5.0 out of 5 stars A World Champion Film, 14 Nov 2007
This review is from: Ricky Hatton - A Life Story [DVD] (DVD)
In the history of boxing film/documentaries 'Ricky Hatton A Life Story' could have been a loser. The brief outline on the back of the dvd does not bode well: family interviews, career achievements, fight details.

Play the 1hour 47 minute film, however, and you will be left gasping. I have never been a fan of the 'Rocky' films and even Scorsese's 'Raging Bull' lingers on the personality too much. It was always 'When We Were Kings' that enthralled me with its differing perspectives closing-in on one particular fight. 'Ricky Hatton A Life Story' is a complete all rounder with insight, narrative progression, visual flair and intimate reality. As soon as I got a tingle up the spine when we see kid Hatton's first boxing gym, I was hooked. From those two fists of fury to the 'defining fight' against Kostya Tszyu.

The man, the boxer, the world champion. Born to win, a privileged insight into the life of a fiend, a monster, a viscious brawling Monarch. A man who possesses the ring he was born to preside over with the mind of a ruthless assassin: the Hitman Ricky Hatton. Mayweather's nightmare on dvd. I love this film.

Give it up Ricky.
Before the game beats you.
Mayweather told you.
There is a way to win Ricky.
Respect the game.
Move on not back.
