A movie about following young basketball players rise up from their poor beginnings and try to fight off pressures to achieve their dreams.
Sound familiar? Of course it does? So you may be asking. Is it as good as Hoop Dreams? Fu
ck no! But it's still a damn good movie.
The players are pretty interesting. But it's like 90 minutes and we deal with a whole academy of people. So we don't get enough of them. We see the pressures of one guy, see him deal and move right on.
The movie shines because we see how these academies work. If they had focused on that more than on the players than a 90 minute movie would have worked much better. As it were it tried to balance everything out.
A decent flick. I recommend if you like basketball so... pretty much to all of you here.
