Doesn't break new ground, but milks the fascinating backdrop for all its formulaic potential and winds up compelling enough.

A loving tribute to the very real Black horse culture that exists in North Philadelphia.

There's something that's just enjoyable about watching such a strong ensemble bounce off each other, but Straub's script doesn't give them enough to work with...

An old-fashioned father-son story and none the worse for that, but there is something a little slick and subdued about the way the story is resolved.

It's hard not to love Concrete Cowboy just a little bit.

Concrete Cowboy is stirring when it really dives into specificity.

Works best as a vehicle into the little-known and -seen world of the riders, and it is most enjoyable when it is in that world.

Would probably work better as a documentary.

It's a little corny at times, but it looks good and has heart-and, let's be honest, Black cowboys are pretty damn cool.
