Delivering a fully committed, moving performance, Thomas Haden Church makes you pay attention to a figure you would otherwise pass by without a second thought.
Gritty authenticity goes up against cloying pathos - with the latter unfortunately emerging victorious - in the skid row drama "Cardboard Boxer."
Mr. Lee, straining, ends up delivering a sentimentalism that undermines Mr. Church's performance and this film's promise.
By emphasizing the uglier aspects of his most complex character, Lee turns an otherwise down-to-earth slice-of-life drama into an unconvincing morality play.
You should always be suspicious of homeless dramas that star Oscar-nominated Hollywood actors.
Disparate elements aren't enough to render Cardboard Boxer two films in one, but one film with a decisive and deep schism within.
Cardboard Boxer is an underdog fighter that, despite its considerate and often good performances, often finds its punches pulled. It's a shame, too, because it could've been a knockout.
Emotionally powerful, unsentimental drama of a homeless man in downtown L.A., built around a subtle and heartbreaking performance by Thomas Haden Church.
An interesting, slow burner type of indie movie, detailing the plight of the homeless and the lengths they will go to in order to survive. Thomas Haden Church is superb in this.
Well intentioned and perhaps overly so as it misses key elements to bring the story home. What remains is a sentimental piece that fails to manipulate genuine sentiment. It was nice seeing the more sordid parts of L.A. again.
