5.0 out of 5 stars The best documentary ever
This is magical stuff. Whether you're a fight fan or not, the way this film is made is beyond compare. Outlining Ali's early rise from Louisville, Kentucky to become heaviweight champion, and then in detail through the build up to the Rumble in the Jungle fight with Foreman in Zaire, this is not merely a story about a boxer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Documentary, Not So Great Fight Comentary
I have watched this DVD time and time again, but I have also watched the actual fight time and time again.

The more "strictly" documentary part of the film is great, how the fight came about, the problems leading up to it, the music festival that accompanied the fight, first hand accounts from Ali, Foreman, Don King and the journalists that covered the bout at...

5.0 out of 5 stars when we were kings, 17 Jan. 2011

This review is from: When We Were Kings [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
brilliant dvd, for any boxing fan worth viewing. Great combination of boxing history, as well as the political tensions related to the match. A classic movie, not a watch-once-and-forget about it dvd.
