Spike Lee's most potentially commercial film since Malcolm X failed to ignite at the box office. This was surprising as the film featured one of Lee's obsessions (basketball), the best Lee performance from his favourite actor (Denzel Washington), a beautiful score (courtesy of Aaron Copeland) and an uplifting, sensitive script. Add a soundtrack written specially by Public Enemy and you have Spike Lee's best film since Do the Right Thing, which is no mean feat.

The depth of 'political comment' is typical Washington and done so very well, that makes all think beyond the Entertainment value

A great movie about a father and son relationship. If you like the music of Aaron Copland you'll love this as the film is saturated with it, songs by Public Enemy. Top rate performance from Denzel - what else?! Great Basketball and a few minor roles of some note.

(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.

ok . its bad and unlucky to live in the hood . its bad to have a gift , as all the grafters are out to exploit you . ok this is stereotypical , it just about holds your attention , is politically excessive , the Milla Jovovich character , belongs in another moves and downgrades it another star . The two leads are very good , but the rest of the film is blaxploitation . Couldnt wait for it to finish , couldnt care about outcome .

Now Im not a massive Spike Lee fan, I found 25th Hour to be one of the worst movies Ive ever seen. However, He Got Game is a rich film with an amazing performance from Denzel Washingtona s usual as incarcerated Jake Shuttlesworth. The use of music at times can be oddly placed and some of the scenes seem slightly drawn out but the film is irresistable at times and the cinematography is spot on 95% of the time. A great film with some brilliant moments.

Not being the greatest Denzel fan I was a little aprehensive at watching this for the first time. But to my suprise this was a well made, well acted story; about a young man's journey; caught between his father and the sport that he loves. Couple this well produced film with a sound track made up of the phatest Public Enemy tunes, you can't go wrong. The only question I have is why has it taken three years for this film to make it to the video sales market? If you have a few quid burning a whole in your pocket, and you want to buy a movie that you can watch over and over again, then this is the one for you. Enjoy!

Good movie.....but omg, what was going on with the soundtrack? The music was so bizarre and in the end made us chuckle everytime it began, as it was soooo wrong. I do not think this was supposed to be a comedy. Could not sit through this movie more than once and not as good as expected. Did nothing to make you excited about basketball.
