Will Smith gives a stunning performance portraying boxing legend Muhammad Ali in this biopic from acclaimed director Michael Mann. Mann gives the film a specific timeline, 1964-1974, tracing Ali's life and career from the early Cassius Clay days to his involvement in the Nation of Islam and his controversial refusal to join the US military. The film culminates with the dramatic final showdown in Zaire against George Foreman, "The Rumble in the Jungle." The film gives the viewer an eye-opening, personal look at key events in Ali's life, his friendships with Malcolm X (Mario Van Peebles) and TV broadcaster Howard Cosell (Jon Voight), and many intimate moments including the night Ali meets his wife, played by Smith's real life wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. For his uncanny portrayal of Howard Cosell, Voight earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar® nomination as did Will Smith for Best Actor.
