Better than I expected
18 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I admit I didn't expect much out of a biography on Andre The Giant, but once I watched it I was surprised on how interesting and heartwarming it all was. I was never a big fan of Andre The Giant, yet I'm a big fan of wrestling. This made become a little more of an Andre The Giant fan and a little more of a wrestling fan. I recommend this to anyone who likes wrestling or anyone who just likes to watch a good biography.
