One Night In Miami

The Story

On the night of Feb. 25, 1964, in Miami, Cassius Clay joins Jim Brown, Sam Cooke and Malcom X, and they discuss the responsibility of being successful black men during the civil rights movement.

The Good

This movie is based on a famous meeting between Malcom X, Sam Cooke, Jim Brown and Cassius Clay after he won the World title against Sonny Liston. All the cast are great in their roles and the story is good too. The look and feel of the movie really feel like it’s come straight out of the 60’s. Although the movie is based on real events there’s no real way of knowing what they talked about, but it’s pretty close to what they could have talked about. It’s also a really important moment in history and the things discussed are still relevant to what’s going on today.

The Bad

The cast and story are great, but it does go a little long considering a lot of the movie is just the characters sitting in a hotel room. Saying that they do keep the movie moving along with flashbacks of things that happened leading up to and after the events of the meeting.

The Verdict

One Night In Miami is a good movie with a great cast and story. The things that are discussed are important and still very relevant to this day. If you’re a fan of any or all of the characters, then this is a must watch for you.
