Nistico seems to have achieved what he wanted: He validates the question, If the American dream was stolen, wouldn't you want to steal it back?

Nistico's clich├ęd, sledgehammer dialogue alone is enough to shut this one down.

The film scores as an honest and often disturbing portrait of contemporary working class life, and it certainly deserves to be seen.

Audience Reviews for Blue Collar Boys

½

For its reported $75,000 budget, BLUE COLLAR BOYS is an accomplishment - grim poetry about the current recession with a bleak message that the working class can only be pushed so far. There are some flaws with the script that overindulges in its misery without providing any relief, but BLUE COLLAR BOYS is a searing reflection of our times.
