This is Dwayne Johnson at his best, proving again why he's the real deal as an actor, not just as an action star.

Audience Reviews for Ballers: Season 5

  • Apr 21, 2020
    I was really into seasons 1-3. Then 4 came and the show seemed to abandoned everything it had going for it. Like when a team wins a championship and lets all their stars go before the next season. Season 4 was a crap premise and never felt right. They also dabbed a bit into politics in a few cringe moments. Maybe it's because they knew Season 5 would be the last before they made it, but instead of returning to what made the show binge-worthy the first 3 years, they doubled-down on the garbage that was season 4. More politics. More unbelievable show runners. Too many big moments that made them all look insignificant in the end. They just tried to make every moment overdramatic and took themselves way too seriously. In the end, they were the only ones who did. Season 5 was a joke. Season 4 was bad enough to delay me watching S5 for a year, and my advice to you if you've been hesitant to watch S5 is to wait longer... like forever. You're not missing anything.

    jumped the shark. just don't care about any of these characters anymore.

    Painful. Overacted, just shots of nice cars and mansions with a bunch of awful actors and cameos. Please someone blowup Jay Glazer's gym - go workout there if you wanna look like a stalky, bald chode.

    Dwayne Johnson is just cashing checks. Season 4 was bad, but this is unwatchable. It's like Dwayne didn't want to be bothered with the show and just blew threw it. At least it's being cancelled.
