Critic Reviews for Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth

All Critics (1) | Fresh (1)

  • [Spike] Lee doesn't judge Tyson's sins, but he does express an attitude toward his story, through the way he frames a desperately ingratiating Tyson at a persistent remove.

Audience Reviews for Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth

  • May 15, 2014
    I've seen my fair share of documentary films, and I love this genre of film. So many great films have been chronicling important subjects, with Undisputed Truth, we get an awful documentary directed by Spike Lee, who is one of the worst directors and he has overstayed his welcome. Mike Tyson is a legend in his sport, but the way the subject is handled is a one sided opinion of himself because Mike Tyson is the only sharing his story. The best documentaries are the ones that show all the angles to the story, to give you an in depth look at the person and his stories past. The way Tyson narrates his life is quite disturbing, shocking and he says it in a way that tries to be funny, but it ends up failing miserably. Spike Lee can't craft a documentary, and he is a director that only stirs things up in the press because he can't seem to make quality films because he's played the race card over and over again to the point where it's a cliché. I wanted to enjoy it, but couldn't because it was a one side story, and it really didn't go in depth to what Tyson has gone through from all angles. No one is interviewed, and it's only Mike Tyson in front of an audience talking, which may sound interesting, but it's really not. Undisputed Truth is a bland, lifeless documentary that ranks as one of the worst documentary films ever. Hopefully one day a more proper documentary will be filmed by a more competent, who tackles this subject in a way that it tries to be sensational, and it falls flat, because Tyson as he's saying his story, he makes disturbing aspects seem funny to get a life, and it fails. This documentary is poorly done, and you're better off watching a TV documentary on his life by people that knows him. This is tedious, pretentious filmmaking by a desperate director that tries to regain that momentum that he lost over a decade ago.
