Ali

Will Smith takes on a big task, starring as the great Muhammad Ali. This half-brilliant, half-confused biopic covers Ali's early years. Director Michael Mann (The Insider), does a dandy rope-a-dope with the pacing and gets some fine assistance from his actors, but the film can't seem to find the right focus. The boxing scenes are tops, but we get only a scant portrait of the man behind the gloves. 156 minutes
