ALI (2001 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Ali—do not miss this film—becomes a winner from the word go. Will Smith makes a superb Ali. The movie becomes another terrific addition to his growing list of absolutely great entertainment titles (Independence Day, Men In Black, Pursuit of Happyness, Enemy of the State, Legend of Bagger Vance). Watch for Jon Voight, Jeffery Wright, Jaime Foxx, Mario Van Peebles, and Bruce McGill.

Storyline

Ali (Will Smith) fights against Sonny Liston (Michael Bentt) and ends the story with the famous fight against George Foreman (Charles Shufford).
