Although I'm not very interested in basketball, I enjoyed this movie. The beginning was okay, but it became much more entertaining once Alan (Durant's Agent played by Brandon T. Jackson) figured out what happened. Jackson's performance was as funny as I expected it to be. There are also important messages for young people about friendship and 'fitting in' - I liked that.
Thunderstruck is a good family film.
Favorite Line: Coach, is that from Hoosiers?
To start out, the director. When my children have children, they'll talk about the great directors making some of the best cinema of the 21st century. Paul Thomas Anderson, David Fincher, Terrance Malick and now John Whitesell. After previously directing the brilliant Big Momma's House trilogy, which are on par with the Star Trek Trilogy (Wrath of Khan, Search for Spock, The Voyage Home), the Lord of the Rings films, the Star Wars films and the Dollars films. Along with Malibu's Most Wanted, proving that Jamie Kennedy deserves an Oscar, and Deck the Halls with the comedy duo of Matthew Broderick and Danny Devito, in the shadow of Abbot and Costello. This is a man who has a vision to change the way we think but Thunderstruck completely wipes the floor with his other films. "Wipes the floor", get it?
I'm no sports fan but Kevin Durant needs to put down the basketball, and pick up an Oscar. He completely sells his role and you see him not as an actor, but as a man. On top of that, newcomer Taylor Gray, the Marlon Brando of the 21st century. You feel his struggles, see his anguish, jump for joy when he succeeds, mixes the bag of emotions that you won't be able to help yourself from. I found myself in tears walking out of the cinema, from his groundbreaking performance that not even the great Daniel Day Lewis can poke at.Read more ›
The kid is usually picked on but because of his new basketball talent he becomes popular and shows up his bully before he becomes a jerk himself.
The basketball in it is pretty fake as the kid dunking looks like he's flying rather than jumping and the same play is shown a few times but from slightly different angles and supposed to be different plays. Mixed in are some Kevin Durant highlights/lowlights from actual games.
Durant plays himself and it is a good thing they gave him an energetic manager to pair next to him as otherwise his scenes are fairly boring. A Durant fan might like seeing him but he's not in it that much besides shooting poorly in a gym on a few occasions and trying to get his talent back from the kid
The highlight of the film is the charming Tristin Mays as Isabel. She plays the female lead of the movie and the love interest to Brian. She liked him for him and before his basketball transformation and calls him out for turning into a conceited jerk later on in the movie who's more focused on living the good life than staying true to his friends
In the end though the message is that teamwork and effort can trump overall talent and Brian somehow does more with a lack of talent than Kevin Durant ever did as he switched talents with Brian and is doing terrible in the NBA while Brian enjoys all of his success and no amount of practice has improved Durant's game.Read more ›
It has life lessons that can be taken away from it and applied to everyday living.
Not only does Kevin Durant play basketball he also as a pretty good acting demeanor.
It has good clean comedy and or course kids being kids.
A good all around popcorn flick to watch with your young ones. Not many films like that these days.
If your looking for a CGI, Blow stuff up movie. This isn't for you.
