The Calcium Kid (2004) – Film Review

Filed under: Comedy,Film Review — smackamack @ 1:20 am


Plot:  The film is a mockumentary comedy, in which Bloom plays young milkman Jimmy. He is an amateur boxer who by a bizarre twist of events ends up fighting the world champion in his home town.

This film was definitely strange…an unsuccessful mocumentary.  Orlando Bloom plays a sweet kid whose bones are incredibly strong due to drinking milk everyday.  Some how, he manages to get into the position of taking on the world champion boxer.  Anyway, the film had a few funny momemts, but all in all it totally failed. 

I don’t exactly recommend this film, but if you love boxing, Orlando Bloom, and british mocumentaries…you should check it out.  I give this film 1.5/5 stars.
