A rebel film both in its subject matter and its unorthodox distribution.

Audience Reviews for Sonicsgate


Makes me angry just thinking about this well done documentary. There's a rather small audience for this though, so if you weren't a Sonics fan you probably won't care.

So if you love Basketball and have been a true fan of your team, you will understand why this film needed to be made. It tells a tale of lies that led to the WRONGFUL relocation of OUR team the SEATTLE SUPERSONICS. I've cried and been angry during movies, but never like this, I balled and wanted to scream after this film. I hold no bad feelings towards OKC as a city, but I will never root for the Thunder. Seeing this movie will piss you off and make you think. Every Sonics fan and every NBA fan should see this movie. It can happen to you and your city....scary...

Well constructed documentary about the rise and demise of Seattle's NBA franchise. Definitely a bias presentation, but one that has substance and merit. *Available online, in it's entirety, at
