We recently watched Ali. I thought that it was an interesting movie that couldn't decide what it wanted to say. As a result, it tried to say everything. I think this allows each viewer to draw their own conclusion. The other drawback is the movie seems much to long as it wanders all over the place. Personally, I found the extended musical sequences extremely overindulgent. (A funny thought, what if they had been musical as in Chicago or Moulin Rouge?)

I think that Will Smith does a good job portraying Muhammad Ali. I think many of the other actors also do well. In the end no acting was going to save this plot. If you are interested in Muhammad Ali, I would recommend When We Were Kings.

On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 66.
