The Greatest Champion in the ring and a lamb to the slaughter ouside of the ring!
Verified purchase
Mike Tyson, a young boy bought up in the gutter who didn't know anything else but pain and loss, until a wise and compassionate man opened his heart to guide this young troubled lad, with knowledge, wisdom and love, he sculputed him into the greatest Champion the world has ever seen. Lightning fast, with a punch like a freight train, nothing could stop him. Ever, whilst he had his angel by his side, who protected him from the wolves. Sadly, his angel died.

Then came the wolves, trickery, scamming, lies, false promises, theft. Unfortunatley Mike was out smarted/dooped/scammed and taken for as much as they could take. Picking the meat off him outside the ring like dogs on a turkey carcus.
Yes, he did party, but not all wolves wear wolves cloths, sometimes they wear bikinis.
Once they saw the millions, everyone was out to scam him.
Life has great times and bad for all of us, some greater than others, some more terrible, but one thing no one can doubt in my opinoin. Mike Tyson was the greatest world champoin of boxing. I hope he has found peace and love, away from the wolves.

Open, transparent, informative and courageous documentary from Tyson.
Verified purchase
This open, transparent, informative and courageous documentary from Tyson. Which is more of a video journal coupled with footage from hit boxing career and notorious encounters with the press and accusations of criminal activity. It is a sit-down format, where Tyson gives his analysis of himself and his life and career, he acknowledges his mistakes and indulges his pride.

He is a truly enlightened man who knows himself very well, I wish him all the best in what ever he choses to do next. I know since this documentary he has embarked on a few successful business and has found passion and peace in life.

It's a privilege to hear him speak so openly and share this with us, because he really didn't have to, but he will inspire so many people with the lessons he's learned.

A legend far beyond a pair of fists.

It is sad to see idiots talk about Tyson as if he were anything but the greatest. I remember a time when I hated him, just because he was unbeatable. Ali was not the greatest, he just knew how to work the media. Tyson was in his prime, as a pure killing force, unbeatable. Unfortunately he could not just let it go.

The verson on Prime doesn't have the part where he speaks about the sudden death of hours daughter.
Verified purchase
This a great movie which provides a great insight into Tyson's suffering and how sensitive he was a child. Unfortunately for some reason the Prime Video version doesn't have the part where Tyson speaks about the sudden death of his daughter which I think is a poignant part of the film and is a shame it isn't in the Prime Video version. Still a great film and worth a watch for any boxing fan.

QUICK REVIEW

A must have for anyone and a definate must have for any boxing fan, A beautifully filmed documentry which takes you inside the mind of Mike Tyson, Showing many fights and highlights of his career. You will find it an emotional rollercoaster with many ups and downs. A must have for your movie collection. I guarantee this film will make you see Tyson in a different light.

SPECIAL FEATURES REVIEW

Around 4 hours of footage from every fight of Tysons career... what more can I say BRILLIANT!!!

GENERAL RUN THROUGH OF THE FILM

The film is not a conventional movie it is a documentry showing the rise and fall of former heavy weight Mike Tyson. It starts of by telling you about his childhood and how he use to get bullied and picked on, then one day he fought back and realised he could stand up for himself. It then turns on to how he got into crime as a child and went in and out of borstals and it was there where he began to box. Later on he is introduced to boxing trainer Cus D'Amato by Irish boxer Bobby Stewart, who takes him under his wing and plays the father figure which he so desperately needed. Cus D'Amato taught him discipline and self control which led him to win every amateur title. It then goes on to show how early into Tysons professional career he sadly lost his trainer/manager Cus D'Amato and how it affected Tyson in a very bad way. He then talks about his feelings towards women and his sexual encounters. It then goes on to him winning the World Heavy Weight championship of the world. In time things start to get bad around him, he gets married then shortly divorced to Robin Givens, he became involved with Don King, then he starts getting lazy and stops training as hard (or not at all at times) and partying alot. Things then go from bad to worse when he gets accused of rape (he talks about this in great detail) and found guilty (I don't believe he did it personally). The movie then goes onto his return to boxing after his time inside which some fights included Lennox Lewis, Frank Bruno and the legendary two fights against Evander Holyfield which ended with Tyson biting Holyfields ear (for good reasons as you will see watching the movie)

Not a Movie but a documentary.
Verified purchase
Firstly, I was dissapointed that this wasn't an actual "movie". It is a documentary about him with some good highlights of some of his major fights. Much of it is about him justifying himself and his behaviour.If you are a boxing fan, I think you will enjoy some of the insights but also if you are an armchair psycholigist.I enjoyed some of the boxing but I love knockout boxing.Most of this dvd is Tyson talking about himself while sitting on a sofa or walking along the beach.I enjoyed it but wouldn't watch it again in a hurry.

WOW - this guy could punch!!
Verified purchase
The rise and fall of, in my oppinion, the greatest fighter ever is in this movie very well documented. A completely honest fighter that tells his story was something that moved me. It is something special to be witness to a guy who has been so exposed in the media tell the absolute truth. I had like many an oppinion about Tyson, and this changed throughout the movie. From his glorydays to the biting incident, this is a man that have lived a very strange life. An extremist in everything.

The bonus material is something that i was very amazed by, it is several hours of his fights and a panel that talks between his fights that are very interessting.

A highly recommendable movie!

Tyson - Just a man after all
Verified purchase
Tyson has been labled many things over the years, 'Animal', 'Thug' being just a couple. The problem with lables, is that they tend to be oversimplified, and are often deliberate headline grabbing soundbites. As a previous review pointed out - take what you think you know about the man, and bin it. The thing here - all lables aside, is that it seems he is just a man after all, with all the foibles and imperfections that go along with that (I'm not downplaying the seriousness of some of the things that he did here - merely observing that in the same way that Kevin Spacy did not turn out to be Lucifer himself in Se7en, Mike Tyson deserves to be recognised as a human being, and not just objectified as a poster boy for society's ills). The moment that stood out for me, was after having lost to Lennox, and whilst Lennox is being interviewed by TV reporters, Mike leans in, and gently wipes some blood from the side of Lennox's face - a genuine jaw dropping moment of cinematic beauty. A stunning film, and well worth a look, for boxing and non boxing fans alike.
