Academy Award winner "When We Were Kings" (1997) is a no-holds barred look at Muhammad Ali and George Foreman's 1974 'Rumble in the Jungle' heavyweight title bout in Zaire. Foreman was world champion and Ali was supposedly past his prime, but the fight and Ali's frank views on race and the politics of the day turned out to be cultural milestones. With Don King, James Brown, B.B. King and a classic soundtrack.

Expert Review:
An account of the legendary "Rumble in the Jungle" boxing match between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, held in Zaire. Leon Gast unfolds every possible aspect of the fight, showing how it morphed to become about something much more than boxing. It's thrilling and emotional as any sappy sports movie, and it's all real. By Daniel Schindel of ScreenPicks
