Great movie covering the early years of Ali's boxing career
3 April 2000 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. I initially thought it was going to cover Ali's entire life, and I was a little disappointed when I discovered that this was not the case. However, in retrospect, it's evident that a two-part series could not have done his entire life justice. King of the World provided the audience with an insight into the formative years of Ali's boxing career that the average person has probably not been privileged to. We actually see a transformation of a shy young man with a slight stuttering problem into a bold young man with an exceptional ability to handle the media and the audacity to call himself "The Greatest", and rightfully so.
