I got the chance to watch the premiere of this film in Megamall, thanks to fellow blogger Azrael Coladilla. Good film. Documentary format. I like the way they separated the foregrounds from the backgrounds from old pictures. More of a teenage melodrama than a sports movie, so even those without interest in basketball can njo the movie.
“More Than A Game” follows NBA phenom LeBron James and his four starting teammates (Dru Joyce, Romeo Travis, Sian Cotton and Willie McGee) back when they were part of the up-and-coming St. Vincent-St. Mary High School varsity basketball team — and how each overcame his own adversaries in order to win ball games and remain on top.
A feel-good story about friendship, loyalty and what it takes to become a true champion, More Than A Game also gives us a closer-than-ever look inside the historic rise of future NBA legend LeBron James.***
