    He Got Game totally is one of Spike Lee's Joints best. Ray Allen is a rarity, an athlete that can act. Denzel Washington delivers as always.It may not have been a box office success but Spike Lee should be proud of this amazing film

    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.
  2. He Got Game seems to cheer for integrity, honesty and hard work while playing up its own cheap thrills.

    Uneven, ludicrous, but--oh man!--fun to watch.
