Movie Info

A violent, street-fighting, extreme-stutterer becomes a great, powerful communicator. REVOLOUTION seems like just a great story, but it is the first movie in history to be structured around a shamanic ritual, which when experienced by certain audiences, creates an identification with the near death awakening of the lead character and results in radical and instantaneous transformation in the viewer. Lou's violent stutter doesn't get him the respect he deserves. When a head injury robs him of his boxing career and forces him into the far corner of his life, his only hope for the future is as a fight trainer. But the pressure of 30 second round breaks makes him completely unintelligible, and useless as a coach. When he is confronted with the fact that his stutter may be due to his past instead of his mouth, he confronts his demons by creating a situation on the streets of his neighborhood that has never been seen in a motion picture before.


Critic Reviews for Revoloution

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

A film with movement-sparking rather than moviemaking on its mind, Revoloution is a hopelessly muddled example of inspirational indie cinema.

Be aware that RevoLOUtion is a remarkably well-made 75-minute inspiromercial.

Not even a grumpy cameo by Burt Young and some lovely shots of the Brooklyn Bridge can save a movie as punch-drunk as its benighted protagonist.

The story is hopelessly contrived and the characters -- especially blacks and Italians -- laughingly stereotyped.

Less a movie than an 80-minute promo for a self-help program for the seriously desperate.
