Takashi used to wrestle and take himself seriously, but that he was a comic figure is now apparent to all including himself with his mask and get-up since he officially wrestles as a joke. He has not told his son what he does for a living, but the boy finds out and lies to his school-mate about his father's line of work.Written by
And by great I don't mean acting or anything but it's clear what you're getting from the start-an explanation of pro wrestling's system of heels and faces that's clear for anyone to understand. The acting is pretty good, directing and music are wonderful and this was a great vehicle for New Japan Pro Wrestling to get their stars over in a more personal way. More sentimental and overall better than anything WWE has put out in movies involving wrestlers. Highly recommended:)
