Shedding light on the remarkable life of troubled boxer Mike Tyson, Tyson is an at times shocking and to the end revealing documentary about one of sports most controversial figures. As revealed in the opening credits, with Mike Tyson also acting as producer, perhaps the output could be claimed as always tinted in favour of the fighter, but on a whole the film feels honest and truthful, and doesn’t hide some of the Tyson’s shocking views with respect to women, and his claims about the abuse and rape charges formerly held again him. Not forgetting the sporting side, however, and for boxing fans, this is a must buy. Talking about some of his most famous fights, it is very interesting to explore Tyson’s sporting attitude, and he makes for an entertaining watch come the closing credits.
