Yeah, though apparently quite economical with the truth.

In what way? I really barely remember it, from the clips I saw looking for one to post, there seemed to be a lot of people talking about what they'd done or could do, but they aren't shown to be doing any of it.

It's been awhile since I read about it, but I recall them exaggerating/contriving the rivalry between the two main characters, and being very picky with their footage and facts to give the film a clear hero and villain.

I loved the film but they definitely built it up that way. I'm not sure how accurately it portrayed reality but it did make for a good story.
