a beautiful, well shot, and acted cinematic masterpiece.
I think this is one of my favourite films. The acting is superb, slam-dunk champion Staples shines in his role as Michael Diggs, and Michael Irvin is also pretty good as his former agent. As well as the smart acting there is a powerful script and storyline, i wont say the story because its probably already been said in other reviews, but the characters are believable and original.
The music is another good point for this film, the songs done by the rappers really add to the feel of the film and the title song "Slam" is a brilliant track.
My favourite aspect of this film is the director''s use of the camera, his slow pans around and smooth camera movements with no cuts are really good, this film contains some of the best shots i've seen and are really inspiring.Especially the scene when Chris is in the park hugging his mother's grave.
My main criticism of this film is the ending, the film was believable and real all the way through but the ending was a big letdown, my other criticism is that it is a bit too long and can lose the audiences attention by being a bit boring.
But overall this is a great film by one of Hollywood's best faith-based directors, and this film should have got more praise than it got, especially Chris Staple's performance.
