Critic Reviews for Poor Boy's Game
Poor Boy's Game is a movie built around a boxing match, but its most powerful scenes involve no jabs or hooks.
[Director Clement] Virgo and co-writer Chaz Thorne look beyond the usual character arcs, adding fresh and urgent perspective to a socially aware and emotionally intense movie.
A bold script improves this drama about masculinity and bigotry in a small community. It also helps to have a terrific actor like Danny Glover on board.
The film does not pull its punches, and though uneven, is compelling.
Audience Reviews for Poor Boy's Game
Good movie, about a poor community trying to come to grips with their differences. Taking it out on each other in the form of racial violence. A couple people decide to try and settle up with a boxing match. Crowd gets out of hand when the main victim tries to stop fight.
Somewhat sappy, but a
pretty good movie, shot in Halifax, Nova Scotia did not know they had gang or racial problems in Halifax I really had a nice time on my visits there
