I'd been meaning to watch this for a long time and it didn't let me down. Ray Allen doesn't do a perfect job as an actor, but at the same time for a basketballer, it is more than admirable. Denzel does his thing and is great in this along with other cast members. The running time has been criticised but a part from a few scenes being too long like the ones involving Milla Jovovich I didn't feel it dragged on too much. The script does a great job of mixing the drama of life with the basketball as well. To cap it off, Public Enemy did an amazing job with the title track.
