  • It's great entertainment and a reminder that Ali came at just the right time.

  • Seeing Ali in a physical fight with himself as he battles Parkinson's Disease and the damage wrought by the ring is a jarring but necessary epilogue to his story.

  • Fuqua obligingly banishes the memory of Will Smith's Ali biopic and aspires to the poetry of When We Were Kings, Leon Gast's Oscar-winning 1996 documentary about Ali and George Foreman's Rumble in the Jungle.

    November 20, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The reason What's My Name transcends that flatness is the vividness of Ali's own voice and undeniable charisma.

    November 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Watching Muhammad Ali talk could be just as fun and engrossing as watching him fight, and often more so-each contributed equally to his celebrity.

  • What's My Name doesn't delve into its subject's personal life, focusing only on his career in the ring and his activism outside of it. That's more than enough to easily fill its extended running time.
