Unlike the 1994 basketball doc Hoop Dreams, which investigated collateral issues of education, race and money, this merely sets a twitchy hip-hop soundtrack to an unenlightening parade of eager sporting wannabes.
Gunnin' for That #1 Spot might intrigue hardcore basketball fans-several of these young players are newly minted NBA draft picks-but even then, you'll have to contend with the shockingly unimaginative soundtrack.
Hip-hop and basketball have never been so uninspiringly brought together as they are in Beastie Boy Adam Yauch's kinetic but shallow chronicle of the buildup to the first annual Boost Mobile Elite 24 Hoops Classic.
An impressive feat on every level as Yauch brings an unbridled passion to shining a spotlight on some of the country's finest young basketball players in a way that can be appreciated by anyone and everyone.
Spot provides the basics with foot-tapping, head-bobbing flamboyance, providing the viewer with a serious helping of heart, soul, and scorching basketball action blended up into a taut, explosive documentary.
Although much of its archive footage from high school games shows up blurry, pixleated or in an otherwise raw form, it nonetheless clarifies the abilities of thoroughly committed young players executing their most impressive basketball skills.
