    Emotionally accessible, expertly crafted film about boxing, brothers, family, the Cold War, hard work and redemption. This is a very uplifting movie about real life. The fight footage is spectacular, and the supporting characters in who surround the Klitschko Brothers including the recently passed Emmanuel Stewart shine with humanity and spirit, while dedicating their lives to the real-life perils of professional boxing. The film is directed and delivered by a German crew, so it has a less than familiar sensibility for American audiences. The Blu-Ray is highly recommended. Expand

    The indomitable siblings' unusual background, huge size and highly developed intellects, as well as the dramatic ups, downs and rebounds of their interwoven sagas, should result in a fascinating dual biodoc. But the two-hour pic's lack of economy makes for heavy slogging, with no boxing minutiae too small for exhaustive exposition.

    Articulate, thoughtful and funny - hearing Vitali talk about getting used to 100 kinds of cheese in the West is a real pleasure - the Klitschkos are a treat to spend conversational time with. Just don't think of joining them in the ring.

    For those who care about the winning and losing of championship belts, the film's slow-motion attention to pugilistic style and powerhouse punches is thrillingly instructive.
