The first and only Taiwanese player for the New York Yankees, Chien-Ming Wang held many titles: American League Wins Leader, World Series Champion, Olympian, Time 100 Most Influential, and The Pride of Taiwan. He had it all - until a 2008 injury forever altered the course of his career. LATE LIFE: The Chien-Ming Wang Story - named after the late sinking action on his signature pitch - follows the rise and fall of the international icon as he fights his way back into the Major Leagues through endless rehab programs and lengthy stints away from home, carrying the weight of the world on his battered shoulder. A poignant and intimate account of Wang's steadfast quest, LATE LIFE tells the story of a man who is unwilling to give up and unable to let go.

I have to say, I am surprised that this documentary hasn't made its way to a wider audience. It's not an obvious film to recommend. If you are a die-hard fans of the Chien Ming Wang team, then it's not a bad choice to see this film. If you are not, it's not a bad choice to see this film. It's the same old story about the competition between two of the best players of their time. We see that the best players of the era don't have the greatest career track record, but they still have incredible talent. This film does have a few lessons about the importance of practice, but I am not sure that the film really takes the lessons to heart. It seems to me that the filmmakers feel that the film is about these people, not about the sport, and it does have some amazing pictures. But the film is too long. It's just too long and too tedious. The film is great if you want to see these guys in their prime. Otherwise, it's not great.

This documentary was put together by Ken Hong, the real life mentor of Jackie Robinson and Mookie, who has a heart and a soul. It includes a few clips of Jackie and Mookie interacting with Ken in the dressing room before a game. It includes some scenes from Ken's life as a great player and manager, including a hilarious, pithy, and insightful interview with Jackie at the '77 World Series with his newly-deceased father and the real-life baseball commissioner. This documentary also includes interviews with Ken's son Doug and two young players that Ken coached when they were in the Braves organization: Carl Vaughn, and Tony Stewart. (Both are now major leaguers). Doug, the younger of the two, made the transition to the big leagues as a mid-season call-up in 2004. Tony is a rising prospect who was part of the Dominican Summer League team in 2008. The film also features interviews with Mookie Wilson, a baseball writer who got to know Ken when he was at college, and Bill Shaikin, a baseball historian who was the book's co-editor. It also includes quotes from Jackie's friend Don Baylor, and his former player, Bill "Bud" Lee. This documentary has a heart and soul. It includes some moments of comedy. It includes some footage of the actual 1970 World Series and some clips of Jackie's life. It also includes the real story of the real-life Mookie and the real story of the real-life Jackie. It's a nice, heartwarming story. In addition, it includes a few baseball quotes that were given to Ken by Jackie during a road trip in 1977. Ken will be remembered for his excellent story-telling skills, his passion for baseball, and his warmth to the people he met. I give this doc a 10 out of 10.

This documentary has given me a huge insight on what happened to Chien-Ming, how she and her husband (who made a comeback for the late 80's) were able to meet each other again and take care of their children in peace. The film is just really fascinating to see. For me, this was one of the best documentaries I've ever seen! It is simply amazing how she and her husband's life was like when they had been separated for 10 years. For me, this film is the best. Thank you for the great work you did with this documentary! You should get the award for best documentary! You must get the award for best documentary! Please do something about the problem. Thank you!

Chien-Ming Wang is one of the greatest and most influential film directors of all time. His body of work is so huge and vast that it is hard to know where to start. This documentary follows the life of Wang as he finds his place in the world of films. He is a quiet man with a large family who can barely speak English. When he is asked to direct a movie he cannot direct it. He becomes a pariah in Hollywood, and his only friends are a regular guy and his grandfather. The only way he can keep a normal life is to be a quiet man. There are numerous interviews with Wang's family, friends, and film friends. The film is very informative and shows the life of a man who never really fit in. It is a beautiful and inspiring story that is very inspirational. I recommend this documentary.

This film is a combination of the good old-fashioned fight/choreography, the tough-guy-driven-into-a-stupor protagonist, and the forced-upon-the-viewer-by-Hollywood-advertising-blurb kind of story. It is a nice one, in a time when the "look" of the martial arts film is getting really dated. It was made in the 1970's when the top-flight of the martial arts film was all about the flashy techniques and hand-to-hand fighting. This film is about the real "choreography" and the "stupor", the poor lifestyle that the famous "Wang brothers" lived, the hopeless poverty that was the bottom of their "village". It was made when they were looking for a way out of the poverty and the poverty-induced stupor, and this film is one of the few films that managed to capture that desperation and desperation-and, in fact, how they lived. The acting is fantastic, and the camera work is fantastic. It is a truly great and inspiring documentary that deserves more recognition. If you like the type of film I mentioned above, I think you will also like this one.

I first saw this movie in the early 90's when I was a teenager. At the time I really didn't know what to expect. I was a fan of the late Chien-Ming Wang and the movie only confirmed my feelings. I was very impressed by the movie. Although there were many flaws and flaws were apparent from the beginning, the movie still made me think of the late Chien-Ming Wang. After watching the movie I became a fan of Wang. I thought that the movie was not only about Wang, but it was about a man's life and how he deals with the end of his life. This movie helped me understand that life is not always about money, fame and fortune. In the end, Wang's life was the only one that mattered and it was a life that made him happy. The movie also showed that Wang was a man who made his own path and he had a personal life that he enjoyed. I believe that the movie was very touching. I also believe that the movie was very entertaining. Although the movie did not have much depth, the movie still had a powerful effect on me. I would recommend that anyone who is a fan of Chien-Ming Wang should see this movie.
