Will Smith turns in his oscar worthy performance, but was the story interesting enough to warrant that? I say no. I am not a big fan of biography movies as they really don't capture the interest that comes with good fiction. Typically they end up being "good movies" but will I ever remember them? No. It's like watching a movie in highschool history class, I'd rather be watching it than listening t... read more

I honestly don't see what all the fuss was about with this movie. Yes Will Smith was pretty good acting wise but the way he talked annoyed me (I'm well aware he was playing the part of the real Ali as close as possible who, if he did originally talk like that, must of been so annoying.) and I found it difficult to get past that to actually pay attention to the movie. It also didn't help that I was... read more

Description: Muhammad Ali from 1964 to 1974, told in three braided threads. The boxer: from becoming champion to regaining the championship. Religion and politics: Cassius Clay becomes a Black Muslim, truncates a friendship with Malcolm X, perhaps is Elijah Muhammad's pawn, refuses induction into the US military, and faces a five year prison sentence while his case goes to the Supreme Court. Family: he marries twice and by 1974 marriage two is strained, defends his white trainer, has a brother in Bundini Brown, and is wily with Howard Cosell.

"Ali rähisee, että on kunkku. Smith ei näytä järin paljon roolihahmonsa esikuvalta, mutta Mannin yökuvaukset ovat taattua laatua. Muuten kyllä aika perkeleen tylsä biopic."

" Will Smith Cassius Clay / Cassius X / Muhammad Ali "Muhammad Ali (born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr.; January 17, 1942) is an American former professional boxer, generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport. A controversial and polarizing figure during his early career, Ali is now highly regarded for the skills he displayed in the ring plus the values he exemplified outside of it: religious freedom, racial justice and the triumph of principle over expedience."

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: March (43 movies items)

"March 21 "I ain't draft dodging. I ain't burning no flag. I ain't running to Canada. I'm staying right here. You want to send me to jail? Fine, you go right ahead. I've been in jail for 400 years. I could be there for 4 or 5 more, but I ain't going no 10,000 miles to help murder and kill other poor people. If I want to die, I'll die right here, right now, fightin' you, if I want to die. You my enemy, not no Chinese, no Vietcong, no Japanese. You my opposer when I want freedom. You my opposer "
