List Rules Any film or documentary that stars Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay in his early years).

What are the best Muhammad Ali films and documentaries? Movie and boxing fans rank all of Muhammad Ali's movies and documentaries from best to worst. Trailers featuring Ali included when available. As arguably the greatest boxer of all time, Ali has both been the subject of about as many documentary films as any 20th century human can be, and has also appeared in studio movies.

The order of these top Muhammad Ali films is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated Muhammad Ali movies will be at the top of the list. Muhammad Ali is known as the greatest; films of Ali have always been able to find an audience, though it would be debatable if any of these would be high on the list of best boxing movies of all time. 

If you think the best Muhammad Ali role isn't at the top, then vote it up so it has the chance to become number one. The greatest Muhammad Ali performances may not necessarily come from the best movies, but rather from the ring and in interviews.

List features films like The Greatest and Ali's Dozen.

"This list answers the questions, "What are the best Muhammad Ali movies?" and "What are the greatest Muhammad Ali roles of all time?"
