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?
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.
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 ›
It's basically a movie about a 15 year old boy who accidentally steals kevin durrants talent and now becomes the star of his high school.
Many great lessons on what is important , like friendships and being humble.
A great watch for the whole family.
There were also a few touchy scenes in Blindside too, but it is still a great movie for kids to see! I recommend it!

16-year-old Brian Newall's reach very much exceeds his grasp, but maybe poet Robert Browning shouldn't have been so smug with that line. Brian's one big aspiration has brought him nothing but grief. His idol is Kevin Durant, that lanky superstar forward on the Oklahoma City Thunder. And so there's Brian (Taylor Gray) on the driveway, emulating No. 35's silky smooth moves, and the poor klutz just ends up hurting himself always. Plenty of Brian's basketball, um, exploits have been cruelly documented on camera and, hence, on YouTube. Kid is the laughingstock of Eastview High, OKC. He's on the school's basketball squad, but only as the team manager (re: towel boy).
Thunderstruck is no classic, but, boy, is it watchable. It's family-friendly fare (I do note the words "crap" and "piss off" are discharged once each). Kevin Durant, a very humble cat, had to be talked into going Hollywood. And while he won't be taking food off other actors' tables with his emoting skills, he generates a very likeable presence. I know these are differently toned movies, but I find him more naturally sympathetic than Shaq in Blue Chips or Ray Allen in He Got Game or Michael Jordan in Space Jam.
What's taken from real life is how much of a good dude Durant is.Read more ›
