I used to play high school basketball and this movie just gave me a whole new perspective on how life works. This movie teaches not just athletes, but everyone else the importance of teamwork and how you can be successful in life. I would recommend watching it.

Awesome movie. It's certainly nothing new when it comes to the story, but with great style, good direction, and incredible commitment and performances from the cast, especially Jackson, the formulaic plot devices can be quickly forgiven.

Samuel L Jackson delivers is this MTV-produced sports drama, as do all the young actors portraying the Richmond Oiler basketball team. Its believable in its dramatic, motivational sort of way, and its charming. What makes this film is the passion and care put into it. This is sports drama done right.

The soundtrack is also on point, and it helps the rough streets of Richmond come alive and shows audiences the reality of the situation for some of these inner-city kids.

It's formulaic but nevertheless Samuel L. Jackson leads an inspiring film.

A fantastic basketball film that is powered by a phenomenal central performance from Samuel L. Jackson in a based on true events lead role. It wasn't a cliche typical lame sports movie where the underdog wins at the end and all is good in the world. This movie was much deeper and much more dramatic and entertaining than that! It was much better than I had expected!

A little long, but a strong message and story. And Samuel L Jackson is cool, per usual.

Samuel L. Jackson is clearly pleased to be playing this role, but it's one we've seen so many times before. Full review later.

Good, but overlong. Story was very uplifting, and understandably cheesy in some parts.

A solid sports drama. Captures the essence of the youth in that time and place. Good acting all around. It's engaging and has a positive message. It's why you watch sports dramas.
