Unfortunately not Bumfights
16 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

This movie is incredibly boring, and not very well made. No character development, shaky cam for no reason, long shots of nothing. There is never explained who the main character is, the kids recruiting him for fighting are vilified in the most amateurish way.

The plot is not so much about the the fighting (very few scenes badly done), it is more about the homeless man, his environment and his delusions, using an imaginary friend to... talk to, I guess. I would go so far as to say the plot is really absent.

In the end the director uses a cheap surprise ending (which is predictable enough) and heavy music to evoke an emotional response.

No reviews yet and the film has a rating of 7.9, I wish I could say I give 1 star to alleviate this, but the reality of the situation is "Cardboard Boxer" is garbage.
