Audience Reviews for Cardboard Boxer

  • Nov 27, 2016
    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.
