    The resulting movie (2005) covers seven years and touches on some of the same social issues that gave "Hoop Dreams" its epic sweep, yet Serrill fails to treat any of them adequately, and the narrative loses its shape as events unfold.

    This really only focuses on two people. One (the star player) is interesting. The other (the coach) is not. Film-makers couldn't be bothered to let us know anyone else. Doesn't work as a Cinderella story either, as the team had been a powerhouse for years, so movie is just about it taking the final step. Not really a bad movie, just not all that good. Full Review »
