Critic Reviews

  1. 50
    All of this has a fascination, and yet Red Trousers is a jumbled and unsatisfying documentary.
  2. 50
    Brave, gifted, haunted and poor, these kids are so heartbreaking that you wish Shou had the good sense to give their lives the attention he lavishes on himself.
  3. 50
    As its awkward subtitle suggests, the execution is more than a little sloppy.
  4. Offers a lively but jumbled insider's view of a world of great talent and greater risk.
  5. 60
    Shou focuses on a meaty subject, and he has an insider's access to the world he's exploring. But his behind-the-scenes film doesn't spend nearly enough time behind the scenes.
  6. 50
    Robin Shou frequently cuts to scenes from one of his recent movies, adding to the impression that this is a vanity reel.
  7. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    An awkward blend of documentary and genre pic.
