  • Watching Muhammad Ali talk could be just as fun and engrossing as watching him fight, and often more so-each contributed equally to his celebrity.

  • What's My Name doesn't delve into its subject's personal life, focusing only on his career in the ring and his activism outside of it. That's more than enough to easily fill its extended running time.

  • He was, indeed, the greatest, and while "What's My Name" clearly portrays those qualities, as constructed, it's merely pretty good.

  • The greatness of [it] is that if you're young and you know very little of Muhammad Ali, this would be the perfect place to start learning about him - but if you remember Ali in his prime and you're well-versed in his history, it's STILL a must-see...

  • Fuqua's stirring new documentary almost exclusively uses archival footage of the loquacious icon talking, boasting, shouting, and jiving to trace the arc of his one-of-a-kind career which was so incident-packed that it's broken into two parts.

  • An idealized but vivid and fascinating portrait of a career.
