From Prodigy To Hall Of Fame Player
16 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'd have to say this documentary was pretty good overall and certainly gave us a detailed portrait of who many people say is the greatest hockey player ever. Yes, the documentary could have been a little more exciting or fun with a more dynamic host as former goalie John Davidson is so bland here, but it still was fine to watch. There were a lot of a high points in this two-hour presentation; it wasn't just a straight interview.

In between the questions-and-answers, we see footage of "The Great One," hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, from the time he was a little boy through his youth hockey years, juniors, WHA and then, of course, NHL career. It's always amazing to see child prodigies and to see little "Gretz" skate through and around a whole team of players at the age of about 9 or 10 is pretty cool. The kid was superstar before he hit double-digits in age....and the Canadian newspapers knew it. We see some interesting headlines in stories written about young Wayne.

Without giving away everything, I appreciated Gretzky's honesty in the interview, found his father to be a big reason his son wound up so great (he's interviewed too) and enjoyed comments from past teammates and opponents (Mike Bossy of the Islanders was particularly good). Wayne constantly mentions his dad, so he must still be a huge influence on him. What Gretzky thought were his most important goals and team wins was a surprise, here and there.
