Let me start out with what is good about the Hart & Soul 3 disc DVD set. For one, the documentary included on the set is excellent. The doc. tries to cover a great deal of the Hart family history, including Stu Hart, Helen Hart, Stampede Wrestling, and the unfortunate deaths of Owen Hart, Brian Pillman, Davey Boy Smith, and other Hart family members. The documentary handles all these topics with class (especially the untimely deaths of those I mentioned). I was very surprised that so much was covered and just how many Hart family members were interviewed. Almost everyone of the Hart brothers and sisters including Bret and Diana Hart (Davey Boy Smith's wife), participate in the documentary. At about one hour and thirty six minutes the documentary covers a lot of ground. Personally I wish it was longer, but that just because it is so good and leaves you wanting more.
Now I have to point out one thing about the documentary that is important. If your like me and have read Bret Hart's autobiography and own his WWE produced DVD set, then their might not be a lot of revealing material on the Hart & Soul documentary. Don't get me wrong, it is still worth watching, especially for the perspective of the other Hart family members, but expect some overlap from Bret's book and DVD set.
The matches included on disc 2 and 3 are also a highlight of the set.Read more ›
The Hart family has long served as Canada's first family of Sports Entertainment, from patriarch Stu and his Stampede Wrestling and Dungeon, a training site that has produced multiple Hall of Famers, though sons Bret, Owen, on to a new generation of WWE Superstars, The Hart Dynasty. But the family's journey was never a smooth one, as their accomplishments were often punctuated with devastating tragedies and loss. Now for the first time ever, fans can learn the entire story in Hart & Soul: The Hart Family Anthology. A brand new documentary chronicling more than 5 decades of family lineage is filled with never-before-seen Hart family interviews and supplemented with a dozen matches featuring Bret, Owen, Keith, Bruce, The British Bulldog, The Dynamite Kid, Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, The Hart Dynasty, and more!

The feature documentary here is very good. If you're at all familiar with the Bret Hart documentary released by the WWE a couple years back, you'll be in familiar territory. Stu, Helen, Stampede Wrestling, and all of its key players are covered to a satisfying extent. I would have liked the documentary to have gone a bit more in-depth on the countless restarts of Stampede Wrestling, but what was covered does give a good account of the fledgling franchise. There's also mention of some of the lesser known Hart's, like Dean, who Bret Hart considered his hero, before his life spiraled out of control. It becomes obvious that the Hart's aren't your typical family, but the documentary portrays them as survivors, seeing the daylight after countless struggles.
If you're one of the millions who will be picking this up thanks to it's coverage of Owen Hart, Davey Smith, Jim Neidhart, and Bret Hart, you'll also be very satisfied. Owen Hart in particular is given plenty of attention, and you'll love the various stories about him on the road.
Anyone familiar with the Hart family knows that there are plenty of personal demons to cover, and many are gone over in this dvd. Unfortunately, not enough attention is paid to the role the business played in some of the biggest tragedies. This, of course, is thanks to the WWE production of the dvd.Read more ›
