Great Documentary
1 March 2015 | by FilmBloodSee all my reviews

This is a great documentary film. He reveals his vision for a better career and a better life. You understand his dream and determination to be the best he can be. It shows the daily grind of practice and training. The tough physical therapy that pro athletics endure to make a recovery from a major injury. How he was suffers from poor personal choices and learned to become a better man. There was a time in my life when I despised Kobe Bryant. I saw him as a young cocky basketball star that didn't deserve the right to be a role model. After he won his 4th and 5th titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, I learned to respect him. After watching this film, I'd like to see him play and maybe even get the chance to meet him.
