Lists: Film Quest 2015 - The Challenge Part II, Boxing

Brief Synopsis: "In 1964, a brash new pro boxer, fresh from his olympic gold medal victory, explodes on to the scene: Cassius Clay. Bold and outspoken, he cuts an entirely new image for African American's in sport with his proud public self confidence and his unapologetic belief that he is the greatest boxer of all time. Yet at the top of his game, both Ali's personal and professional lives face the ultimate test."

Dan O'Neill60 - Ali lost me at points with its long time limit of scenes that just donít matter, and although Smith is good here as Ali, it doesnít seem like he captured the whole essence of Ali.
