SPACE JAM: A NEW LEGACY – A Review by Hollywood Hernandez

Director Malcolm D. Lee, who directed Girl’s Trip, Night School, and The Best Man, tries his hand at his first animated feature and creates a movie that has all of the elements of the previously mentioned┬áfilms, but is set in an animated world. He gets a top-notch performance from Lebron James, the reigning King of Basketball, and Don Cheadle, the Academy Award-nominated actor, plays a computer algorithm named Al G. Rhythm. Cheadle plays a bad guy who kidnaps Lebron’s son and makes King James team up with all of the Looney Tunes characters to play a game against a fantasy team whose powers were created in the computer.

Bugs and crew are a scream! They bring plenty of that Looney Tunes magic to the movie with plenty of fun little puns that will keep you laughing. I don’t want to give away any spoilers but there’s a lot of contemporary culture references that will keep you giggling.┬á

Besides Cheadle, young Cedric Joe, as Lebron’s son Dom, has the biggest part in the movie. He’s a young man who prefers designing video games over basketball., which causes him and his father to constantly┬ábe at odds. The riff between father and son makes him decide to play against his dad in a video game he designs with Al G. Rhythm.┬á

With the help of the Looney Tunes, Lebron discovers that his son needs a father who supports his passion, rather than a basketball coach. The two mend fences and in the end, Dom decides to join his father in an attempt to come back and defeat The Goon Squad.

Space Jam: A New Legacy is a great family film. It’s funny, heartwarming, and mostly it’s a movie about a family’s love for each other. It is a winning combination. It’s rated PG for cartoon violence and a martini drinking granny. On my “Hollywood Popcorn Scale” I rate the movie a LARGE.┬á
