Rare archival footage of Ali in many of his fights.

One never has to worry about foul language when showing an Ali film in the classroom.

Ali: The Man, The Moves, The Mouth, is full of the same content we have seen in every other documentary on Ali. Nothing new here.

There is no question that Muhammad Ali was the greatest fighter of the 20th century and his personality endeared him to a generation, but, did we need another documentary on his career?

Having Bert Sugar involved certainly makes this project more attractive, but relegating this legendary writer, sportscaster, and boxing historian, to narrator rather than allowing him to regale the audience with insightful stories was a simple waste of resources.

This latest release which became available on July 24th 2012 from Facts That Matter studio is certainly not without merit. It is a well paced and enjoyable documentary on the life and career of Muhammad Ali. The challenge is that much, if not all, of the material has been seen before. There is virtually no acknowledgement of Howard Cosell, who appears in a few segments, but the failure to mention him or his involvement with Ali and his career is distracting as one is left to speculate as to the reason for the exclusion. At only 60 minutes, the film is far too short, and as it rushes through the end of Ali's career and feebly attempts to bring the audience up to date on the life of the champ, it appears that perhaps the producers ran out of money or time, and left us with an incomplete story.

Where the documentary succeeds and distinguishes itself from other projects is in the early years of the champ's life with footage of Ali in Golden Gloves competitions and the Olympics. The true fan will be thrilled by the site of a youthful and energetic Cassius Clay sporting his gold medal with pride.

A very broad but detailed trail of "The Greatest" athlete, entertainer, social activist life, times, achievements, lowland highs. For those who gred up watching the grainy black & white images of ALI, the fights, and the commentary (Howard), nostalgic memories will flood back. And for others it will inspire, mezmerize, stupify many on how "The Greatest" became a foundational icon of change in America and the world.

Fantastic! Rare archival footage of Ali in many of his fights. Covers his disbarment from boxing because of his refusal to be drafted into the army and go to Vietnam. Ali fans will love this film.

This fast-paced and thorough biography includes plenty of video and photos of Ali's life. It does a great job of weaving in the socio-political obstacles he dealt with.

A Chinese philosopher once said - "May you live in interesting times." Being born in the 1950's, I have indeed lived in interesting times. One of the best of these times was Muhammad Ali - The Greatest. I was an early fan after the 1st Liston fight, and loved the way he played the media. Ali was not only the best of his time , but maybe the best of all time. Not just for what he did in the ring, but also for what he did outside the ring. It was good to see the early part of his career when he was still a teen & in his prime. I thought I had seen most documentaries about his life, but this one had some unseen footage, and was a good highlight film of his fights & life. Not a 5 star, but close. I would like to give 4 and a half stars. Enjoy.
