Sleazy/Nutty by talltale November 20, 2006 - 9:30 PM PST

SHADOWBOXER might aspire to the winner's circle of unintentional camp (Helen Mirren opposite Cuba Gooding: hel-lo!) were it not for the genuinely sentimental moments and the not quite bad-enough-to-be-good remainder of them. As it is, the movie manages to be ugly, violent, sleazy and nutty--plus you get a look at Stephen Dorff, full-frontal but condom-sheathed. Think of it as a kind of combination can't-miss-it but can't like it much, either.

For an example of a movie that shocks, provokes, amuses, scares, entertains and enlightens (which was probably the intention of "Shawdow Boxer" writer William Lipz and director Lee Daniels) try Wayne Kramer's "Running Scared" with Paul Walker and Vera Famiga. Now there's a crazy film that WORKS!
