Product Description

FEROCIOUS - TYSON AS YOU VE NEVER SEEN HIM BEFORE THE SUN

EXPLOSIVE, BRUTAL AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY THIS IS THE STORY OF THE GREATEST FIGHTER WHO EVER LIVED

Welcome to the no-holds barred epic portrayal of the life of heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. Tyson: The Movie will take you on an incredible journey into the legendary boxer s life, from his days as a teenage drug dealer and thief in Brooklyn, New York to his meteoric rise to fame as the champion of the world and on to his shocking and outrageous decline.

For the first time in history, and in his own words, this unparalleled extremist takes you deep into his gritty world of crime, drug addiction and violence. Witness the monster fighting for his reputation and his very life while imprisoned for rape, tearing Evander Holyfield s ear off with his teeth and tasting defeat at the hands of Britain s Lennox Lewis... all before finally declaring bankruptcy and revealing the loss of a $400 million fortune.

The top of the world or the bottom of the ocean... there is no in-between.

Firstly, the BluRay aspect of this film. It was ok, however the early fights that are shown are just as dodgy in quality as I suspect they would be on DVD. Mike Tyson talking to camera is shown in immaculate clarity though. You can see every scar, mark and pore on his fight-worn and worldly-worn face.

All that aside, it was an interesting 90 minutes spent exclusively in the company of one of the most controversial sportsmen of all time. It's all here, from his rise to fame and fortune via petty and not-so-petty crime in New York, to his extraordinary destruction of anything that moved in the heavyweight ranks and his startling descent into madness and prison.

Looking back on his ferocious and prodigious talent through the many clips, you're reminded that, at his peak, this man was quite probably the greatest ever fighter. Astonishing speed, brutal power and an eye for weakness in an opponent's makeup are there for all to see. Nobody can argue with this man's talent.

His rapid decline, for reasons explained quite eloquently and with great insight by the man himself, is just as fascinating. From the death of his best friend and mentor Cus D'Amato, the unwise marriage to Robyn Givens, to the Holyfield injustices (as Tyson claims) and the conviction for rape and his descent into drug and alcohol abuse, his is a journey that nobody, not even himself, can fully comprehend.

An unique chance to have Tyson sit there and tell you what happened to a unique individual.

Come to your own conclusions as to whether he's a tortured and damanged boxing genius, or a more sinister character who hurt a lot more people than those he coolly despatched with brutal efficiency in the ring.

One thing's for sure, we will never see the like of this man again.

This is not as good as the other reviews indicate, at least not in my opinion anyway. It is a decent enough documentary but not worth the acolades it has been recieving. The structure of this film is too fragmented and I was hoping for a more indepth look at Tyson's career. Instead; this films starts with a painfully long monologue from Tyson about his upbringing, his school days and then his introduction into the sport of boxing. Sadly this film is too brief when it comes to Tyson's rise through the ranks and his jounrey to his first world title. Too little time is devoted to his first title reign and his first defeat. The second part of his career after his release from jail is also not sufficiently detailed at all. The film concentrates too much on Tysons defeats and not enough on his many victories and two separate title reigns.

What this film lacks on Mikes boxing career, is over-compensated for with Tyson's characteristics and complex personality. He is certainly up front on many issues although he comes across as someone who is only telling the truth as he likes to see it. The way the film is produced and edited makes Tyson look like a mentally unstable person which obviously is quite close to the truth. At times his frankness harms the way he comes across. Despite denying the rape allegations with anger and passion; his frank views on sexuality and women in general leaves little doubt about the truth. Honestly at times he comes across as a sexual deviant well capable of rape and violence against women. Despite this there are times during this documentary you do feel sorry for Tyson. He is a very complex individual. Is he a victim of circumstance or just a monster? Maybe a little of both.

For those looking for "Rise and Fall of Celebrity" type of movie - quite nice piece of work. For those who wanted to see some documentary fights or training sessions of Iron Mike, this DVD is a complete waste of money. Former trainer, former promotor, box journalist talk, talk and talk for some 80% of the time. If one was to sum up boxing documentary it would end up in some 5 minutes.
Not for the boxing fans, rather for tabloid lovers
