All in all, it's a worthy subject to be sure. It just probably isn't the subject you might have expected.

Whether the film gets all the nuances right is hard for civilians to say. But round for round, the fight is surprisingly lively.

All-in-all it's a strong, if unspectacular piece - an interesting, untold element to a very famous story that undoubtedly deserved to be told, and this feels like the most successful way to have played it.

The actors make Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight seem better than it is, but the real Ali, with all his youth, vigor, bravado and passion, convinces us that he and his case deserved much better.

A bland Benjamin Walker and a scowling Pablo Schreiber add little depth to their roles as mouthpieces for either side of history.

It's a Supreme Court movie that even the most fervent SCOTUS junkies might find underwhelming.

Frears's drama is harmless; it stings like a butterfly.
