An earnest documentary about upstart boxers from the ghetto.
26 December 2000 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"On The Ropes" provides a rare but shallow look into the brutal sport of boxing by focusing on the lives three young boxers and their trainer. At the center of the film is Harry Keitt, a man with a checkered past whose quest to help boost kids-gone-wrong from the projects into a productive life via the ring is his personal salvation. What this earnest film does best is demonstrate how boxing can provide structure, discipline, purpose, and the hope of success and greatness for ghetto kids who have what it takes. The film also clearly shows what it takes it a lot.
