Life Of Ryan Blu-ray review


  • Blu-ray release: 11 November 2014
  • Director: Daniel Mendelle
  • Starring: Ryan Giggs


“If he played on snow, he wouldn’t leave footprints!” says one talking head of footballer Ryan ‘Giggsy’ Giggs, setting the tone for an ‘official’ documentary about the Manchester United stalwart that plays like a postscript to last year’s The Class Of ’92.

David Beckham, Maradona and the Neville siblings all line up to pay tribute to Mr Giggs, in a film whose insights into the Reds’ post-Alex Ferguson travails will be lapped up by fans and sport journalists alike. Unsurprisingly though, Daniel Mendelle’s ‘all areas’ access to the player doesn’t quite extend to Ryan’s love life or any off-pitch controversies.
