Mann's film, which has some terrific moments, hits the highlights only. Will Smith, layered in subtle facial prosthetics in order to resemble Ali, does no disservice to the memory of the Greatest, but the best thing here is Jon Voight, who loses himself thoroughly in the role of sportscaster Howard Cosell.
