer to what they write as "my story."
