  • Ali is a profound yet flawed biopic, masterfully acted but missing depth.

  • Video: 70

  • Ali's 1080p transfer is commendable, albeit with flaws. Film segments are robust, video parts and DNR reveal noise and artifacts. The gritty, desaturated aesthetic fits Mann's vision, with nuanced colors and deep blacks, despite occasional flat textures and light whites. Overall, a faithful yet imperfect representation.

  • Audio: 73

  • Ali's Blu-ray audio impresses with immersive depth and clarity, featuring rich crowd ambience and detailed music, though slightly marred by subdued surrounds and underwhelming LFE in less action-driven scenes.

  • Extra: 55

  • The Blu-ray release of Ali features a Mann-revised film, behind-the-scenes, training insights, authentic on-set experiences with Ali, and a digital copy, capturing the essence of Ali's life and career in detail.

  • Movie: 75

  • Michael Mann's 'Ali' intricately explores Muhammad Ali's life beyond the ring, emphasizing his character, beliefs, and cultural impact over boxing, highlighted by Will Smith's transformative role.
