  1. 90
    As smooth and powerfully packed as its protagonist.
  2. 83
    The chief problem with Shadow Boxers is that it's too short.
  3. Savvy, unflinching, often bloody documentary.
  4. 63
    A compelling and beautifully photographed documentary.
  5. What makes Shadow Boxers special is how Bankowsky restores the woman's touch that always seems intentionally excised from coverage of the sport without comprising their participation in the sport.
  6. 60
    Compensates with a sharp sense of rhythm, using hip-hop and turntablist sounds by Zoel to fuel Anthony Hardwick and Tony Wolberg's aggressive cinematography.
