Manny Pacquiao Movie

Manny Pacquiao fans will be thrilled to know that a documentary film about their ‘idol’s’ life is set to be released this year. The movie will feature ‘Pacman’s’ life – from his poverty stricken origins to his current, multi-million successes.

The released film teasers have already garnered positive reviews. It is narrated by no less than award winning actor, Liam Neeson. And if that isn’t enough, familiar faces will appear as well to give their own personal insights of the Pambansang Kamao. ( literally translated as National Fist, as Manny is so fondly called by his fellowmen.)

This is not the first movie about Manny’s life. In June 2006, a biopic was released, Pacquiao: The Movie. It starred Jericho Rosales as the famed boxer and Bea Alonzo as his wife, Jinkee and featured actual footage from the highlights of Pacman’s career.

What sets this movie apart is the raw honesty it brings to Manny’s fans. It will have personal reflections from Manny, shared stories from his family and friends and interviews from Hollywood stars turned fans as well as musings from his trainer, Freddie Roach. For the first time, viewers will hear his words and travel back through time with him. For the first time, he will share his struggle, his pain and his success. This is what draws in fans: our empathy with Manny Pacquiao. This is the same reason why Filipinos emulate him; his journey was not a smooth paved path but a rough road full of thorns and riddled with stones.

The documentary film is a SXSW entry in Austin, Texas. SXSW stands for South by South West and it is an annual festival that focuses on directing new talent.
