Critic Reviews for Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (5)

  • All in all, it's a worthy subject to be sure. It just probably isn't the subject you might have expected.

  • Whether the film gets all the nuances right is hard for civilians to say. But round for round, the fight is surprisingly lively.

    October 4, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The actors make Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight seem better than it is, but the real Ali, with all his youth, vigor, bravado and passion, convinces us that he and his case deserved much better.

    October 4, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a Supreme Court movie that even the most fervent SCOTUS junkies might find underwhelming.

    October 3, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Filled with interesting tidbits, director Stephen Frears' film never quite coalesces - floating like a butterfly, all right, but delivering so little sting as to barely leave a mark.

  • Frears's drama is harmless; it stings like a butterfly.
