...[Shakur] again comes off as an acting natural...
This street-smart drama captures basketball kinetics even better than BLUE CHIPS did...
A formula script, but a mobile camera, pulsing rap soundtrack and a game cast whip up the necessary fizz. Full Review
It's Shakur who steals the show. The rapper's offscreen legal problems are well known, but there's no denying his power as an actor.
A stultifying cliche of a movie -- even by sports-flick standards -- this basketball allegory doesn't get anywhere near the rim. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- A highly memorable movie
Rating: 2/5 -- It ain't got game. Full Review
Inner city basketball players give it everything they've got in a local tournament to get out of the 'hood.'
Ambitious high school senior Kyle-Lee has a lot going on in his life. Not only is he anxiously waiting to hear from Georgetown about his college basketball scholarship, he's also dealing with the demands of a strict coach who doesn't want him hanging in the 'hood. Then there's his mother's new relationship with a security guard, which Kyle doesn't appreciate. To top it all off, his good friend Birdie -- a neighborhood gangster -- wants to know why Kyle won't hang out anymore. Hopefully, things will work out for the troubled teen, but only if he keeps his eyes on the prize.
