    Complaints? None, except perhaps a wish for more length, and a little more depth.
  2. The movie, while heartfelt and vividly shot, takes too many rote genre turns.
  3. When the film suddenly turns into "Rocky" -- as all boxing films of the past two decades invariably do -- it invalidates its theme.

    Despite excellent performances all around, the actors can't overcome the script's limitations.

    It's not easy to go 12 rounds against a cliche-ridden story like Price of Glory and remain standing. But somehow stars Jimmy Smits and Jon Seda, and first-time director Carlos Avila, manage to survive.

    Not a very good movie; it's sentimental, pandering and psychologically anorexic.
  7. Contrived and contrived sloppily, this self-adoring soap even manages to make its all-Hispanic cast seem unconvincing -- except for Seda.
