Critic Reviews for Cardboard Boxer
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.
Audience Reviews for Cardboard Boxer
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.
