For such a compelling life Ali the movie is just boring. The movie focuses on just a small part of the life of this extraordinary individual. It just touches the surface on his faith, family, fights to bring us in but not to keep us watching. The energy of the film instead is focused on his love life which really isn’t what we came to the ring to see. Ali’s transformation from someone who fought the system to one who found a way to love it would have been more compelling but of course that’s not the true story Hollywood would want you to see. Ali was a movie that threw many a punch but in the end was knocked out from boredom.
** Good Acting has to count for something.
