Don't waste yo' money! Saw the movie Ali last night and it was pretty bad. Basically a long drawn out music video, it was very low on dialogue and what there was you probably remember from Ali's endless media appearances over the year. The movie begins as though Casius Clay just appears on the scene, no mention that he had fought in the Olympics for the US and then moves along like a civil rights march.

Two items of note from the movie. The fight scenes were true to form. Basically Ali was beat to death but always remained standing, so he won! Secondly, Jon Voight's portrayal of Howard Cossell was so bad that it was almost good, after awhile.
