User Reviews

Worth Viewing, Excellent Film
28 October 2012 | by usscoutingSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed Born and Bred. The filmmaker did a great job covering a trainer of two twin boxers as well as a young fighter with a rough childhood.

It was very inspirational to see the path of the twin fighters, and gave you a good sense of the sacrifices kids go through at the youth boxing level. I also enjoyed the interviews, particular from Teddy Atlas.

I also felt the film picked up steam as it went along. I look forward to following the careers of the young fighters in this film.

This is a great film for people interested in both sports and socio- cultural documentaries.
