About the Movie
Superstar Will Smith gives the performance of his career as boxing legend Muhammad Ali in a visually amazing epic drama from Academy Award® nominated director Michael Mann. Muhammad Ali thrilled the world with his ground-breaking boxing victories in the '60s and '70s. But the man behind the legend is grappling with a tumultuous romantic life, his deeply held religious beliefs and the pressures ofstaying on top. A quick-witted, winning personality and strong friendships with close associates, including renowned newscaster Howard Cosell (Golden Globe® nominee Jon Voight), help Ali "float like a butterfly and sting like a bee." But faced with a life-changing conflict outside of the ring, the famously opinionated boxer is forced to rely on the one person he knows the best: himself.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This could be the only movie we'll get on the fighter, and it's just not good enough.
Fresh: Filled with vivid cameos and set to an infectious soul beat that effectively covers the underlying hum of calculated precision.
Fresh: If Michael Mann's new biopic of Muhammad Ali is not right up there with the gold standard of boxing biographies, Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro's Raging Bull, it misses by only a whisker.
Fresh: Smith makes contact with enough of Ali's swagger, sweetness, wit, and pride to convince us that justice is being done to the boxing champion.
Fun.... but that's all there is to it.
The actors were excellent but for some reason...... i just didn't "feel" the movie... Can't believe no one has ever reviewed this...
an amazing movie
what else can i say, it was really good.
Excellent movie reliving Alis' greatness in the ring...
Will Smith was perfect for the lead role of this film (as he always is)....The enitre cast was wonderful, the movie itself was great and did a terrific job to go back in time and show this generation exactly who Ali was. I put this movie up against some of the all time great sports movies...
