The Trials of Muhammad Ali

The Trials of Muhammad Ali

Directed by Bill Siegel

Covers legendary boxer Muhammad Ali's toughest bout: his battle to overturn a five-year prison sentence for refusing US military service in Vietnam. Prior to becoming the most recognizable face on earth, Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali and found himself in the crosshairs of conflicts concerning race, religion, and wartime dissent. The film zeroes in on the most controversial years of Ali's life, when an emerging sports superhero chooses faith and conscience over fame and fortune.

This riveting portrait of world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali focuses on the public struggles he endured when he became a Muslim and a conscientious objector.

Overall, a great documentary of Muhmmed Ali's achievements and accomplishments. In contrast, today's world, he has changed the view on black individuals in the sense of motivation to believe ethically. He's Inspirational in his own distinctive way.
