News & Interviews for Thunderstruck
Critic Reviews for Thunderstruck
Sells itself on durable messages about strong work ethic, the importance of community relations and playing to one's individual potential.
Headlining a less-than-mediocre kids' movie taints one's brand rather than enhancing it. Just ask Shaq.
It might be more effective with a hint of subtlety and a premise that isn't so flimsy and formulaic.
The film has a great, if not commonplace, message: Work hard to get ahead. Don't take any shortcuts. Nothing wrong with kids wasting 90 minutes if they come away with that theme.
Audience Reviews for Thunderstruck
NBA superstar Kevin Durant has got game. His biggest fan has none. Things are about to switch!
Good movie! One great message in this film is that talent isn't something you get; talent is something that you earn with hard work and dedication. It was predictable in its format and that last 10 minutes were basically a carbon copy of most other movies of this type, so don't be shocked. It isn't an Oscar contender, but compared to other movies starring athletes, this was a good one.
A fun and energetic family basketball movie starring Kevin Durant AS HIMSELF, a basketball star who switches talent with a klutzy 16 year old fan. When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team...while Kevin Durant suddenly can't make a shot to save his life. But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner involves working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero's season.
A nonsensical but fun movie that involves a boy getting Kevin Durant's basketball talent. It had annoying moments, but I enjoyed it for the most part. (First and only viewing - 4/22/2016)
This is a good movie it is very cool that they have Kevin Durant playing in this movie Kevin Durant is a good basketball player and this is a funny movie how Brian is not good at playing basketball but then all of a sudden turns good at playing basketball. Of course we all know that Brian took KD's talent away but then gave it back to him. We know that you can't take someone's talent away but every time I watch this movie I think of myself as Kevin Durrant this is a good movie to watch I would recommend it.
KD is a better role model i do think he is a better player LeBron is not a good role model so I would go with KD
