An exhilarating, montage-driven 80s popcorn flick
1 January 2020 | by brendamay-38740See all my reviews

I do not understand how this film can have such a low rating, this is undoubtedly the best movie of any basketball movie so far. With a fantastic storyline, sensational dunk scenes, a very good cast, a good sound mix, great soundtrack and great music. Truly good, one of the best movies ever and one of the greatest classics of its era.

In a nutshell, I love it!

Watch th first 15 mins and then run it forward to the last 30 mins or so and you have a smile on your face. What more do you want?

Highly recommend.
