The review of this Movie prepared by Brandon Swenson
Will Smith is smooth in playing the man who "floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee." Many of Muhammad Ali's grestest moments are chronicled here, such as the 1960 Olympics in Rome and the "Thriller in Manila" with archrival Joe Frazier (Jamie Foxx). You'll also be touched by his appearance at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

Ali is based on a ten year section of the boxer Muhammed Ali's life, and is based on the peak of his career; from 1964, the year he won the Rom Olympics belt, upto 1974, the year of the rumble in the Jungle. This film provides a fascinating in-sight into the Legend's somewhat unknown personal life, of which only certain aspects were made public. Will Smith depicts Ali perfectly, even down to his accent and look. The three hour length of the film feels like minutes due to the beatiful chromography.
The review of this Movie prepared by james kennaby
Ali is tells the story of the boxing great Muhammad Ali. The film chronicles his rise to the heavy weight champion of the world and his life while that occurs. Some of the facts of Ali's life as told in the film are disputable but, the film itsself is a beautiful work of art. Will Smith does a tremendous job playing Ali.
