Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 2/5 -- Sub-mediocre bio about Brown Bomber that should have been better.
A serviceable, if stilted, biopic about the eponymous hero in boxing and racial equality, who became heavyweight champ in the '30s despite overwhelming prejudice and Max Schmelling. Real-life boxer Coley Wallace brings a boxer's authenticity to his portrayal of Joe Louis.
