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.

Among boxing movies, Raging Bull remains the all-time champ at breaking the mold. But Price of Glory fills it well.
January 1, 2000
First-time screenwriter Phil Berger, who has covered the sport for The New York Times, relies heavily on clichés but somehow manages to make this melodramatic story take off.

Despite the plot hokum and the self-consciously ethnic dialogue, this leisurely paced, handsomely shot film...is ultimately satisfying
January 1, 2000
The specificity of Glory's setting and the ethnicity of its characters enrich the story without moving it one iota away from a mainstream frame of reference.

There are enough such moments, thanks mainly to the actors, to make Price of Glory worth the price of a ticket. The conviction of those who made it overcomes some pretty blatant cliches.

Boxing has long held a special place in Chicano culture, and this is the first full-scale Hollywood effort to acknowledge that.
January 1, 2000
It creates a rooting interest, and most importantly, it has the force of Smits' intensity, which cannot be discounted.
