Champion is a small-scale tell-all documentary on the upbringing of one of the most famous character actors out there today, Danny Trejo. The best part about this intimate documentary is we get to see the real Trejo, the one is far more intimidating and scary than ANY of the characters he plays in his films. Thanks to some unwise directions in his upbringing, Danny goes through the ringer of drugs, crime, and eventually imprisonment. Through that, we learn how alcoholics and narcotics anonymous really help to pull Trejo out of the gutter, not to mention give him the opportunity of a lifetime as a steady working actor in Hollywood, eventually blossoming into a very lucrative and interesting career. The Hollywood part is very small in comparison to the emphasis put on Trejo's upbringing and eventual jailtime. In this film, we get to see Trejo be as real as he is ever going to be and we hear some pretty intense and frightening stories, though not too over-the-top like I was expecting. There's also some interesting interviews with celebrities like Steve Buscemi, Val Kilmer, Dennis Hopper, etc. My favorite side interview involves the little known Eddie Bunker, another ex-convict turned hollywood writer/actor (he was Mr. Blue in Reservoir Dogs and also appeared in The Longest Yard remake). It was great getting some insight from him as well, before he died shortly after the completion of this film. Certainly not a bad documentary to watch, especially before Trejo comes out with the biggest, most important movie of his career, Machete. Good watch.
