"Tyson" is a brutal and compelling documentary film about the life of controversial boxer Mike Tyson. The film consists of a collection of recent interviews with Mike Tyson mixed in with highlights of his fights and stock footage from news broadcasts concerning the more controversial moments of his life and career.
During the film Tyson speaks in depth about his childhood in Brownsville, his criminal activities during his adolescent years, his relationship with his trainer Cus D'Amato, his failed marriges, his children, his debts, his numerous fights and his hopes for the future.
All in all this documentary offers a unique insight into the mind of one of the most revered and controversial athletes of all time. But the real treat is in the extras. Boxing fans, such as myself, who grew up watching Tyson's fights will be thrilled to know that there is approximately four hours of ESPN's re-runs of Tyson's fights and some classic post fight interviews.
