Critic Reviews for The Kid: Chamaco

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

  • Chamaco (The Kid) is a boxing drama with an unusually high ring IQ.

    Aug 26, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • We're treated to subplots involving Abner's meth-addicted girlfriend and a romance between his prostitute sister and his trainer, which leads to a scene of such melodramatic absurdity that it negates any remaining shred of narrative credibility.

  • Despite a gratingly clichéd soundtrack and a violent climax that feels wholly unearned, "The Kid" has an awkward earnestness that's very endearing.

    Aug 6, 2010 | Rating: 3/5
  • Chamaco has all the bumps and bruises of a boxing-themed film, but its story is also a tender one about a young man coming of age, and a father and son mending a frayed relationship.
