Boring.......
16 April 2002 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I expected a good boxing movie not a long-winded and boring movie. David Ramsey looks absolutely not like Muhammad Ali and he can`t act like Ali. Will Smith as Muhammad Ali in Michael Mann's Ali is amazing but David Ramsey delivers a piece of rubbish with his role as Muhammad Ali, actually he isn't a bad actor but he is just not the one to play Muhammad Ali...... Vondie Curtis-Hall is perfect as Drew "Bundini" Brown but Joe Morton as Malcolm X is a piece of garbage. The boxing scenes are not action-packed like Rocky, Raging Bull and Ali..... The plot is poor and the script is miserable. Watch this movie only if you are a fan of Vondie Curtis-Hall, this could be his best performance ever......
