A couple of years ago, a disaster like Shadow boxer - with the hapless Cuba Gooding Jr. scraping below the bottom of the barrel - would have gone straight to video or been buried on an obscure cable channel at 3 a.m.

Those rating it high must be ringers for the distributors - this was trash. Outside of a couple of tepid chuckles at a sex scene in a doctor's office, the look on our faces was boredom. Other sex scenes were contrived, a pointless plot Those rating it high must be ringers for the distributors - this was trash. Outside of a couple of tepid chuckles at a sex scene in a doctor's office, the look on our faces was boredom. Other sex scenes were contrived, a pointless plot and the second female lead was trying too hard to look like Angelina Jolie--don't waste your time - rent/buy/download something else. Anyone's life is more precious than spending it on this dreck. Expand

This film is more of an elaborate set of symptoms than an actual movie. It is not enough to say that it is unitentionally funny (because the fillmaker is so un-selfaware) or distubingly gruesome (because the fillmaker makes us wallow in his This film is more of an elaborate set of symptoms than an actual movie. It is not enough to say that it is unitentionally funny (because the fillmaker is so un-selfaware) or distubingly gruesome (because the fillmaker makes us wallow in his anal-sadistic fantasy) it is neccessary to say that an industry that allows something as puerile and hateful as this to be made with some gifted actors and first-rate technical people has its steering mechanism broken. Why was this sick man allowed to make a movie? How did he find the money and obtain the cooperation of so many otherwise seemigly sensible people? Why didn't anyone stop him? [***SPOILERS***] The two most ridiculous scenes: 1) Vanessa Ferlito's water breaking. 2) The tough-guy banter between the male models who guard her. Expand

Whoever cast this needs to find a new job. Helen Mirren as a serial killer? Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a doctor? Mo'Nique as his girlfriend? With all the names popping up on the screen you would figure that the movie would have to be goodWhoever cast this needs to find a new job. Helen Mirren as a serial killer? Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a doctor? Mo'Nique as his girlfriend? With all the names popping up on the screen you would figure that the movie would have to be good otherwise why would these actors have signed on, right? Wrong. As stated the casting was way off, the odd story which includes Gooding and Mirren as step-son and mother-in-law in a relationship with each other just doesn't work. Cuba can act we have all seen it but in Shadowboxer he felt stale and out of place. Not much good I can say about this so I will just end it there. Expand
