HBO's new movie about the former heavyweight champ portraysMike Tysonas an emotionally vacant young man devoid of any inner drive to win. With George C. Scott as trainer Cus D'Amato, Paul Winfield as Don King and newcomer Michael Jai White as Tyson, the movie shows "Iron Mike without an iron will" says TIME reviewer Gina Bellafante. However, it fails to offer any insight into the boxer's psychology. "Fallen heroes always retain a certain mystery, but they needn't be this inscrutable."
