Manny 2014
About: From abject poverty to becoming a ten-time boxing globe champion, congressman, and international icon, Manny Pacquiao is the real definition of a Cinderella story. In the Philippines, he first entered the ring as a sixteen-year-old weighing ninety-eight pounds with the target of earning cash to feed his family. Now, almost twenty years later, when he fights, the country of 100 million folks comes to a finished standstill to watch. Regarded for his ability to bring folks together, Pacquiao entered the political arena in 2010. As history’s first boxing congressman, Pacquiao actually wars for his folks both inside and outside of the ring. Actually at the height of his career, he is faced with maneuvering an unscrupulous sport while maintaining his political duties. The question actually is, what bridge is too far for Manny Pacquiao to cross?

Manny Reviews:

This documentary is about the life and career of Manny Pacquiao, probably the most popular Filipino celebrity the globe over now. While we in the Philippines idolize him as our "National Fist," it would be very interesting to hear what another peoples have to tell about him.The movie was narrated by Liam Neeson. It begins with Manny Pacquiao contemplating on why he boxes. Pacquiao mostly narrates his storyline in Filipino (with English subtitles). We learn that he joined fishermen when he was a terrible man growing up in Sarangani province. He credited that experience for developing his physical strength. From there, we will meet different folks who have influenced his life and career.Manny's mother Dionisia was restrained and sincere when she talked about his childhood. Too terrible that would only be her only part in the film. His wife Jinkee had more participation, talking about their private life. There was an obvious hesitation in some parts when she was going to tell something negative, but that was understandable. Too terrible there was no interview with his kids. It would have been nice to know how he was as a father.The bulk of this documentary will of course be about his boxing career. We will meet his uncle Sardo Mejia who taught 12 year old Manny about boxing. His childhood mate Buboy Fernandez was trained by Manny to be his assistant trainer. We will receive to learn more about Freddie Roach, his own career, how they met and their show relationship. Top Rank promoter Bob Arum and innovative conditioning coach Alex Ariza are also featured prominently. Former managers Rod Nazario and Michael Koncz were not so favorably mentioned.We receive to witness the greatest scenes from Pacquiao's most memorable fights. There was that 1995 match with a certain Rossel, Manny's first significant victory that started him on his winning path. There was that match vs. Hussein in 2000, the first current match Jinkee watched live, and she was six months pregnant then. His first match in the US, vs. Ledwaba, which Manny convincingly won despite being a longshot. There were highlights of his matches with Barrera, Morales, Solis, Diaz, Marquez, dela Joya, Hatton (that chilling knockout), Cotto, Margarito (that unprecedented eighth globe title), and Bradley (that controversial loss by decision). There was of course mention of the dream match which may never be, that elusive one vs. Floyd Mayweather.We will also see Manny's forays into the entertainment scene. There were films like "Wapak-Man" and "Anak ng Kumander", which did not exactly receive nice reviews nor nice box office. There was his singing "Imagine" on TV with Will Ferrell. We see inside footage of Manny recording "Sometimes When We Touch" in Capitol Records, with no less than Dan Hill himself coaching him (which I found so funny). There was also a fast montage of his multiple product endorsements locally and abroad, many of which we have not seen before.We will see his career in politics as congressman of the lone district of Sarangani. There were even predictions posed about a possible presidency. There was also footage from a prayer meeting where Manny was the motivational speaker. There were thoughts shared about how these another activities were affecting his boxing career.The celebrities they interviewed were also interesting, from Tag Wahlberg to Imelda Marcos! It was heartening to hear testimonies of Manny's greatness from foreign boxing experts, how he is mentioned in the same breath as Muhammad Ali. It was not all roses and plaudits though, as his early financial issues (not yet the tax woes) and many vices were also brought up.This gotta have been a nightmare to wade through all the footage and media appearances and edit it together into an inspiring and truly touching feature-length documentary such as this one. One of the directors is Leon Gast who won an Oscar in 1996 directing other documentary about boxing "When We Were Kings." That movie was about the iconic Ali-Foreman "Rumble in the Jungle" match. The another director is a Fil-American Ryan Moore. This is Moore's first commercial movie project.I think "Manny" succeeds in its aim to craft a fair hero study of a boy who came from nothing, who pushed himself to achieve nice things for himself and his entire country. This is a very well-made documentary feature, unexpectedly an emotional movie which will transport many to tears.


Manny appeared to be well-received in its globe premiere at the SXSW Movie Festival. The movie is certainly informative for those of us who haven't followed Manny Pacquiao's multi-faceted career carefully. His storyline of his rise from a hut in an obscure Philippine village to international superstar is a truly impressive rags-to-riches tale. He has managed to successfully leverage his boxing career to transport into another arenas including acting, music, religion, product endorsement and most intriguingly actually politics. His determination and difficult work are extremely impressive as he has risen to become a transcendent figure in the Philippines. The movie has a bit too much footage of too many wars and lacks in-depth analysis of who the boy behind the warrior really is. The movie often strays from documentary into hagiography so that it doesn't feel like a truly objective presentation. It comes off more like an extended campaign biography for his future political career as his boxing career is winding down. Some of the metaphors such as Manny as a "fighter" who fought for the pride of his country and actually will war for the folks of the Philippines feel a bit forced. It is hard to say if his newest focus on his faith reflects a genuine transformation away from his past sinful methods - drinking and womanizing - or a political software to enhance his future political career. The movie remains informative and entertaining, but needs to be taken with few grains of salt.


the film is very interesting documentary about Manny Pacquiao's life, success, and current behind the scenes things. but i have a various take about the film than most people, i think it really just showed how corrupt boxing can be, in a very subtle way, and how stars are made. the film was mainly just about Manny, but for me it opened my eyes about many things. bare with me a little. I think the real purpose of this film is just to subtly say folks how corrupt Bob Arum is. i even read his wikipedia page, and it is full of controversy, how he bribed people. SPOILER: so the ending was obviously just Bob arum trying to create a fresh star for people, the fresh young guy Bradley, so he paid the judges off... interestingly, he sponsored BOTH boxers, the fitness guy even said us many times how Manny is used, and Bob is the only one making profit here. there are many subtle tips by Mayweather too that he won't war with Manny until he is sponsored by bob arum .fearing of lawsuit they don't tell anything terrible about him, they just implied he is paying off judges, by telling "how can a guy at 105pounds victory vs a much skilled guy who is 150 pounds... he CANT..." first seemed idiotic statement since he won vs them. but the end got me thinking that all Bob did was to create a legend to create more profit for himself (and for Manny too at that time). to create a legend you need him to victory in all leagues, meaning he IS a nice warrior but folks were probably bribed along the method (judges, maybe fighters, etc, i don't know) without knowledge of Manny. there was a victory by decision of him too which could have been a loss. (probably judges paid) but this time he was on the winning side, because his sponsor Bob Arum still had plans with him, making him into a legend. but then when he became a legend, it was time for a fresh winner and more money, the ending with Bradley. that judge decision was so bad, that in wikipedia it states WBO's Championship Committee would review the video of the war with five independent judges. folks made a vote and even asked some another professional boxers/commentators what do they think about it, and all of them gave it to Manny. but doesn't matter, only NSAC can change the result. and they didn't, so soon they had a war again with Bradley which was won by Manny.so nice to hold this in mind how stars are made and how difficult working honest folks are used in that world. disgusting. but the film was an eye opener for me, and i guess they couldn't focus more on Bob Arum's corruptive nature due to fear of lawsuits for defamation.
