Audience Reviews for Facing Ali


A good filn that talks with the boxers of the past when everybody knew who these boxers were along with the Champ Muhammad Ali. Ask anybody back between 1960-1978 who the Boxing Champ of the world was they would say ALI, ask today and 9 out of 10 people will say I don't know. The only dissapointing part of the film no modern day interview with Ali. Still 3 1/2 stars

An honest and powerful documentary on the fighting career of Mohamed Ali as told by his opponents. Greatest boxer there ever was.

Wu Chouin

Super Reviewer

One of the better boxer documentaries out there. I peffer "Tyson" because he was the fighter in my era, but I haven'y seen all the footage of Ali fights. Somebody really familier with Ali may know everything in the film and non-boxing fans may not like it as much.
