I Am Giant: Victor Cruz

I Am Giant: Victor Cruz2018-06-14T18:22:45+00:00

Documentary chronicling Victor Cruz’s improbable rise to football stardom, the life shattering injury that derailed his career and his dramatic attempt at a comeback, revealing the man behind the mask, as he faces the biggest challenge of his life.

As the regular season began and week after week was ripped off the calendar in September and October, wide receiver Victor Cruz was supposed to be racking up catches and touchdowns for the Giants. There was no way a knee injury he suffered last October would keep him out until the second half of the season.

Cruz thought he would be ready for Week 1 of this season. Then along came a calf injury. And with it came frustration that ruined the storybook ending that Cruz, Showtime and Giants fans envisioned for “I Am Giant: Victor Cruz.”

Against the odds, the documentary will end up preempting the return. It wasn’t supposed to be that way, and it has naturally left some of Cruz’s most vocal critics to wonder why he is so busy with outside endeavors as he tries to get back on the field.

The documentary covers Cruz’s childhood, his football career, his torn patellar tendon suffered last year against the Eagles and runs right up until his most recent setback.
