Kritikeranmeldelser

One of the best moments shows the joy that spreads across Ali’s face as he, thrilled by his own verbal pyrotechnics, recites a signature impromptu rhyme after a press conference at the Waldorf Astoria announcing the Kinshasa brawl: “Last night I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick.” He pauses before concluding the killer couplet: “I’m so mean, I make medicine sick.” Ali’s lingual dexterity shows up the inanities of [some] of the reputedly silver-tongued pundits in the film.
