This is a pretty decent look at the guy with a large part of the film being Tyson talking directly to the camera. The guy can say really good things and the guy can say really really bad things. It seems to have been that way his whole career. Being a fan and occasional participant in the sport in the 80's and 90's I was definitely a follower of Tyson. I was a follower and a fan up to the point when it was just too hard to be either. The film at least gives him a chance to give his side of some of the infamous moments, and if you let it, gives you a rough idea of why he is the person he is. Tyson is not a dumb man, he's just a man who has made some stupid decisions, and had a lot of stupid decisions made for him. The guy has probably spent more time studying and practicing his chosen profession than most people out there. I would take great comfort in knowing that my doctor was as dedicated to his job as Tyson once was.
As expected. there was some great old footage, including a young Tyson in the gym showing his freaky quickness and handspeed. There's some interesting stuff about the Trevor Berbick fight, and of course a slow motion replay of the KO by Douglas which was one of the most picture perfect combination KOs ever caught on tape.
