Critic Reviews for Cradle of Champions
This triumphant film is almost an advertisement for the incredible power the sport has in working-class communities.
The result is both a stirring sports doc and a rich nonfiction drama, populated by characters who could have stepped out of a Damon Runyon story.
... while the mechanics of Cradle of Champions are strong and the individuals involved are captivating, the documentary as a whole can be hard to engage in without proper foreknowledge.
There are no exceptionally powerful scenes, but the usual business of getting to know the contenders and their families is made all the more engaging by the New York spirit of everyone involved.
The film hits the expected beats of the sports documentary pretty squarely. What makes it so compelling to watch is the choice of characters and the examination of what, beyond sporting glory, they are actually fighting for.
