Audience Reviews for More Than a Game
If not for the likable team of the "Fab Five" this movie would fall flat on its face. And honestly... this movie tries a little hard to portray them as underdogs the entire movie but its far from believable on that front. I mean when you lose a total of what? 2 games in your entire tenure at high school at even a national division level you are not an underdog. Apart from that minor gripe this is an interesting documentary that features some great in-game footage, one on one interviews, family footage, and everything under the sun you could ever want to know about LeBron's humble beginnings. It also shows some insight into why "The Decision" ever happened and where the phrase "I will be taking my talents to..." came from.
