24 September 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Stupid me, saw this DVD in the bargain bin and thought I had got the Michael Mann/Will Smith film for 4.99 only to get home and find that, well, it wasn't.

Muhammad Ali is one of the greatest figures in modern history. Terence Howard looks nothing like Ali, sounds nothing like Ali, has none of Ali's charisma, does not have his physique, and makes a mockery of the fight scenes. When you pick someone to portray The Greatest, you need someone is all of these things or more otherwise the film is an insult to the Ali legend - and this film is.

It's not Howard's fault, noone could EVER portray Ali, but I feel he didn't even try. The guy who plays Sonny Liston evokes more audience sympathy than Ali, and that's just not on for an Ali film.

My house just got an extra coffee mug coaster.
