I bought this movie mainly for footage of Ali and his contemporaries, and therefore wasn't expecting much of a plot or a very deep documentary. For this reason I wasn't disappointed. Keep in mind that this film was primarily something for Ali to do during his exile that would make money. It's full of interesting quotes and clips that show a closer side of Ali and make for an enjoyable viewing. At times it slips into an argument with famed boxing trainer Cus D'Amato over whether or not Muhammad Ali is really the best boxer of his time (D'Amato thinks otherwise) that is a little pointless as it is never resolved.

I think this film is best as a companion to other films, such as Ali, The Greatest, and/or When We Were Kings. If you love Ali, you'll like this.

A.K.A. Cassius Clay is a time capsule documentary look at the life of Muhammad Ali before he was reinstated by the US boxing commission for refusing to be drafted during the Vietnam War. The film takes us from the early life of Ali until the present day (circa. 1968). One of the highlights of this film is his look at the older fighters along with Cus D'Amato and his demonstration of the Ali Shuffle. His conversion to Islam and the affect it had on his career is documented as well. If you're a fight fan this is a must for you.

Highly recommended

Five stars is not enough. Ali was the greatest both inside and outside of the ring. All Americans, and anyone anywhere that hold that freedom and human rights must be universal, should see this video. Ali was a moral giant with a stalwart internalized sense of right and wrong. He would not, and did not, bow down to a racist establishment power structure that offered odds vastly against him sustaining himself if he stood against it. He was willing to risk all of the fame and fortune that he had miraculously achieved, to suffer being barred from his profession forever if necessary, and even to go to jail. He intended to follow his spiritual/moral core beliefs no matter what. He did so and he paid dearly. He lost what many believed might have been his best 3 years in the ring when he was barred from fighting for that period of time, he had difficulty in making a living, he drew chagrin for being a black Muslim...but, when the smoke cleared he came off of the ropes victorious. This story is a salute to the human spirit of a true champion of the human race and I'm not referring to his superb boxing. His courage and dedication was an inspiration and to the benefit of
humanity. He was, and will remain, a true hero. Everyone should see this video. It should be mandatory in schools.

Released in '70, before Frazier, Foreman, Spinks, etc., it's amazing how much substance there already is. The first third of this legend's story, as told here, is more than the Mike Tysons of this world will clock in with for a lifetime.

I watch 3 different movies or documentary about Ali, and they are all good movies. He is one of the greatest person that Earth have ever had, and I love to learn everything possible about that man.
