Truthful, moving and worth while.
10 January 2013 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

I've been following the creation of this film for quite some time and finally had a chance to check it out last night.

After seeing it, I can't speak highly enough of the team who created the film and the many people who supported Evan. Its a great look at his life that is brutally truthful, just the way Evan would have wanted.

This isn't an MMA film. It's really a study of a great person who struggled with many demons but at his core was a great person. Evan wanted the best for everyone and wanted to figure out a way to bring that to life. This film helped him do that years after his death.
