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 to a teacher lecture, but either way I am still not going to remember anything.
