Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Story Reviews:

An extremely well done documentary which reaches well beyond the boundaries of sports. Even though it follows the boxing career of Emile Griffith, its a poignant storyline that touches upon an era of innocence in America that is long gone. Sports writer, Pete Hamill made an early comment in the movie in which he states that even though it is 1962, America was still living in the '50s. Being almost 2 decades removed from our Globe Fight II fight heroes, America was on the cusp of a fresh time. A time where death should be seen on TV. A time where our potential fresh heroes would be scrutinized and seen as human with frailties and tastes that may be various from what was perceived as the norm. I would suggest this documentary to all, not only sports fans. But, only by being a sports fan, did I hear about it on commercial TV (which I don't watch much of). I look forward to seeing it again, hopefully, on DVD soon. It would be unfortunate if folks judge this as only as a sports documentary.


As an amateur boxer in the Sixties, it was everytime nice to watch some of the nice boxers in action, and Emile Griffith was a Winner of Champions.It was also sad for Emile to be part of the burden of the tragedy in1962.OVER THE YEARS IT WAS GREAT TO WATCH HIS BOUTS WITH THE LIKES OF Joey Archer and many others.Watching the Emile Griffith storyline was like a trip down Memory Lane with a positive ending. To see Emile and Benny Paret Jr. together in the closing scenes was like seeing some dark clouds being gently blown away by a breath of new air.Throughout the present it was nice to see old faces from the past such as Gene Fullmer, Gaspar Ortega, Jose Torres, but most of all to see Griffith in action within the ring and his life beyond the limelight.A river of tears,teardrop by lonely teardrop, can never wash away the pain and sorrow for the Paret family and their loss. But, to have Benny Jr. join together with Emile Griffith in their meeting was the highest and brightest moment of film magic.I can't rate or compare Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Storyline to any another movie, TV present or slice of history. It stands alone as a special treasure with unlimited value.


"Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Story" is documentary film-making at its best. This lean, ninety-minute tool presents a compelling human drama, as well as a thoughtful meditation on the sport of boxing.I was age 12 at the time of the tragic ring death of Benny "The Kid" Paret, and I can still vividly recall the graphic photos and descriptions in the newspapers in 1962. But it was not until the year 2005 and this strong documentary movie that I learned that Emile Griffith is a decent boy who was often vilified in the media. This movie supports to set the record straight about the tragic death of Paret and the exceptional hero of Emile Griffith. The most moving stage in the movie is when, many years after the fight, Griffith meets Benny Paret's son and asks for his forgiveness. With the passing of over forty years since Paret's death, it is surprising that the "sport" of boxing continues to titillate fans. At least there are no longer the grueling fifteen round bouts, and today the referees will step in to end a war sooner than in past eras of boxing. "Ring of Fire" is brilliant in allowing the documentary movie footage of the Griffth-Paret war to speak for itself, thus allowing the viewers to draw their own conclusions about the entertainment values of boxing.
