Nothing New! 4/10
27 March 2015 | by leonblackwoodSee all my reviews

Review: I was really looking forward to this movie because it's been some time since there has been a documentary on Ali, but this movie didn't really show anything that we don't already know. I liked the footage were they are playing the hidden tapes of Ali talking to his daughter and the interviews with Tyson and Jim Brown but most of the information is things that we have heard time and time again about the legend. I was also hoping to see some footage of Ali nowadays but the director chose to stick with old footage. We all know that he was one of the greatest fighters of all time and that he didn't shy away from speaking his mind so I didn't really see the point of this documentary. It was more of a movie about him as a devoting father and how much he cared about family, even though he couldn't help playing away from home. All of the boxing footage was OK but, once again, it isn't anything that we haven't seen before. In all, it's good that they are paying respect to a man who is suffering with Parkinson's decease and has achieved so much in his life but the documentary isn't anything new. Watchable!   

Round-Up: This film really does show that Ali was a number one entertainer and that he cared a lot about his family and fans. The story about the sick kid who was dying from cancer was touching and when he let one of his fans stay in his house, it really did show that he has a loving heart. It was also good to see how he treated his family, especially his brother and his daughter when she was young but I still didn't learn anything new about the man himself. I honestly feel that the movie Ali, was more of a deep insight about the man and the people around him. Don't get me wrong, it is a watchable film and I'm sure that a lot of boxing fans, or fans of Ali, will enjoy the film but I honestly thing that there was more to the man that what the public already know. It doesn't really touch on his various relationships or how he treated his women but when you think about the amount of children he has, which is 9, he obviously was a ladies man. At 73, he is still classed as the best boxer of all time, close to Tyson in his prime, but it's sad to see him loose his sharp wit and supreme boxing skills, to a illness which must be hard to live with.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their boxing documentaries about the boxing legend, Muhammad Ali, and his devoting love for his kids and his family. 4/10
