NYT Review: In Memory, Forever Floating Like a Butterfly

“I Am Ali,” a documentary about the boxing legend, covers some familiar territory but offers enticing vintage clips. — Ben Kenigsberg Read the review

Movie Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes®
 

It would be hard to watch the movie and not take something from it.

Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, 2014-10-09

 

I Am Ali's contributions to the mountain of extant Ali scholarship are slight, but the privilege of eavesdropping on a man who inspired so many while he asks his little girl Maryum if she's yet determined her purpose on Earth is not.

Chris Klimek, NPR, 2014-10-09

 

A composite portrait of a complicated figure. ... Lewins' film is an affectionate series of memories, as recalled by Ali's family and associates.

Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, 2014-10-09

 

"I Am Ali" goes the full 12 rounds with his complete biography.

Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News, 2014-10-08

 

Unless you have an insatiable appetite for goo-goo father-daughter talks, the recordings are tedious.

David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2014-10-10

 

"I Am Ali" merely reminds us of the boxer's appeal, without adding to our understanding.

Mark Jenkins, Washington Post, 2014-10-09

 

Ultimately, this feels like a hagiographic official portrait that takes the sting out of the proverbial bee.

Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York, 2014-10-07

 

If you've been dying to hear the three-time heavyweight champion have endearingly mundane telephone conversations with his wife and kids, this is the documentary for you.

Michael Nordine, Village Voice, 2014-10-07
