A good movie

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Stephen Frears's work, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though the title made sense, it was still rather misguiding as many people would legitimately expect a movie about boxing and not such a historical court drama.

View all Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight reviews
MUHAMMAD ALI'S GREATEST FIGHT looks at Muhammad Ali's historic Supreme Court battle from behind closed doors. When Ali was drafted into the Vietnam War at the height of his boxing career, his principled claim to conscientious objector status on religious grounds led to a lengthy legal battle that rattled the U.S. judicial system right up to the highest court in the land. Justice Harlan, a respected jurist with 15 years on the Court, finds himself at odds with the Court's status quo - as defined by Nixon appointee Chief Justice Burger - after his perspective is challenged by the contemporary ideals of his new clerk.

Well, even though the title made sense, it was still rather misguiding as many people would legitimately expect a movie about boxing and not such a historical court drama. Furthermore, even though Ali was prominently displayed on the promotional material, he wasn't even an actual character in this tale and the whole thing was more about how the Supreme Court had to deal with his case at the time. And, yet, in spite all this, it was still a decent watch. Indeed, it was actually the first movie I saw focusing only on the US Supreme Court and only therefore I thought it was incredibly interesting. They gave use a good look at this institution and its p” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- August 2015 (29 movies items)

" HBO Now- 1hr. 38min. First Viewing Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight can't help but be a bland bore. It is a well-made bore though, with a great cast and a respect for the material but, such respect leads to a lack of risks or intrigue. "
