Marion Jones: Press Pause

Posted on the 29 June 2011 by Kaiser31083 @andythemovieguy
Marion Jones: Press PauseMarion Jones: Press Pause is about 20 minutes of an intriguing story dragged out for the course of an hour. Directed by John Singleton, it tells Jones' story as a phenom athlete in high school to her unmeasured Olympic track and field success up until her downfall and disgrace when she was imprisoned for lying to federal investigators about her performance enhancement usage. Jones herself participated and its intriguing hearing her version of events. However redundancy begins to take over and certain points are hammered relentlessly. The attempt to depict her redemption by her showing her playing in the WNBA doesn't quite come off well either.
