Not the Greatest (movie, that is)...
10 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

This movie only portray's the part of Muhammad Ali's life that dealed with him winning the heavyweight championship for the first time from Sonny Liston and portraying how he became a muslim. The movie wasn't a masterpeice, but I guess it is watchable. If the movie would have portrayed his entire life story, then it may have been better. I'm sure there are better movies than this to watch. I give it a 4 out of 10.
