The New York Times
The movie's "Rocky" formula proves irresistible anyway; unsurprisingly, New Line has commissioned Mr. Gordon to remake this story with actors. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
Ultimately Gordon's movie becomes both a hilarious story about an unbelievable collection of arrested-teenage morons and, yes, an inspiring fable of persistence and redemption. I haven't mentioned this movie's fabulous addition to the English language yet, so here it is: the verb "to chumpatize." Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
It's a depressing little kingdom, even when Gordon tries desperately to goose the drama with the requisite "Eye of the Tiger" riffs and some junior high-level palace intrigue. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Heartbreaking and hilarious. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Gordon's feature directorial debut mostly stops being about video-game obsession and turns into a film about what it takes to make it in America. Full Review
