Critic Reviews for Born and Bred
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...
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.
