  • Summary: Black Cloud is an inspirational story about a young American Indian boxer who overcomes personal challenges as he comes to terms with his heritage while fighting his way for a spot on the US Olympic boxing team. (Old Post Films)

  1. Positive: 1 out of 3
  2. Negative: 1 out of 3
  1. There's considerable universality in Black Cloud's plight, yet Schroder makes it personal and deeply felt. In a direct, unpretentious manner, Black Cloud expresses most effectively its hero's struggle with himself.
  2. 60
    A determinedly old-fashioned boxing/coming-of-age film, only perfunctorily hitting its marks.
  3. 38
    But this film, with its many cliches and borrowed substitutes for creativity, suggests his (Schroder) career in the boxing arena might have peaked with ''The Champ."
