《後勁：王建民》的英文片名是 LATE LIFE: THE CHIEN-MING WANG STORY。Late Life 是大聯盟球探撰寫報告使用的詞彙，形容球進本壘板前的尾勁，而王建民擅投的伸卡球（Sinker），也就是使球下沉及製造打者擊出滾地球的球路，必須有尾勁才完美，這也是王建民的獨到之處。
這部電影由加拿大陳惟揚執導，特別的是，電影的製片之一楊明燊（Brian Yang），也是紀錄片 Linsanity 的製片，當時他還獲邀拍攝年僅14歲的韓裔美籍雪板好手 Chloe Kim 的紀錄片，也提到要拍一部台灣棒球的紀錄片。籍華裔導演

Chien-Ming Wang was a supernova in Taiwan. His success as the Ace of the New York Yankees rocketed him into a cult-like status on the island nation. His face was so ubiquitous and his impact so meaningful, that he was donned the title of “Pride of Taiwan” – a national honor he was never fully comfortable with. Wang, a man of quiet, humble disposition, never sought out the attention. All he wanted to do was play.
We find Chien-Ming now at age 35, bouncing around the Independent and Minor Leagues, a fallen icon. The film delves into his comeback attempts, his life between endless rehab programs, his lengthy and often lonely stints away from home and family, and the inner struggles and weight he carries on his injured shoulders. We follow him as he works towards a singular goal: to fight his way back into the Major Leagues.
How much dedication and persistence does it take to realize a dream? How much courage does it take to make it back to the mound? Late Life: The Chien-Ming Wang Story tracks an extraordinary journey of an ordinary man, of someone who fell from the top and is willing to fight his way back up again.
