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

Nowadays, Will Smith seems to be somewhat struggling with his career. On the other hand, I don’t think there are any actors left who can secure a box-office hit only with their name on the poster. Anyway, for more than a decade, Smith completely ruled the box-office and he he holds the record for the actor to star in the most consecutive movies grossing at least $100 million. Right at the middle... read more
View all Ali reviews
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. Throughout, Ali keeps his own counsel: in the ring, at the induction center when he won't step forwa ... (more)

A good movie

“Nowadays, Will Smith seems to be somewhat struggling with his career. On the other hand, I don’t think there are any actors left who can secure a box-office hit only with their name on the poster. Anyway, for more than a decade, Smith completely ruled the box-office and he he holds the record for the actor to star in the most consecutive movies grossing at least $100 million. Right at the middle of this Golden age, he made also his attempt for Oscar glory with this high-profile biopic. Obviously, you might wonder if Will Smith was the best choice to play probably the most famous boxer that ever lived since he never displayed some really impressive acting skills so far but I thought he was actually pretty good. Eventually, the main issue with this movie was maybe that it was directed by M” read more

"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 - June 3, 2016) was 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 "
