Laberynth have released a new video here in the UK profiling the rise of
Prince Naseem Hamed - 'Prince Naseem: The Making of a Legend.'
You may think "why release a new video when he has had only one fight
since his last video?" Well let me tell you that this new video is
absolute garbage. The video itself has interviews with Brendan Ingle,
Naz, and friends. This could be quite interesting, but it is let down by
the abysmal sound quality - what are they saying? Don't ***y ask me!
The visual quality is every bit as bad with a shakey picture and poor
resolution. The majority of this 45 minute production shows the lovely
attractions of Naz's home town of Sheffield. I don't want to insult
anyone from Sheffield, but this video makes the town out to be nothing
more than a 'Dead-end Slum'. I certainly felt depressed after watching
The boxing action on the film shows one of the Princes amateur fights as
a young ***ager, and his first proffessional fight at flyweight.
After watching "Natural Born Thriller", I had very high hopes for this
video, hoping to see some action from the Steve Robinson fight
inparticular (there is a picture from this fight on the cover). I was
sorely disappointed, as will many fans of Naz. This video will do Prince
Naseem no favours at all.
VERDICT - "Prince Naseem: Making of a Legend" - ***- 2/10
The sound track is poor, picture is poor, content is poor. The only good
thing about this video is his first pro fight, but even this is nothing
A must for all Naz fans? I don't think so. :-(
