The road to glory is often paved with good intentions, but so is the path to mediocrity, which exactly where Carlos Avila's well-meaning drama heads in no time.

August 1, 2003
...generally entertaining, in a movie-of-the-week sort of way.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

While the intentions are good, Price of Glory is never confident enough to push the boundaries of the sports drama mold.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
January 1, 2000
Not particularly well acted, it overstays its welcome and proves simultaneously predictable as a sports film and unconvincing as family drama.

What's peculiar is that the film doesn't build toward anything because even as the boxing careers flourish, the character of Arturo drags everything down.

[Smits and Seda] give the movie more heart than was probably on the page, and their powerful presence nearly ennobles the cornball material.
January 1, 2000
The result, though polished and professional, ultimately relies on too many stock situations to evoke the desired emotional impact...
January 1, 2000
The acting is top-notch, especially Smits in his first post-NYPD role.
January 1, 2000
The movie is k-o'd in the first round by a cliche-filled script with dialogue that has a higher specific gravity than a heavyweight contender.

As a piece of entertainment the film is quite nicely put together.

January 1, 2000
It may know what it's supposed to do to succeed, but is too flat-footed, throws too many weak punches, and telegraphs most every move to the point that it will never have a chance of being seen as a champion.
January 1, 2000
Directing newcomer Carlos Avila doesn't always generate the emotional impact the drama deserves; it has the look and feel of a nondescript television film.

Price of Glory wins a few rounds, but, unlike The Set Up, The Hurricane or Raging Bull, it loses the fight.
January 1, 2000
Very obvious, very earnest and a little overwrought.
January 1, 2000
Cliches fly faster than fists in Price of Glory, an old-fashioned boxing movie that can't really go the distance.

Goes down for the count in a hodgepodge of emotions and familiar boxing-movie conventions.
January 1, 2000
As the film unspools to the final reels, building to a predictable resolution with yet another kinetic, well-filmed fight sequence, it's hard not to be absorbed by the story of the Fighting Ortegas.
