(toronto.com) Boom is a bizarre hybrid of the MMA-flavored family drama Warrior and
every high school teacher movie ever made, from Mr. Holland's Opus and
Dead Poets Society to last month's Won't Back Down. The lack of any sort
of developed family dynamics or fleshed-out characters makes it
impossible to connect with Boom on the same level as viewers did with
Warrior, and the MMA fight scenes aren't nearly beefy enough to make up
for what the movie lacks in humor, subtlety, realism, or authenticity.
