Default Re: Klitschko

watched it, thought it was good & yes showed more of the negatives of their careers than I was expecting.

Hadnt realised they'd had a slight falling out.

Good watch.

IMDB says Language: German | Russian | English so I believe its only english when guys like Brewater or Byrd speak. Otherwise its either german (for the most part, its a german production) or russian.

Talking Re: Klitschko

Just been reading the thread when I got my fathers day presents handed to me. To my surprise it was this Klitschko DVD and Johnny Tapias book. Made my day by far

If it's just about them being great humanitarians and classy, fair competitors, I'd rather watch paint dry.
As always Jack, you say it the way you see it.

I completely agree, I think the problem for a lot of these so called fans have not followed the sport long enough to know any better.

Not sure who you're actually referring to with this statement mate, but I for one have been following boxing for about the last twenty years and most definitely consider myself a 'fan'.

I am well aware of the corruption and bull **** that has blighted the sport, it's nothing new and has existed since it actually began as a profession i may add.

What I also know is a well produced and interesting documentary when I see one, and this feature is most definitely that.

It does touch on some of the more unsavoury parts of their respective careers, abeit relatively lightly, but at the same time it does not simply ignore everything negative as with many of these promotional type celebrity films (not just boxing).

Bottom line is this, if you like boxing you should enjoy this film (unless you have a complete dislike for the Klitschko brothers); and if you can pick it up at a bargain price go for it!

I wasn't having a poke at you or the Klits, but my limited time on here has shown a lot of Klit fans have just watched boxing the last 5-10 years.

I have a friend who would be interested in this, I might pick up a copy for him.

end of the day i love the klitschko's they are very intelligent respectable and likeable guys and i thought the documentary tried to show the negatives as well as the positives.
