Anna Maria Basquez, of The Coloradoan wrote of “Steel Toes” that it is “a sharp intensity... akin to that of a great prison film”... “this two man-man [drama] will be the fastest ninety minutes of your life”
“In that short time, they take you with them on a rising slope of tension and anxiety while their characters realize that they’ve been stuck, maybe for years, in their own self-destructive ways.”
