Jim Brown All American
4 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this is a good documentary on a man who was once a top athlete and Hollywood actor. It told of Jim Brown's high and low points in both his life and careers. I liked Spike Lee's fact based reporting by using not only Mr. Brown to tell of the events but those who not only witnessed these events but were able to give a play-by-play description of the incidents. Fans that have followed Jim Brown's career may be upset that a few of his movies were not listed as well as credit for his bold decision to be a centerfold in one of America's most popular male magazines. Something that probably will not ever be duplicated by any other top athlete or movie star of this or any other time. I think a little more time should have been given to the 1970's time line of his life and film career. Great library collection for Jim Brown fans!
