Bruno v Tyson (2021) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Bruno v Tyson, produced and released as a Sky original, may lack new insight into the legendary rivalry between the two pugilists but it more than makes up for it with a heavy dose of nostalgia for a bygone era of sport when heavyweight boxing was at its most popular.  A mix of new interviews and archive footage, it takes the well trodden format of films like Senna and Amy, but adding a new element by filming a reunion between the the titular boxers.  It all makes for compelling viewing – relevant to both those who were there at the time and those who are just fans of the sport.   So little new insight but plenty to enjoy regardless.

Best Bit: The reunion
