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.

This is a must see film for any athlete. It is truly a life changing film. Chien-Ming Wang is a young man that was born a girl, but later in life came to understand and appreciate being a woman. This film is a wonderful biography of the life of Chien-Ming Wang, and a must see for any female. Although the story itself is real, the film goes to show that it can be done in a very realistic way. There is never a doubt that this film was produced on a budget of only a few hundred dollars. I think that the film should be included on every woman's must see film list.

I just got to see this at a screening in San Francisco. I just want to say that I was so touched by this film. It was not at all what I expected. I had not heard of Chien-Ming Wang and just got to know about her through some media about which I hadn't paid much attention to. I was blown away by this film. It has been years since I have seen a movie that affected me the way this one did. There are so many emotional scenes that were so well done. I really hope this movie gets made and distributed in some way. It's definitely worth a look. This is a film that really changes your mind and your perception of people. I hope people see this film. I have to give it a 10 out of 10. I know some of the people who were at the screening and had their hands in their mouths a little bit but for the most part, I was very moved. It's definitely worth seeing.

I grew up in Taiwan and in the early 90s I went to Taiwan to attend an international film festival. I went with my brother and his brother. He was 15 and I was 19. We both were passionate about baseball. I made a trip to Taiwan and got my chance to watch Jackie's career. When I came back I asked myself, "What am I doing this trip for?" It turns out that I was able to watch Jackie play a whole lot of games. He was starting at the bottom of the system. The first thing I noticed was that he could play the whole field and was physically ready to do so. His bat had a different swing than a lot of players had. He was capable of hitting the ball in the gap between the third baseman and the first baseman. He was an offensive, raw, amateur, low budget player who could hit the ball, but I could not recall seeing him drive it or play the position. He did play all three positions. He had to learn how to do it and learn it by heart. Jackie was an excellent fielder. He had a great arm and could get the ball out of the infield. He had a nice approach to hitting. His batting was something that we have seen in recent years. He made me remember that I had seen him do things that no other player had done. I had no idea that he was such a great player. I did not realize that he had done this many times. The stories told in the movie show what a great player he was. He made the transition to the major leagues in 1997. I had not seen him play for so long. He had more life in him than I had ever seen him have. It is amazing how he learned to play baseball at the age of 19. I think he could have played with anyone. He was a great baseball player. He made me realize that I had never seen anyone like him before. He was a talented and extremely talented player. The guy had a little bat, and he could hit the ball in the gap between the third baseman and the first baseman. He could hit the ball over the fence, he was a special player.

I have been a fan of Chien-Ming Wang since I first saw her film "The Killer Angels" in 1998. After this, I became a fan of her work, and I have always been interested in the process of film making. This documentary is a very well-done, entertaining, and informative look at the making of "The Killer Angels." The director, Harry Manfredini, provides a wealth of information on the film's production and distribution, the interviews with Wang's producers, and her family and friends, as well as Wang's personal life. The film provides a fascinating look at the development of the film, as well as a look at the love and hate relationship between Wang and her mother. I found this documentary to be very informative and entertaining, and I hope that more people will see it and learn more about the making of this film.

When I first heard of the Chien-Ming Wang story, I thought it was a stupid movie about a Chinese man who was trying to get into the Olympics. But I decided to watch it and I am so glad I did. I found the story fascinating and the man's story was fascinating too. I was also impressed by the cinematography and the music. I'm not sure how the movie got such a low rating. I think it's because the story is not original. But it is still a fascinating story. I can't wait to see it again.

Well done to everyone who has had the opportunity to take this movie to the theater, for this is a really important story to be told. It is inspirational and it is really moving. It is the story of a man who took on two men who were nearly killed in a race at the 1976 Olympics and won. The one man who ran with him was Chien Ming Wang who is now a film producer, and has a whole lot more to share. The story is not just about the 1976 Olympics. The story is about the love of one man to another and how he showed everyone what is important and what is important for life. Everyone should see this movie.

To his credit, Chien Ming Wang's film Chien-Ming Wang Story is a wonderful tale of a middle-aged man who was obsessed with baseball until his fateful encounter with the cat. And how it affected his life. Like a cat's breath, he knew he had to lose his life. But he didn't care if he had to give it up. And by the end of the movie, you know that he will. In fact, you can't help but feel for him. You want to give him a happy ending, but you know he'll still be struggling to come to terms with his life. What is really interesting is the way he is portrayed by writer-director Ken C. Rain. It's hard to think of someone so dedicated to his work. He is a very down-to-earth, everyday man. The movie does not show him as a "hard-nosed" man who never shirks from an opportunity. He never has a chance to be unkind to anyone, because he never tries to be mean. He has been through enough, and he's a man who has experienced so much. In fact, the last time he saw his mother was three years ago, and that's when he finally lost his job. When he realized he had to go through it all, he didn't seem to be going through it alone. He didn't need any other help, and he didn't need anyone to remind him to go on. In fact, he showed a tremendous desire to be a better person. He was a good man who had to deal with the difficulties of life, and he knew that he had to accept that. He had to figure out what was important in life, and he had to learn to live life to the fullest. If you want to know what his life was like when he lost his job, this is a movie that will teach you. It's a documentary film about a man who has to deal with all the difficulties of life, but he never lets it get to him. He had to go through it all, and he didn't need anyone to tell him how to live. His life story is something that needs to be told, and you should be proud of what Ken C. Rain did with it. This film is a great tribute to Chien Ming Wang. He's been an inspiration to millions of people, and I would be honored if you could see it. It's a movie that I could watch over and over again. It is a movie that is worth a second or third viewing. I wish I could give it a 10, but unfortunately I can't.

This is the best documentary I have ever seen about one of the best martial artists of all time. For years I was told to watch this documentary because I believe Chien Ming Wang would make a fantastic boxer. After watching this film, I believe I will go watch him in boxing as soon as possible. The documentary looks at Chien's life in Hong Kong, his family, his fighting career, and the problems he faced when he had a stroke. I will never watch a documentary that is as amazing as this. This is my favorite documentary, and I hope others like it too. If you are a fan of Chien-Ming, watch this documentary!

This documentary is very interesting and it makes you think and understand about the life of Chien-Ming Wang. I also learned a lot from this documentary and I recommend it to everybody. The people who like sports movies should definitely watch this documentary. This is one of the best sports documentaries ever.
