    I was wanting to like this, was wanting to hear something a bit more substantial. Instead after what seemed like a 10 minute rant on how he kicked a boxers ass in a nightclub, I couldn't stand what was, in collaboration with a fawning audience, just a glorification of brutal violence. I just felt pity for the guy. I didn't want to watch past about 53 minutes. Still a thug at heart and II was wanting to like this, was wanting to hear something a bit more substantial.

    Should have been to Denmark but canceled for the 2nd time, wrote a email to ask why but no answer, so bad and lousy from a so called champ and his manager or who is in charge, yes I am disapointed, we have so rarely a chance to see big former personalities.

    The anecdotes slam into each other with a punch-drunk indifference--but director Spike Lee's style is a series of swift jabs. [18 Nov 2013, p.47]

    Lee directs the film in a way that spotlights Tyson’s humor and a degree of articulation that probably still surprises a lot of people.

    Here, he proves himself a solid entertainer with a fascinating story, but never comes across as fully believable, as if he’s actually sharing the whole story.
