Great Acting!!!!
25 January 2000 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

Every biography starts from beginning and goes to the end. This got to the point. It wanted to explain the one part of Ali's career, and I think it did.

Terrence Howard portrayed the part excellent. I hope to see him in many more works soon.
