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 New York to his meteoric rise to fame as the champion of the world and through to his shocking, 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. Labelled a "monster" by the media, you’ll witness Tyson fighting for his reputation and his very life while imprisoned for rape, tearing the ear off Evander Holyfield with his bare teeth and tasting painful defeat at the hands of Britain’s Lennox Lewis... The top of the world or the bottom of the ocean... there is no in-between.
well produced. I really like Mike Tyson after this, it shows he is thoughtfull and intelligent, but also a machine-in the ring. He is more honest than most. A great film.
Whether you are a Tyson fan or simply intrigued by the man,the myth and the legend,this is essential viewing.In many ways it is like sitting in on a psychiatry session as Mike let's his feelings,thoughts and memories flood out.Sometimes funny,sometimes shocking,occasionaly heartwarming,often sad but always fascinating-You have to see this film!
This film offers the viewer a glimpse of Tyson's psyche, his motivations and deepest afflictions. For anybody who wants a rare insight into the mind of a world-class fighter this is the film to watch!
I think there is a good balance of interviews and fight sequences; this film is not just a highlight reel of Tyson's KO's and that is what makes it an unseen treat for the viewer. It is also fascinating to hear of his experiences with Cus, and how the trainer moulded the young, hostile Tyson into a professional knockout machine.
For boxing fans, or anybody who finds the man interesting (which is most of the public, regardless of whether they love or hate him) this is a riveting watch.
