    Great, great documentary. The Tyson story, from his own perspective. He gets emotional, which I wouldnt have expected. I never disliked him; I was too young to remember anything about Tyson from his heyday. I never gave him much thought, but just always figured he was, as he puts it in another interview, 'a big strong n*gger that knocks out people and rapes people and rips off people's shit.' He actually comes off as a genuinely well-meaning but misunderstood person that had an unfortunate upbringing and wasnt totally prepared to be on top of the world at 20 years old, then was accused and convicted of something he didnt do, which was the beginning of the end for him; Pre- and post-prison Tyson are two completely different people. Totally changed my opinion on the man.

    i loved the film, seeing mike tyson in a personal view was a shocker, i loved watching highlights of his fights and IMO best heavy weight of time. he was young and let people manipulate him. he never was able to get a break in life.

    Started it this morning but havent finished it. Alot of people do write tyson off as a Big Dumb Ni**er that fights like an animal. Truth is that he was a truely skilled fighter that really had a fucked up upbringing and was manipulated by just about everyone in his life post-constantine.

    While that doesnt justify the fucked up stuff he has done in his life, it does shed light on how someone's environment can shape them and their image.

    I'll have to check that one out, as well as the Tyson doc. Sounds like good stuff.
