Critic Reviews for The Calcium Kid

All Critics (5)

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.

April 9, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Bloom gives a performance that's as bland as a pint of semi-skimmed.
