I am not a big boxing fan but I have always been a Mike Tyson fan. I already knew much of his life story, but I figured this would be a great chance to hear it from the man himself. I just wish it would have been more entertaining.
The audio seems very poor. Granted, Tyson has a very weird way of speaking, but I don't normally have this much trouble understanding him. This is very hard to watch without subtitles.
Also, this was directed by Spike Lee and Mike mentions him several times. It seems that Spike has influenced Mike with bad feelings about white people. In fact, I think many of the lines were written for Mike.
Mike does a good job of performing despite having a bit of a manic presence. I still respect him, I just maybe like him a little less after seeing this.
