Rating: 3/5 -- There is something compelling about the way he presents his version of the stories and scandals that surround him. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- Just relentless lisping monotonous speech that makes the prospect of entering the ring with Mike seem attractive if only because it will be over sooner. Full Review
Sydney Morning Herald
Aug 10, 2009
Rating: 4/5 -- The knockout punches are delivered by Toback's incredible access, supreme editing choices and ability to let Tyson talk himself into a cul-de-sac. Full Review

Toback's "documentary" is a one-man show: Tyson is the only interview. But what prevents it from turning into hagiography is the subject's talent for devastating self-exposure. Full Review

The redeeming value of Tyson is its entrée into the mind of a wild man, a furious force of nature. Full Review
The Daily Gazette (Schenectady, NY)

Rating: 5/5 -- The greatest bout of Tyson's life was no singular opponent but him being an experimental pawn in the battle of nature versus nurture. Full Review

Apr 7, 2015
Rating: 4/5 -- It all adds up to a fascinating psychological study, a film that goes beyond both the public persona and the fighter's own spin to get at the frightened, angry, explosive, yet utterly understandable boy who became a very troubled and very public man. Full Review

Product Description:

Love him or hate him, Mike Tyson is inarguably one of popular culture's most fascinating figures. In this riveting documentary portrait of the controversial boxer, filmmaker and friend James Toback lets Tyson tell his own volatile story. It all started in a rough-and-tumble Brooklyn neighborhood, where Tyson was picked on and beaten up as a youngster. But when he turned his fear into anger, he realized that his fists had the ferocity to frighten everyone around him. As a teenager, Tyson moved upstate to live with trainer Cus D'Amato, who became the devoted and compassionate father figure he never had. This support helped Tyson develop the strength and focus needed to become a devastating champion inside the ring. But when D'Amato died, something inside Tyson died too, turning him into an even more dangerous monster outside of the ring.

As Tyson speaks openly about the ups and downs in his tumultuous life--alternating between moments of sincere introspection and animalistic rage--Toback employs a split-screen approach to further emphasize his emotionally unstable nature. Mixed into this talking-head monologue is striking archival footage that shows Tyson in his prime, when he was one of the most feared and idolized athletes on the planet. TYSON is an appropriately subjective journey into the mind of a massively complicated man.

Product Description:

Mike Tyson reveals insights into his life in this no-holds-barred look at one of the most controversial and misunderstood boxers to ever step inside the ring.
