SLAM Dunk!
30 May 2017 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

This is quite a film, in fact, I think this is the best basketballl movie that I have ever seen! I really really enjoyed this film, and as I left it led me to believe in the message that this film was sending to it's audience. I realize the critics hated the faith message and they hate people of faith. So what? Jesus said if they hate me, they'll hate you.

How great was this movie? I fell in love with it from being made to watch it at my school. I love films about adversity within races, and this movie was a classic. I love the message that people will mesh anyway despite outside complications. Michael Digg relationship was really profound and special. It crossed a lot of lines. The lead actor, also a dunk champion, was remarkable as Michael Digg. He took no crap, yet was scared to lose his mom. There was tension everywhere and it worked for the film. The players were really memorable to me. All of them were adorable and hilarious. A great ensemble cast effort. I watch this movie over and over and can practically say every line by heart. Great, great film. Slamma Jamma really were greater than the gods of Greek myth, and these guys were greater than any stereotype.

I was hoping for more dunking scenes, but this actually turned out to be a character drama. Based on a true story, this movie leaves you feeling good and somewhat proud. The most unrealistic thing about this movie to me was the absence of swearing that is usually associated with sports and teenagers. This film comes from the faith stables and earns all accolades on its own merits.

This is a fine inspirational film showing that people of good will can put hate aside if the better parts of their person is appealed to.

It was really funny and at the end very sad which it probably made a lot of people cry, i know i did

I could go on, but others have said so much already. It's a good action movie with nice human characters. This film renewed my faith in God. Thank you so much for making this movie
