A violent, street-fighting, extreme-stutterer becomes a great, powerful communicator. REVOLOUTION seems like just a great story, but it is the first movie in history to be structured around a shamanic ritual, which when experienced by certain audiences, creates an identification with the near death awakening of the lead character and results in radical and instantaneous transformation in the viewer. Lou's violent stutter doesn't get him the respect he deserves. When a head injury robs him of his boxing career and forces him into the far corner of his life, his only hope for the future is as a fight trainer.

Critic Reviews for Revoloution
A film with movement-sparking rather than moviemaking on its mind, Revoloution is a hopelessly muddled example of inspirational indie cinema.
Be aware that RevoLOUtion is a remarkably well-made 75-minute inspiromercial.
Not even a grumpy cameo by Burt Young and some lovely shots of the Brooklyn Bridge can save a movie as punch-drunk as its benighted protagonist.
The story is hopelessly contrived and the characters -- especially blacks and Italians -- laughingly stereotyped.
Less a movie than an 80-minute promo for a self-help program for the seriously desperate.
A bargain-basement independent which so abysmally examines the cathartic act of confronting personal demons that it inadvertently argues in favor of suppression and denial.
As a director, Carr has no sense of pacing (76 minutes seems like an eternity) and doesn't know when to tell Bret Carr the actor that his performance isn't working in a given scene. Carr's crying sequences look about as fake as a purple toupee.
