I Am Ali: Blu-ray Review











The Movie:

An intimate and heart-warming look at the man behind the legend – as we’ve never seen Ali before. I Am Ali is told through exclusive, unprecedented access to Ali’s personal archive of voice recordings combined with touching interviews and testimonials from his inner circle of family and friends, including his daughters, son, ex-wife and brother, plus legends of the boxing community including Mike Tyson, George Foreman and Gene Kilroy. Experience Ali’s extraordinary story, as a fighter, lover, brother, father — told from the inside for the very first time.

I remember being a kid and overhearing the adult talk about Ali endlessly and how great he was. It wasn’t until I got older that I really realized that he really is the greatest so I was rather excited when hearing about this documentary. This film takes a look into his life and includes stuff that I am totally surprised they got a hold of like recorded phone calls with his wife and kids. The film itself takes its time in telling stories about the fighter and doesn’t feel rushed at all which is great considering this man was a quick talking, charismatic individual. The interviews themselves are so sweet and honest, even in the moments where they talk about him not being a perfect person but always being a family man no matter what. It’s those moments that you can see just what kind of impact he has made and continues to make on his family. It was also really nice to see some interviews from some of his boxing peers and how they feel about his legacy. All in all this was a very touching documentary that touched on a lot of things that people may not have known about but I feel like there could’ve been more and easily could’ve gone on for another hour or so. Either way it was great and a must have for any fan of the man that floats like a butterfly and strings like a bee.
