Though this artful film by German documentarian Sebastian Dehnhardt does not stint on inside-the-ring footage, its main attraction is the intense interpersonal dynamic between the brothers.

It's a no-nonsense look at what it takes to become a champion - and what it takes out of a man to hold on to that title.

For those who care about the winning and losing of championship belts, the film's slow-motion attention to pugilistic style and powerhouse punches is thrillingly instructive.

The two-hour pic's lack of economy makes for heavy slogging, with no boxing minutiae too small for exhaustive exposition.

The result isn't quite a puff piece, but it feels like it's building up the brothers' self-approved mythology rather than getting under their skin.

A standard if formless ESPN hagiography, complete with a cheesy cop-show score and little sense of who these guys are outside of the ring.
