Awkward and often downright silly, He Got Game is nonetheless heartfelt, a moving portrayal of a man who finds his long-lost son through faith, hope and basketball. Full Review
David Edelstein
Uneven, ludicrous, but--oh man!--fun to watch. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Basketball, bold urban landscapes, larger-than-life characters and red-hot visual pyrotechnics are the strong points of Mr. Lee's biggest three-ring circus, not to mention the central presence of Denzel Washington. Full Review
Emanuel Levy
Lacking the moral indignation, outrage and militant politics that marked Lee's earlier work, this vibrantly colorful film is a tad too soft at the center, and arguably the director's most mainstream movie. Full Review
James Berardinelli
This is essentially a familiar story told with consummate skill. Full Review
