Ali (2001)

Before boxer legend Muhammad Ali died in the summertime of 2016, this right here showed the movie of his legend. In fact, this was nominated for two Oscar awards. For Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor. On Will Smith and Jon Voight.

Will Smith portrayed as Muhammad Ali. Greatest boxer in the world. With wit and athletic ideas, along on defiant rage and inner grace, he changed the American landscapes forever. What was terrible to hear were the assassinations of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.

Back in the 1960’s, things were different for African Americans. And how normal white people were aware of them. That was when around 1964, the Mississippi Burning was on. When America was at war with itself. But this was more into boxing. 

During his time, Muhammad Ali fought serious boxers in this movie. Sonny Liston, George Foreman, and Joe Frazier. Two in America, and one in Africa. Everyone in Africa were cheering for him. 

Along with Will Smith and Jon Voight are Jamie Foxx, Jada Pinkett Smith, Mario Van Peebles, James Toney, and a cast of other African American actors. Except for one who did the movie ‘Blizzard’. For what he did was a failure on making a Christmas movie. 

After Muhammad Ali won the boxing match in Africa, he was married to a sexy girl named Sonji Roi. As they were happy together for many years. 

What was serious was how he was going in the U.S. Army for the Vietnam War, but he refused. He wouldn’t listen to a military soldier. He was court martialed as he was suspended from boxing for a while. He had to find a job, make money and make sure he is still in his religion. Until finally, he was back in business. 

So for a legend, on this famous boxer, 8/10 stars.
