A determinedly old-fashioned boxing/ coming-of -age film, only perfunctorily hitting its marks.

Many cliches and borrowed substitutes for creativity.

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.

Schroder's exceptionally impressive writing and directing debut.

A punch-drunk boxing drama that can't quite connect as it swings for its emotional uppercut.
