The best movie about Muhammad Ali
14 July 2004 | by aricrenesSee all my reviews

The best movie about Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay ). The movie accounts the life of Ali since the start , no forgetting neither moment : The gold medal on the Olympics , the conversion to the Islamismo , the first coach , the friendship with Malcolm X , the no departure to the war, the relation with the brother and the standpoint of your father about your life.

At the contrary of the boring '' Ali (2001'') with Will Smith , this movie no remain boring em neither moment.

Thanks to this movie the director Leon Ichaso was called to do the biography of Hendrix.
