Life story is a bit too thin for a full length movie.

I found this movie to have a lot of potential and it really looked good but it didn’t keep my attention for long since it needed more substance and action. This movie was very quiet at times and I almost fell asleep since some of the scenes had no talking.... when the movie got my attention it didn’t go anywhere.... my two cents

Buoyed by sensitive and ferocious ensemble turns, “Honey Boy” is a cinematic salve for a tortured soul, in many regards a powerful vehicle for its star-screenwriter-subject and a vibrant narrative debut for documentary and video artist Har’el.

It’s an intensely personal project for writer and star Shia LaBeouf, one that walks a thin tightrope, but pays off beautifully.

Taking on tricky subject matter with gravity and depth, Honey Boy can’t be dismissed as yet another LaBeouf caper. It’s a reminder of a talent that, despite its own worst instincts, refuses to be snuffed out.
