Excellent Movie - powerful and sweeping sports movie...
10 March 2017 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

I saw this today at a screening and I was left in tears. Extremely moving film - you will know when you see it. They're not marketing it right. It's not a 'slam dunk' movie, but a brilliant redemption story. I thought it was a jock's movie about basketball. It is not.

The story about a guy who loses everything is extremely compelling - the guy who played the lead actor is not only a great basketball player, but an extremely good actor! What a find.

This is quite simply a superb movie about faith, love, basketball (slam dunking) and what is really important in life. A must for everyone. The acting is really pretty good - there's no Tom Cruise here, but there is plenty of heart and soul from the entire cast!

Hard to believe a movie with this much drama, acting and pathos was created with only a one million dollar budget! It is not only entertaining and funny but didactic as well. Don't miss this one - do it for yourself - do it for God!
