About the Movie

The most ferocious boxer to ever step inside the ring, MIKE TYSON was at age 20 the youngest heavyweight champion in history. But within a few short years, the baddest man on the planet was himself on the ropes, the victim of his own rage and fear. Told exclusively through the compelling words and commentary of Iron Mike himself, Tyson is a powerfully frank and provocative look at one of the most controversial and misunderstood sports figures of all time.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Half-appealing, half-pathetic. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Dec 17, 2009

Fresh: The closest most of us will ever come to an intimate chat with the champ. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: I can't say I've ever wanted to be in Mike Tyson's head, but this documentary by James Toback certainly took me there, and I won't soon forget it. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It all adds up to a fascinating psychological study, a film that goes beyond both the public persona and the fighter's own spin to get at the frightened, angry, explosive, yet utterly understandable boy who became a very troubled and very public man. – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, Jun 26, 2009

Kid Dynamite!

This movie was enlightening! Mike is humble and comfortable in this movie, and tells it like it is. After you see this, you will be surprised. Probably, you will change your opinion about him, and you will understand him much more! Very interesting!

Must buy

I got a early copy of the movie and I must say the movie is great. There is parts that i got choked up on when he starts to think about his friend and mentor Gus! Mike really comes clean on everything about his life and this is really worth getting when it comes out.

Great Story!

Great story about one of the best! I will wait for the price to go down before I buy it though.
