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 boxer¹s 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 Holyfield¹s ear off with his teeth and tasting 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.
A very candid documentary of Mike Tyson past and present. The film does skip a few details and controversial moments, but many of the infamous incidents are dealt with. Mike just speaks his mind and there is no questioning as such, which may not seem like the ideal basis for a documentary. However you have the impression that he has nothing left to hide and shares his regrets openly. Sadly the DVD doesn't have any worthwhile extras.
