It knocks "ROCKY" out cold!
29 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

My family and I loved this movie. Rick Schroder is a frickin' genius! My boys love boxing, so Black Cloud was a real treat. This Jimmy Gambina guy that choreographed the boxing scenes knows his stuff. My wife loved the movie for other reasons: the hunky dudes, Tim McGraw, the native Americans, the cinema photography and the story line. It was a tear jerker in a few scenes, then knock-down funny in others. I can't believe this is Rick Schroder's first directing gig - he came across as a seasoned director in Black Cloud. The acting was great. This Julie Jones girl - WOW - where did she come from?!!! We will see it again this week! Once it comes out on DVD, we will definitely own it.
