A Very Good Biography Of An Icon
17 August 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Andre the Giant:Larger than Life was a nice production by the WWF. The late Andre was a huge part of the WWF in the 1980's and he really was larger than life. He was a huge icon in wrestling and died before his time. He probably would have been a bigger icon if he had not suffered from acromegaly (a condition that causes abnormal growth).

This is a real nice documentary about Andre's life in the ring and outside. We see various clips of his WWF career and there are comments by various WWF personalities.

Even if you have never watched Andre perform, I would recommend you watch this well made documentary.
