No, I'm not a boxing fan.

Good to know there ARE some good people still moving forward with kindness and a sense of family - which Americans are getting confused with.

The film portrays such an amazing story about a family and their perseverance to pursue a passion.

An excellent film, not only regarding the world of boxing - but family honor, self respect, awareness and integrity. Definitely worthy of sharing with young people trying to get a grasp on the world (and the spoiled ones who need direction). Good to know there ARE some good people still moving forward with kindness and a sense of family - which Americans are getting confused with. Just buy it!

This documentary was filmed with the HIGHEST definition I have ever had the pleasure of focusing my eyeballs on in a theater, which justified my purchase of it on Blu-ray (rather than DVD) even though I don't have a BR player of my own. The quality of the picture makes every scene fun to look at, whether it's a sweeping shot of the Ukrainian desert or a close-up, slow-motion sequence of an ear-rippling left jab to the face.
To go along with the excellent visual quality of Klitschko is a superbly-told story that defines a good documentary: one that makes you passionate about a subject that you cared little about beforehand. Yes, it's boxing. No, I'm not a boxing fan. However, Sebastian Dehnhardt's intimate treatment of his two subjects Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko in and out of the boxing ring lends an emotional impact with every punch the brothers throw and receive, and leaves you searching your cable provider's pay-per-view selection for "Klitschko" to see when the next fight is... (May 4th in Mannheim, fyi).

Bottom line: Great story, exciting slow-motion boxing action, and the most stunning visuals of any documentary feature I've seen yet... If you are looking for a great film on Blu-ray to showcase your new Ultra-HD screen, this is it!

These guys had the depth of persona needed to be true heroes and winners. What great role models for fans and non-fans alike buy, the way they lived their lives both in and out of the ring

My husband and I love "good" boxing, and the Klitschos are our favorites. This DVD covers their history, including their upbringing, successes and failures. If you are a boxing fan and know of the Klitschko brothers, this DVD won't disappoint you.

i was so surprised seeing this film that it held my attention for the duration. its not just a story about the sport of boxing, its also so much more. its a story about family, overcoming adversity, breaking down stereotypes, making your own way, setting and attaining goals, and being a good role model. great message, some funny anecdotal background about the former soviet ideology and propaganda, maybe what we take too much for granted today. definitely a must see and for more than just boxing fans.

Winners are born not made. This was the line in my head before watching the Klitschko brothers' story. Knowing nothing about them, this is the ideal dvd to follow their journey from kick-boxing youngsters to Heavyweight champions. The line which came to me whilst watching was: theirs is an untidy story. A unique boxing story but also a typical post-Soviet experience. Talent had to flee.

As a documentary it could have used a lot more pace and ditched the fancy camera shots and brooding music track. I was fascinated by the German connection, they speak German as well as Russian (I trust the sub titles for that information) and the corrupt Ukranian political situation. Even the Chernobel disaster was well covered.

I sensed that once again a boxing story is so dependent on the skill and honesty of those closest to the boxer. Trainers and Managers. Apart from the aversion to Don King and the comment on a trainer that: 'he knows my body better than my wife!' this side of the story is not delved into.

I was particularly pleased to hear the question about them boxing each other was left to near the end. The relationship between the two brothers is clearly two rail tracks on the same line. A loving mother and the caring, disciplined father. Rock steady feet.

I threw the dvd into my shopping basket at the local supermarket now that it is on the discount shelves, I recommend the story of two men who reached the top of the mountain. Boxing at its best is a way out and a way in. Well played both brothers.
