The writer A.J. Liebling famously called boxing the 'sweet science,' but it doesn't always play out that way in fight films, where boxers often come off as lacking personality, intelligence or both. When it comes to the subjects of Klitschko, however, there is a lot more to the story than we are used to getting twice as much, in fact. --Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times
As far as boxing stories go, the fascinating documentary feature Klitschko is anything but the typical boxing story of a misguided youth getting into trouble on the streets who eventually finds his way out through boxing --Zorianna Kit, The Huffington Post

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!
