The Skladanowsky brothers were the first movie makers from my country and this short film which is exactly what it says it is: a boxing kangaroo going against a man. It's mildly entertaining, although it becomes a bit repetitive towards the end. Thy style is surely interesting to watch. The kangaroo often uses its height advantage in pushing down the opponent. I wonder if that is where Klitschko saw his technique first. Sometimes the movements from the animal almost look like more than wrestling or judo than boxing, but this film is a nice change compared to all the boxing movies made back then, just like the one from the year before that has two boxing cats.
