Opting for inspiration over insight, Venus and Serena is a starry-eyed pop doc that cannot transcend its scattershot, for-fans-only filmmaking.

Will you know Venus and Serena any better after watching this movie than you did before? Probably not.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The sisters themselves reveal a little, mostly because of Serena's unguarded imperiousness; but as a study of sports supercelebrity it's a tad subdued.

It might allow further appreciation of their accomplishments, but the one-sided approach too easily glosses over the more controversial aspects of their lives.

How much new does Venus and Serena have to tell us? Not enough.

Does the film pull back the curtain on who they are and what drives them? Not so much.

They've made the sport more interesting, both as black athletes and as women...we left Venus and Serena inspired us to get out in the sun and get moving. And call our siblings.

Devoted, protective and domineering, Richard Williams all but steals the film, his personality dimmed not a whit since the days he learned tennis from a book so he could teach his young daughters on the public courts of Compton, California.
May 7, 2013
A lot of the sibling bond, a little of the sibling rivalry and just a hint of the controversy that makes these tennis players so fascinating.

Lively if slightly worshipful ...
May 10, 2013
Fans probably won't learn much they don't already know, but the film covers enough ground to feel like the movie equivalent of one of those lengthy, in-depth articles you used to get in the magazine of your Sunday newspaper.

It doesn't quite get inside their heads, but it's brimming with vigour - rather like the girls themselves.

Think of this movie as a greatest-hits package, with some good stuff to show but nothing very new to say.
