Aro Recommended Ali


USA 2001, 159 minutes
Dir. Michael Mann
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama

Topics: African-American, Biopic, Period 1960s, Sport.


Aroview: Boxing-legend Muhammad Ali’s (Will Smith) 10 crucial years: 1964-74, are refought in this biopic composed in dynamic visuals and epic chords by dir. Mann (THE INSIDER).

Placed against the civil-rights punch-ups of the 1960s, Ali is portrayed as a crucial, beleaguered figure, especially over his refusal to fight in Vietnam, yet despite Smith’s best efforts remains the enigmatic figure. Certainly not deserving of its mixed reputation, the occasional flat rounds are forgotten against the climactic fisticuff combats.
