    Synopsis


    Muhammad Ali The Greatest 1964-74
    Directed by William Klein, this documentary chronicles the life of the legendary Muhammad Ali, who began his career as an Olympic gold medalist under his birth name of Cassius Clay. With a combination of brute physical power and a famously intimidating personal charisma, Ali not only became notorious in the boxing world, but was also given a large amount of press surrounding his political views and conversion to the Muslim faith. Klein, through archival footage and several interviews, captures the sports icon in his prime years as a boxer and pop cultural figure. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

    Ali
    Notoriously obsessive director Michael Mann and star Will Smith devoted nearly two years and over 100 million dollars from the coffers of Columbia Pictures and other financiers to creating this biography of boxing great Muhammad Ali, which focuses on the ten-year period of 1964-1974. In that time, the brash, motor-mouthed athlete quickly dominates his sport, meets and marries his first wife (Jada Pinkett-Smith), converts to Islam (changing his name from Cassius Clay), and defies the United States government by refusing to submit to military conscription for duty in Vietnam. His world heavyweight champion title thus stripped from him entirely for political reasons, the champ sets about to win back his crown, culminating in a legendary unification bout against George Foreman (Charles Shufford) in Zaire, dubbed the "Rumble in the Jungle." In his travels, Ali becomes a symbol of power to disenfranchised African-Americans everywhere and meets such luminaries as Malcolm X (Mario Van Peebles), Martin Luther King Jr. (LeVar Burton) and Maya Angelou (Martha Edgerton). Ali features an all-star supporting cast that includes Jon Voight, Giancarlo Esposito, Jamie Foxx, Nona Gaye, Michael Michele, Joe Morton, Paul Rodriguez, Ron Silver, Mykelti Williamson, and Jeffrey Wright. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      Will Smith did an outstanding job on portrayal of Muhammad Ali and to get the Greatest as a bonus -- that is great

      I bought the bundle only for Ali. However, it is a great movie.
