Storyline

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.

DIY satori (NYC style)
22 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Revoloution' is a beautifully paced film that hooks you from the opening scene and never bogs down in New Age cheesiness but hews closer to the Buddhist mandate of seeing things as they are and doing what has to be done. It reminded me of my first experience with yogurt: I thought I would be put off by the experience and ended up happily surprised.

There are plenty of things for the serious film fan to savor: 'Rocky' references and re-workings (including music by Bill Conti, a cameo by Burt Young, and the whole 'Rocky' of the soul vibe), lively camera work (including some great shots of NYC locales), and engaging and believable performances.
