Storyline

A look at the events leading up to and including the legendary March 1971 bout between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. The film also looks at the political and social factors that helped to make this fight more than just an ordinary boxing match between two of the greatest heavyweight champions that ever lived as Ali was a symbol for liberals, militant blacks and hippies and Frazier was a symbol for the more conservative elements for society.

One Helluva Documentary
24 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is one of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen. It perfectly discusses the events that led up to the first fight in the greatest rivalry in the history of boxing. The film also captures what the mood of the country at the time of the fight and how it was divided along racial, generational and socio-economic lines. The thing I really found fascinating was the fact that Ali would call Frazier an "Uncle Tom", due to the fact that Frazier was perceived as being the "good" black and Ali was perceived as being more militant. Frazier took that as a personal insult whereas Ali saw it as a way to promote the fight. Also, the coda at the end of the fight showing how even though the forces that Frazier allegedly represented (Nixon, conservatives and Frazier himself) wound up winning that night eventually wound up losing within a few years of that special night in March of 1971.
