This review is from: He Got Game [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
(yahoo review) :
Denzel Washington does some of his best work as a prison inmate trying to earn himself an early release by talking his estranged son into playing basketball at the governor of New York's alma mater.
My review :
I gave this film 5 stars for its brilliant acting and gritty, real atmosphere. It is about a young basketball player (played by nba star ray allen) whos father is sent to prison for accidentally killing his mother, his father (denzel washington) is then told by his warden that he can get him out of prison if can pursuede his son to play for the wardens favorite college basketball team. For anyone has a faint interest in basketball or is a fan of this genre, i would advise seeing this film. It is clever, touching and a engaging watch.
