  • Critic Reviews of "He Got Game"

    March 25, 2008

    Lacking the moral indignation and militant politics of Lee's former work, this vibrantly colorful father-son melodrama is soft at the center, but it's one of the most accessible films Lee has made and Denzel Washington is terrific.

    New York Observer
    April 27, 2007

    At the end of Mr. Lee's movie, all you feel is the distraction of Mr. Lee's stylistic exhibitionism, without which, I concede, he might not be regarded as a genius in some quarters.

    March 25, 2007

    [Lee] gets a charming performance from Allen, who, in his acting debut, occupies his pedestal with grace and diffidence.

    Chicago Reader
    March 25, 2007

    As usual, Lee tries many kinds of stylistic effects and uses wall-to-wall music (by Aaron Copland and Public Enemy); what's different this time is how personally driven the story feels.

    Time Out
    February 09, 2006

    Most scenes play too long, with a surplus of ideas, textures, tones and characters, and after 134 minutes it's clear Lee's problem with closure hasn't gone away.

    San Francisco Chronicle
    June 18, 2002

    Washington's Jake Shuttlesworth looks tough and hard, an odd but refreshing turn for an actor long associated with handsomely heroic roles.
    January 07, 2009

    A long, boring, meandering, dog of a movie.

    March 25, 2008

    Lee's attack on how big business is not only ruining the game he loves but also playing with people's lives is direct and brave, while his passion, insight and intelligence are evident and admirable.

    TV Guide
    March 25, 2007

    Though too long by a good half hour, Lee's latest film packs a genuine emotional punch.

    Reeling Reviews
    April 09, 2005

    Lee paints intimate characters who are about more than the game. Themes of integrity, honesty, loyalty and familial love are woven through the film resulting in a complex, thought-provoking human drama.

    Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

    Shrewdly exposes the underbelly of college recruiting and the pressures exerted on talented high school basketball stars.
    June 07, 2004

    Flawed but powerful.
