Movie Reviews

Split decision very inspirational
Gary G. Kelly | 01/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary is well worth the watch. It is a good example of what can be accomplished in America against what would seem unsurmaountalble odds. Reccommend highly for boxing and non boxing fans."

"What a great film to catch you up in a real story and make you stop and think twice about how cavalierly we make and apply laws that there's no chance will ever affect us personally."
Que lucha mas duro! Chavez's fight is worth a watch
jennifersalomon | Houston, TX, USA | 03/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chavez's story is inspiring - how hard a person will fight just to be able to continue on a long, trying road to his goal is enough to make even the laziest want to get up in the morning and take on the day. Even if you are not a boxing fan, Split Decision will engage you on the most basic level: we were all immigrants once, but few of us had it this hard. You will root for Chavez as you watch a man caught between two countries and stopped short from grabbing the title he felt he deserved. An arrested development tale with a happy ending, this film is for anyone who loves boxing or cross-cultural issues."
