I Wasn`t Convinced
9 June 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I didn`t really hold out much hope for this TVM as I stuck it in the DVD player and after watching it my instincts had been proved right . Terrance Howard who bares absolutely no physical or vocal resemblance to Clay/Ali seems totally miscast . I can`t think of one single actor who`s given a convincing portrayal of Ali onscreen but I would say Howard`s is certainly the worst , but to be fair to him he`s not helped by the script . I`ve not read the source book this screenplay is based upon but I`ve a feeling the book may have taken liberties with a few facts . So it was a wrestling champion who made Ali believe in himself was it ? Yeah whatever . Of course it`s impossible to mention Ali without mentioning his conversion to Islam but it`s implied here that Cassius Clay wouldn`t have amounted to much if it wasn`t for Malcolm X . Well I don`t believe this for a moment , self belief is not something that can be conditioned into someone and few people in the 20th century have had as much self belief as Clay/Ali so give this biopic a miss
