‘Facing Ali’ Takes You Inside the Ring
The latest sports documentary to come to DVD is “Facing Ali“, based on the book by Stephen Brunt. Muhammad Ali defeated almost every top fighter of the golden age of boxing. Facing Ali turns the cameras on some of Ali’s biggest rivals including George Chuvalo, Sir Henry Cooper, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Larry Holmes, Ron Lyle, Ken Norton, Earnie Shavers, Leon Spinks and Ernie Terrell. They take you inside the ring and provide an impacting perspective on the 3-time champ.
The DVD contains some slick bonus materials including animated trivia cards for each of the boxers, featurettes that look at the fighters and their experiences with Ali, the making of the film and the unique way this book was adapted for the screen as well as the process used to restore and upgrade the archival fight footage to HD quality.
If you’re looking for a way to use those holiday gift cards, “Facing Ali” would be a good choice.
