Best Documentary Ever!
7 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an amazing documentary from start to finish; the director did an excellent job with this one. Recommend it to everyone looking for a well done movie, if you're looking to rent a documentary this will not let you down. Many stories have been told about boxers, but this one hits home. Most Americans take the American Dream for granted but it takes a fighter to make us see the real challenge. These light weight boxers move fast and provides lots of action, Check this one out! The soundtrack of this movie really made you feel apart of this tale, so turn up the volume for this one.

Best film shown at the Grand Festival Award at the 2003 Berkeley Video & Film Festival
