Critic Reviews for I Am Ali

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (16)

Retracing Muhammad Ali's vibrant life is an opportunity for audiences to reexamine American history, race relations, the civil rights movement, the antiwar movement and the sports world through the eyes of a perceptive black man.

Conclusive proof that it is impossible to make a boring documentary about Muhammad Ali. Mind you, the folk behind this lacklustre hagiography have certainly tried their hardest.

If I Am Ali is one of the less impressive documentaries about Muhammad Ali, that's mainly because of the exceptional standard of many of the films already made.

The word 'icon' is overused but as this charming Muhammad Ali portrait shows, occasionally it's utterly warranted.

Lewins hardly re-invents the wheel with her dutiful documentary, but the opening dialogue - between Ali, and his young daughter, Maryum - does make you shiver.

The film has one piercing insight: when Ali was banned from boxing from 1967 to 1971, these were not wasted years.
