A determinedly old-fashioned boxing/ coming-of -age film, only perfunctorily hitting its marks.
In drawing on hackneyed plot devices from both sports movies and films about Native Americans, Schroder essentially has created an extended version of Walker, Texas Ranger without the intellectual dialogue or, sadly, Chuck Norris.
An engaging and entertaining story about a young Navajo burdened by demons about his single white ancestor, and has a chip on his shoulder
If he can refine his writing and keep his heart in the right place, Schroder's next movie might offer the impact that 'Black Cloud' is missing.
