Overview

Thought by many fans to be the most exciting boxing match and certainly one of the most violent punch-fests in sports history, this almost-primal fight in the Philippines, arranged by flamboyant promoter Don King, featured longtime rivals Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, who had many basic ideological differences and were manifestly not the best of friends. The fight, attended by a number of celebrities, went on at high intensity for 14 vivid, grueling rounds. As Ali said: "It'll be a chilla, and a killa, and a thrilla, when I get the gorilla in Manila." The documentary is introduced by veteran sports commentator Jim Lampley, contains the entire fight, and includes on-scene commentary from former champion Ken Norton, the legendary "Voice of Boxing" Don Dunphy, comedian Flip Wilson, and actor Hugh O'Brian. ~ Alice Duncan

    Packs a punch!

    This is an excellant documentary; an engaging film showing insight to the two protagonist both as fighters and people and how they affected those around them and the world at large. This fight, in my opinion was hardly the greatest fight ever nor was it their best fight, both Ali and Frasier being considerably past their formidable abilities but it was an exciting and poignant one and both this fight and film are worth the price of admission.
