Critic Reviews for The Calcium Kid
It never lives up to the promise, due to a lack of directorial focus that lets everything slip out of control. But it's pretty good fun while it lasts.
Audience Reviews for The Calcium Kid
A very funny mockumentary with Orlando Bloom (he's so young I wouldnt doubt if it were actually made years earlier). A guy working out in a gym gets picked to be a sparring partner for the champion, said champion breaks his hand on guy's head days before big bout. Guy is now in big bout. Thats basically the set-up for this story that follows this unlikely boxer for a week as he prepares for the big international belt fight. A mockumentary done RIGHT!
Pretty decent little flick here....it's a mockumentary that follows a milk man/amateur boxer that got thrown into a heavyweight fight. The movie was actually quite funny and actually pretty good. Orlando Bloom was alright in it...I could tolerate him anyways. A movie many should check out and give a chance.
It was okay. Not Orlando's best performance. Omid Djalili was good. Not a movie I need to see ever again.
