Interesting story, but too many technical gaffes
23 February 2004 | by (Louisville KY) – See all my reviews

You don't see many movies about cockfighting, so right away one is drawn into an unfamiliar world with interesting possibilities. Indeed, the first hour or so is mildly entertaining. But it loses it in the third act with unrealistic story twists, and the many technical gaffes throughout (such as film equipment reflections and wildly varying boy's hair length for a story taking place in the course of one day) are quite distracting. A good but flawed effort.
