Kim v Mancini
26 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Champion is about the life and death of Korean boxer Deuk-Gu Kim in the boxing ring. The film went into great detail about Kim's life and times during the 1980s and outlined how Kim came to be a great boxer. Kim's family was also depicted in this film. Boom Boom Mancini was the boxer that injured Kim in such a way as to cause his death. If you're looking for a biography about Kim, then this film is for you. You will know everything you ever wanted to know about Kim. The film was well made as a class B+ with many good attributes. It is subtitled in most places so you do have to read the dialog. Get the DVD if you have some time to kill.
