Orlando Bloom fans onlyBy a customer from East Lothian, Scotland , 19 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Straight from the start it's clear that Orlando Bloom is very uncomfortable - as was I watching it! This kind of comedy is clearly not his strong point. The script was bad, the acting was poor. The film really doesn't have much going for it. Only rent if you are a die hard Orlando fan.

Just plain awfulBy Tophmcg (6 reviews) from Newcastle upon Tyne , 10 Mar 2011Orlando Bloom is at his all time worst. The director should be ashamed at the mockumentary style which he fails to pull off. Another example of how British cinema slips further into the gutter.
Felt BritishBy TheGingerKing (1 review) from Bolton , 04 Nov 2009Recently with moving into student flat i have been unable to watch TV and have been watching films but my genre of movies is the good old british films such as snatch, this is england, rock 'n' rolla etc so i thought i would give this film a chance, it is exactly what i expected a good film that shows the true nature of a british film.
I must admit it gave a different view with it being based on a documentary which is not what films are usually aimed at but i felt that this gave the film its own unique factor.
based on a milk man that accidentally knocked out a star boxer who was preparing for his champion fight this film gives a good viewing of what britain can really achieve from day to day people that have a hidden talent and with orlando bloom acting as he calcium kid it gives a good look at what the typical lifestyle of a regular person in britain is really made of.
i felt this film had a funny steak but also in some cases a serious feel to it.
alot of people have knocked this film but i feel after watching the calcium kid that if you are into watching a good british film such as rock 'n' rolla, green street, the crew then this film will allow you to sit back and take a break from all the violence and action that is shown in these example movies and let you have a giggle at what reality is really like.
overall a good film and quite funny, i would definatly recommend this film to a friend.

Good god noBy a customer from Sheffield , 14 Dec 2008This film is an unmitigated horror. Nothing to commend about it. Bad story line and really bad acting.
