This documentary is about the life and career of Manny Pacquiao,
probably the most famous Filipino celebrity the world over now. While
we in the Philippines idolize him as our "National Fist," it would be
very interesting to hear what other peoples have to say about him.
The film was narrated by Liam Neeson. It starts with Manny Pacquiao
contemplating on why he boxes. Pacquiao mostly narrates his story in
Filipino (with English subtitles). We learn that he joined fishermen
when he was a poor boy growing up in Sarangani province. He credited
that experience for developing his physical strength. From there, we
will meet various people who have influenced his life and career.
Manny's mother Dionisia was restrained and sincere when she talked
about his childhood. Too bad that would only be her only part in the
film. His wife Jinkee had more participation, talking about their
personal life. There was an obvious hesitation in some parts when she
was going to say something negative, but that was understandable. Too
bad there was no interview with his kids. It would have been good 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 friend Buboy Fernandez was trained by Manny to be
his assistant trainer. We will get to learn more about Freddie Roach,
his own career, how they met and their present 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 get to witness the best scenes from Pacquiao's most memorable
fights. There was that 1995 match with a certain Rossel, Manny's first
significant win that started him on his winning path. There was that
match vs. Hussein in 2000, the first actual 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 world 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 movies like "Wapak-Man" and "Anak ng Kumander", which did not
exactly get good reviews nor good 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 quick 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 other activities were affecting his boxing career.
The celebrities they interviewed were also interesting, from Mark
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 problems (not yet the tax woes) and many
vices were also brought up.
This must 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 another
documentary about boxing "When We Were Kings." That film was about the
iconic Ali-Foreman "Rumble in the Jungle" match. The other director is
a Fil-American Ryan Moore. This is Moore's first commercial film
I think "Manny" succeeds in its aim to craft a fair character study of
a man who came from nothing, who pushed himself to achieve great things
for himself and his whole country. This is a very well-made documentary
feature, unexpectedly an emotional film which will move many to tears.
