I guess this was rushed released in advance of the far superior Michael Mann biopic and deals with the early boxing days of Cassius Clay leading up to his title fight with Sonny Liston and its immediate aftermath.
The events were better portrayed in the film The Greatest, the biopic where Muhammad Ali played himself as the older Ali.
Terrence Howard does his best to play Clay but is hampered by a poor script and made for television direction. There are at times he shows flashes of Ali in his characterisation but it is few and far between.
The film is a letdown as you would think that it would be hard to mess up with the ingredients that Ali's life as provided but this is just dull.
