A kid named Reggie Reynolds is a high school student who is good in the classroom but not so good on the basketball court. But one day he meets a junk dealer who gives him a pair of old gym shoes that once were worn by an all-star in the Negro Basketball leagues in the 1930's. Reggie puts the red sneakers on and he is immediately playing like a superstar on the basketball court. He gets the attention of a major shoe company executive who wants Reggie to switch from the old red sneakers that he is wearing to his company's brand. But Reggie knows if he's not wearing those magical old red sneakers he is back on the sideline. Written by mts77

Turned out to be better than it seemed at first
4 January 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This was on TV when there was nothing else, so I gave it a chance. It's one of those moral-containing family films, where a special lesson is learned by the end. The message is fairly good. The plot isn't bad, it's mostly wrapped up. This can be pretty predictable, and unless you've never seen one of these before, it's not likely to particularly surprise you. The "comedy" consists of gags and jokes that just aren't really funny, and some lack proper set-up. They are usually childish, but never crude or gross. The acting isn't terribly impressive. Editing and cinematography are fine, except for a sequence that looks like they ran out of money and shot it with a hand-held camera, and a use of slow-motion near the conclusion that I'm not sure I'd call the most fortunate or the one that turned out the best in the history of motion pictures. This has a running time of around an hour and a half. The music was the high point for me, at least partially consisting of rap, and the lyrics are "clean"(and extremely obviously written for exactly where they were used, very little room for interpretation). In fact, there's nothing in this that renders it impossible to watch for any age, so anyone can sit down with it, which is clearly what they went for. It's got a little basketball action, nicely captured and exciting, if you're into it. If you can't stand the sport, this is not for you, nor was it intended to be. I recommend this to any person or group who finds this appealing. There are stronger efforts out there, however. 5/10
