Epic Historical Biopic
Watched ‘I am Duran’ recently. Having not known much about Roberto Duran, I was blown away by his story. The film is brilliantly crafted with an intense soundtrack and amazing archive footage throughout. It also has some brilliant interviews with people such as Mike Tyson, Ricky Hatton, Sly Stallone and Robert De Niro. It even features the late general Noriega. It is much more than a generic sporting biopic, the filmmakers use Duran’s story to contrast with the wider social/political situation between Panama and the USA throughout the backend of last century. It’s a rich and fascinating story and the final fight scene will stay with you for a long, long time. Definitely recommend this movie!!
What a gutsy boxer!
There is no doubting that Robert Duran was one of the greatest boxers of all time . He fought in an era when there was some of the greatest boxers of all time . Sugar Ray Leonard , Marvin Hagler and Tommy Hearns and he fought them All . Each one of them were bigger and younger men . He was the comeback king.
This follows his boxing career mainly through that period of his life while also going into the turbulent history of Panama that was playing out at the same time .
There are vox pops from Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone but the ones that matter are the interviews with the boxers , especially those who fought him such as Sugar Ray Leonard and Marvin Hagler.
Duran looks like a fun man to be around the people of Panama quite clearly love him still and this documentary highlights this perfectly.
