First watch Facing Ali(2009), then watch this boxing biopic based on George Foreman's life.

I have a great admiration and respect for George Foreman. Having lost the World Heavyweight title to Muhammad Ali, his comeback story is one that begs to be seen. Having almost died after a boxing match, George credited his resurrection to Jesus and became a preacher and preached on the streets first. Due to financial problems from mishandling of his funds, George was forced to get back into the ring one last time.

There's a title fight between Tommy Morrision(the real-life boxer who starred in Rocky V 1990) and Foreman that you should see. Shannon Briggs, Tommy Morrison, Evander Holyfield, Jimmy Young, and Muhammad Ali are the five boxers who have beaten Foreman. Foreman's last fight I believe was with Shannon Briggs. Briggs won by a majority decision(MD). In a total of 81 fights, George has won an incredible 76 and losing only five times. Had he boxed more this record could've been huge. He was a huge powerhouse of a boxer and only a very few could withstand his punches.

The movie deals with Foreman's life as a youngster, quickly moving into his boxing career where he faced the likes of Joe Frazier. The Muhammad Ali match dubbed the "Rumble In The Jungle" is the highlight. I believe the real actual whole match is available free to see online if you are an enthusiast. I watched Facing Ali that showed actual highlights from the fight so I did not care to see the full fight. The movie's acting, directing, sound-effects and music are top-notch. Khris Davis plays Big George and Sullivan Jones plays Ali. I thought Jones was terrific in his portrayal of the brash and arrogant Muhammad Ali dubbed "The Mouth Of The South".

Verdict: it's way better than Creed 3(2023) and of course it's based on the true life story of a "real-life" boxer.

Other boxing movies: Dempsey(1983), Brutal Glory(1989), Gladiator(1992), Fighting Tommy Riley(2004), Cinderella Man(2005).

Thanks for reading this review and as Mister Spock says, live long and prosper.

Very Much Inspirational

Great acting and how that it may not win awards or that over in the critics viewpoint on it. But that George Foreman had such a very hard life growing up and that he at first didn't want anything to do with God. Would you believe that?!

Due to not having a father and growing up in beyond poverty and his mother wanting him to turn his life around. All he ever did good in his words is that over in boxing. He fought to stay alive but it was in the Jobs Corps and Forest Whitaker's character saved him from a life of crime that he was doing to begin with.

After a personal crisis, he turns his life around and quits boxing and marries his second wife that he is still married to. And becomes a preacher. That is an answer to his mother's prayers. But after financial hardships, he reluctantly returns with the reluctant agreement with his wife.

He also sells grills and also in the setting his family up for life. Just really a great movie. No cursing nor that much violence except for the boxing matches. Go see it.

Wow, what an amazing story and journey.

I sure learned a lot from this biographical film, and Foreman's story is like one of those fictional underdog Hollywood films, but it's true. It doesn't get much better than that. All casting and performances where excellent, especially Sullivan Jones who emulated Muhammad Ali perfectly. Even though the pacing felt a little slow at times, the 129 min runtime still flew by with the many vast sub-plots that contributed to Foreman's life story. The screenplay had great fluidity and cohesiveness to it, and was very easy to follow, albeit a little reserved. My only complaint was that I felt the action/fight sequences were filmed underwhelmingly, and could've used more dramatics and better choreography. Plus I felt they were a little too short and rushed, and the focus was more on the story than the action. I'm ok with that, because I wasn't expecting a Rocky or Creed film, but the biographical story of a legendary human being, and that's exactly what I got.
