Ep. 89 - Ali

If you're looking for a chat about The Greatest, you're going to have to tune in our latest. We threw around words about butterflies and birds, but we also did agree about that bad man Ali. Muhammad's extraordinary life is given short shrift because Michael Mann's film is too slow and yet too swift. M
ister Ali of course did so much more than just fight in the ring, but Mann's attempts to jam so much in makes the movie feel lacking. Will Smith is normally a charisma machine, yet here he's mostly quiet and serene. Then again, everything is too tamped down and muted in this biopic about a world champion who was undisputed.
So just days before the Rumble In The Jungle's anniversary, we hope you don't rope a dope, but just listen to our podcast about Ali.
