JCPJD's rating of the film Tyson

Just Brilliant! Tyson is a warrior-poet who has lived more in one life than most could even contemplate. I do not take all of Tyson's statements as truth, but I appreciate the journey he has clearly gone through. The storytelling is superb (look at the walk to the ring sequence where he goes from terrified kid to a God) and full of vigour. This made me see boxing for the first time. Better than 'When We Were Kings'.
