not should, it had to be done better!
16 May 2019 | by lakifreestyleSee all my reviews

This is my first review here, and for the greatest sport figure of all time, I must say - It had to be done better! Why? There are many examples, but I will talk on two things: As I said, Ali was and is original G.O.A.T. If you have quality material for someone, that is with him. I mean, cmon, dude participated in two most important sport and especially boxing event in 20th century: Rumble in the Jungle and Thriller in Manila. I will skip Rumble in the Jungle even there was many critics about low explanation, everything presented so fast, but as I say; I will focus on one fight - Thriller in Mania. Brothers and sisters, this fight was not called "Thriller" just like that, and in this documentary it was presented in maybe 1.5min or less. Biggest thiller in boxing history and it is not mentioned or explained, from emotionaly aspect especially, that Fraizer almost got BLIND! Unbelievable!

Second thing: Damn ENDING. On every documentary you are crying at the end because there is presented death and especially peoples reaction because of death of main character; and I cried because that was missing. How is that possible??? I mean, I've cried when Ali died. Children from Africa which doesn't even have TV knew him and cried as well, not to mention public reaction of famous people etc etc. Nothing.

He said that God gave him disease to let him know that he is actualy number one, and it's not mentioned also.

So 7 of 10 just because of Ali, but it had to be done better!
