The New Space Jam Movie Review – Does it Live Up To The First?

Space Jam is such an iconic movie, so trying to make a new version of the movie was an uphill battle to begin with, so I had to review the movie and compare it to the original. *Please Note* – This post contains spoilers, so if you don’t want to be spoiled, you can come back and read this after and see if you agree with me.

The Opening

LeBron James is an egotistical maniac, and I don’t think anyone can really deny that. So I don’t know why I was surprised that the opening ten minutes of the movie consisted of his career highlights. From his high school basketball highlights to his charitable contributions, it was all featured in the opening scene to remind the world just how great of a person he is.

The other thing that stood out to me in the open of the movie were the actors that were meant to be James’ sons in the movie. The kids were seemingly modeled after his kids at home, so why not use them in the movie? I know Bronny knows the video game world, so why not include him as an actor?

The Rest

The Looney Tunes are great, so it’s hard to hate on the classic character of my youth. I actually liked how they “modernized” the cartoons and brought them into 2021.

Probably the most annoying part of the entire movie was how in-your-face Nike was at all times. I mean, when LeBron fell into the cartoon world, he left the Nike swoosh in the ground. It was all a bit too much and too obnoxious. The jerseys the Tune Squad wore were super fresh, though.

There were a few jokes made at Lebron’s expense, but overall it seemed like he made the movie so people can admire the work he’s done and make him seem like some great human being.
