Critic Reviews for Bruised
Halle Berry shows real filmmaking talent, but there's too much going on throughout the movie, when the story demands a more consistently minimalist treatment.
Kick butt, break rules, and direct your first feature after 50? Maybe Berry could be the next Bond.
The end is fairly predictable. The way it gets there is decidedly not.
Berry's skills behind the camera are a work in progress. In front of the lens, she is a virtuoso.
A film that uses the predictable beats of a fighter's comeback to create a showcase for hard-hitting performances.
