About the Movie
From abject poverty to becoming a ten time boxing world champion and history’s first boxing congressman, international icon Manny Pacquiao is the definition of a Cinderella story. In the Philippines, he first entered the ring as a sixteen year old weighing 98 pounds with the goal of earning money to feed his family. Now, almost twenty years later, when he fights, the country of 100 million people comes to a complete standstill to watch. Today at the height of his career, he is faced with maneuvering an unscrupulous sport and political duties, while still maintaining a personal life. The question now is what bridge is too far for Manny Pacquiao to cross?

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Banal, stentorian narration by Liam Neeson ("Once victory is stolen from you, what are you left with?") mostly gives the sense that it's the viewer being carried around the ring.
Rotten: It makes for a choppy, unsatisfying portrait when any topic outside the worshipful career momentum and expected dazzling fight footage - personal demons, his growth in a corrupt sport, the weight of being an icon - is addressed.
Rotten: Even as a promotional piece, Manny is too thin a nonfiction portrait of Manny Pacquiao, one of the greatest boxers of the modern era and the only one in history to win titles in eight different weight classes.
Rotten: Only a fool would say it to his face, but eight-time divisional boxing champ Manny (Pacman) Pacquiao has a limp swing as a documentary subject.
Such an awe-inspiring movie. So much detail and never seen before footage of his life. Definitely recommend to everyone.
Best Ever !!!!
Such an inspiring movie.
