Great Drama for the passionate basketball lover. 30 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Eric "Hank" Gathers was a very dedicated basketball player from day one. He thrilled the nation in the late 80's when he took little Loyola Maramount University to the top, while leading all Division-1 athletes in scoring and rebounding his Junior Year. It was in his Senior year that the energetic Gathers suffered a minor heart attack, forcing him to sit out an unwanted period of time. Against doctors orders, he came back too early only to suffer a fatal heart attack near the end of that same season. The movie takes you through Hank's breif life from the age of eleven all the way up to his sudden death. This drama shows you how he and his best friend Bo Kimble always dreamed to make it to the NBA. Bo had it easy, always being the star; while Hank was the underdog, and had to go through many obstacles to get to the top. The year after Hank's tragic death Bo was drafted where he and Hank had always talked about being the lottery. This is a true story.

Sad story! 1 Jan 2013
By Kenneth C. Wright - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The movie itself could use some better acting, but the story is still there. Sad memory for those of us who remember when Hank Gathers actually passed away. Would have been nice to see what he might have done at the next level.

Good made for TV movie 2 April 2008
By Derrick Dunn - Published on
Format: DVD
Final Shot: The Hank Gathers Story is great made for TV movie about star that stopped shining too soon. I didn't know a lot about Hank Gathers since hey day was when I was a child. But from seeing the movie I learned a few things. Victor Love gives a great performance in the lead role and if the movie is ever on TV it's worth checking out.
Captivating, Inspiring Family Film 19 May 2014
By Lady Laraine - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"Final Shot" is an inspiring, but heart-wrenching film based on the true life of the famed basketball player, Hank Gathers, whose life was, tragically shortened by unexpected health issues. We were able to watch this well-done film with our two young daughters and enjoy (and learn from) its inspiring, but sad message. Hank Gathers was a young, gifted athlete who, through hard work, perserverence and support, was able to achieve great success at a very young age. He overcame great obstacles, having made his way successfully out of a ghetto-surrounded, impoverished beginning, having been raised by an honest, hard-working single mother--played by actress Nell Carter--who only strove for the highest ideals for her beloved son. George Kennedy plays a dedicated priest and close friend and mentor of the family, who also lends his support to Hank's phenomenal success.
There were so many talented actors in this film. We wondered at the begining of the film, when the younger Hank Gathers and his fellow basketball players were being shown, what was the name of the handsome young actor who played No. 50 and names of any of his other films?
