Editorial Reviews

Filmed before a live audience in New York City, this HBO Films presentation offers a front-row seat to former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson's hit one-man stage show, which, like the film, was directed by Academy Award nominee Spike Lee. Raw, honest, powerful and full of humor, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth features "Iron Mike" recounting his life's highs and lows. He opens up about such subjects as his troubled youth, landmark boxing career, time in prison, and family in his signature candid style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tyson Is Still A Champion December 3, 2013
Love him or hate him, Mike Tyson will always be a controversial figure within the realm of boxing. He will also always be the guy who was, "Knocking mother-f'ers out in 8 seconds!"

Undisputed Truth is a raw, in-depth, heartbreaking examination of a man who has come to grips with his inner demons and beat them down like so many other opponents. Tyson holds nothing back in this one man show. He mixes his wicked humor with picture perfect direction by Spike Lee to create a masterpiece that should go down as the definitive story of his life (up to this point).

Undisputed Truth is as much for the public as it is for Tyson himself. This film does an amazing job of closing the book on his storied past. One gets the impression that the "new" Mike Tyson just wants to move on with his life and begin anew, writing the next chapter of his existence without the evil influences of his past. Tyson is not running from who he was, he is embracing it, unapologetically. He knows that we all grow as people in this life and that who we were does not define who we can be.

Tyson is still a champion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly well done December 7, 2013
Not being a boxing fan at all, I watched Undisputed Truth completely by accident and was taken in by the mix of humility and self-respect this man showed. Since most of my impressions of Mr. Tyson came from media reports, they were sketchy and sensation-filled. This film, however, presented an insightful view of a "rags to riches" and back again story in a way I've never seen done. The narrative style interspersed with photos and video clips made viewing easy and enjoyable. But more than that, Mr. Tyson's open honesty - clearly accepting responsibility for many of his mistakes, while often forgiving others for theirs - gave me a different view of the man than what I'd expected.
It also showed a man, who faltered several times in life but got up and continued on anyway - a valuable lesson for many.

Someone mentioned that it is a picture of a reasonably good man with flaws - I think that is true - and the fact that he is willing to show that openly in the film is what makes it remarkable.
I didn't read the book, but congratulations to all who made the film possible.

2.0 out of 5 stars Turns Undisputed Truth into Inconceivable Stand-Up. February 18, 2014
Despite some of the sideshow antics surrounding him, Mike Tyson's life has been very serious. His pre-boxing tale is one of a broken home, a violent youth, multiple incarcerations, and the loss of his mother and his mentor. His professional career was a success because he was the best violent man in a room full of violent men, and it was tainted by alleged nefarious actions by boxing promoter Don King. During that time, Tyson's personal life was plagued by a horrendous celebrity marriage to actress Robin Givens, in-the-ring controversy, out-of-the-ring violence, and a rape conviction with subsequent jail time. His post-boxing life includes the accidental death of one his children.

Mike Tyson's life has been very serious. Yet the boxer-turned-celebrity, working from a script written by his current wife Kiki, avoids the opportunity to bare his soul and instead turns Undisputed Truth into Inconceivable Stand-Up.

Have no illusions. This is not a case of a man making light of his past because he's learned to laugh in the face of adversity and face new challenges with a smile. This is schtick. Consider this gem of a line: "The juvenile detention center was like Cheers: there everybody knew my name."

[ crickets ]

Director Spike Lee stops short of adding rim shots to punchlines but something about the audience's reactions throughout the show smells funny. There is laughter where it should not be. I don't know if there is a laugh track, or if audience members were directed to laugh loud, or if audio levels were strategically manipulated. But something about much of the laughter rings false. And I don't think it's me. I've seen enough comedy in my life to understand what is meant to be funny even when it isn't funny to me.
