  • As he tells the story of a pair of teenage brothers looking to qualify for the Olympic boxing team and an even younger fighter trying to overcome a troubled childhood, Frimmer in essence loses the forest for the trees.

  • The fights are unexciting and the brothers uncharismatic, yet the film finds a soft, soulful center...

    August 18, 2011 | Rating: 3/5
  • Born and Bred bungles a promising subject with an overreliance on suspiciously on-the-nose, thesis-spouting talking heads.

    August 18, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • By valuing the complexity of individuals' stories over superficial competition drama, Born and Bred bucks the unwelcome nonfiction trend fostered by Spellbound.

  • [Frimmer's] meandering, repetitive interviews dilute the sport's intensity, while his rigorously linear approach buries the suspense.

  • Although done to death, there's a great subject here, unfortunately buried by its director's indifferent skills and overall poor choices.
