Excellent Look at the Legend
15 December 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Lombardi (2010)

**** (out of 4)

Excellent documentary from HBO shows the highs and lows of football legend Vince Lombardi has he kicked out some in his early life before finally finding his calling as a coach. He ended up leading the Green Bay Packers to countless championship titles but the documentary also looks at several of his flaws including that legendary temper as well as his somewhat rocky relationship with his son. I think most people alive will at least know the name Lombardi and especially if they're familiar with football. The championship trophy is named after him so each year those millions who tune into the Super Bowl hear the name. I was somewhat familiar with him but this documentary served as a great way to get his life story. At 90-minutes we learn just about everything you'd want to know from his early days growing up to the final days of his life. You can see all the records he set and it's easy to see why he became such an icon but the most telling moments is seeing how many people interviewed here that still broke down crying after discussing his death at the age of 57. It's been forty-years since Lombardi passed away but the way the people reacted here you'd think it was just last week. To me this really tells what impact the legend had on their lives. The documentary gives us plenty of audio of the coach from various interviews he did and we also get a lot of people who were close to him. We hear from players, former teammates and many of his family members including the son who had a few battles with him. I think those familiar with Lombardi are going to know many of the stories being told here but I think they'll still have fun as the documentary is simply extremely well-made. Those not too familiar with the icon will certainly enjoy learning about him and what made him tick.
