Very well done, even exceptional
19 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even if you're not a boxing fan (I used to be), you'll find this extremely well-done, well-documented and emotionally-moving exposure of the classic 'Mancini-Kim' fight on Nov 18th, 1982 at Ceasar's Palace in Las Vegas. And, the long-lived, cross-Pacific aftermath-and-travel for Kim's family to visit Ray for a decent dose of closure with him. If you chose to watch, consider it a self-propelled 'gift' to yourself within your recent viewings. I was 'riveted' during my own, and remain so even after the credits disappeared from the screen today. Keep a hankie nearby, you'll need it. One of the best I've seen. ~Bob Shank, Tucson AZ
