Just wanted to point something out to azrael979 then give my own person critique. Azrael979, you're wrong, you CAN in fact see WWE logos. I noticed it immediately when they showed the first bit of footage when he faced Flair. You can clearly see that they tried to shrink the picture, but they didn't do a good enough job because the tops of the W's are still clearly visible in the bottom left. Just wanted to let you know that you should maybe recheck things before you go accusing people of being wrong when you in fact are the wrong one

Now, on to my critique. I've been a wrestling fan for 20 years, and I've seen damn near every documentary that has come out. This, plain and simple, was the WORST i have seen. Let's start with the obvious of the acting was HORRIBLE. I caught myself rolling my eyes at many scenes wishing they would end. Next, the thing that bothered me a lot was that in the opening scene they introduce the show as being a WCW event, yet you can clearly see TNA plastered all over the place. Next problem was presentation. This movie jumps through a lot of periods of time, the least they could do is make it believable. The scenes of Sting's childhood don't reflect what things were like in the 60's. Not to mention, every scene that they show "Sting" driving when he first gets his break, there are recent car models all over the place. Then again when "Sting" is teaming with "Warrior", that match was supposed to take place in the 80's, yet if you look in the crowd you can see their modern clothing. One good example, is I saw a woman wear a number 27 Tennessee Titans jersey. Come on, time periods are a very basic and important part of a film. The last things that bothered me were simple. I feel like the filmmakers just found whoever was in the TNA locker room and whoever was on the street to portray characters. Sting is a rather tall guy. 6'4", yet the guy who plays him in this film looks like he may be 5'11" max. And they got Ryan Wilson to play "Warrior". Not a smart decision. The guy is close to 7 feet tall and towers over the actor playing Sting, when in actuality, the warrior is only 6'2" compared to Sting's 6'4". Really simple details like this will bother a true fan I think. All in all I will unfortunately have to say that this was a HORRIBLE attempt at a documentary. If you're going to document the career of such a historic and legendary figure in the wrestling business like Sting, I suggest making it look credible. Here's to hoping the WWE decides to make one about him that can take the sour taste out of my mouth from the TNA version
