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

I already saw this movie (I think I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released) but, since it was such a long time ago, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, there is no denying that it was a fascinating story dealing with one of the greatest athletes that ever lived but, to be honest, this movie turned out to be only decent, Iโ€™m afraid. At some point, Spike Lee was also... 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. Throughout, Ali keeps his own counsel: in the ring, at the induction center when he won't step forwa ... (more)

A Complete Review of Michael Mann's work (12 movies items)

" Cast : Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Jon Voight, Mario Van Peebles, Jeffrey Wright, Jada Pinkett Smith, Giancarlo Esposito What was it about? A biography of sports legend Muhammad Ali, focusing on his triumphs and controversies between 1964 and 1974. My two cents: Nowadays, Will Smith seems to be somewhat struggling with his career. On the other hand, I donโ€™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, Smi"
