This is a funny and inspirational film that is definitely enjoyable to watch. Brian Newall (Taylor Gray) is horrible at basketball. He loves the game, but he just cannot play. Brian is a very big fan of NBA Superstar Kevin Durant. While at a basketball game, Brian gets a chance to meet the superstar and supposedly steals Kevin's talent. Kevin Durant, playing himself, is suddenly horrible at basketball while Brian is the new superstar on his high school team. Kevin is worthless and is on the receiving end of all the bad publicity from fans and sports commentators. Kevin's agent, Alan Garrett, (Brandon T. Jackson) goes to great lengths to try and get Kevin his talent back. I really like this film because I just love basketball. It is my favorite sport and I really get in to the game. There are a lot of funny moments when Brian is playing with his team and he is showing how really klutzy he is. Coach Amross (James Belushi) and his Assistant Coach Dan (Robert Belushi) are too funny and will definitely keep you laughing. My favorite scene is when Alan is trying to get Kevin his talent back; he is doing all kinds of things. It's going from holding the basketball together with saying a message, rubbing carpet and then finally to a stun gun. This is really funny. I also like the scene with Kevin's Mom in a cheerleaders' outfit. One great message in this film is that talent isn't something you get; talent is something that you earn with hard work and dedication. I recommend this film for ages 7 to 18 and anyone who loves the game of basketball. If you are a fan of Kevin want, then you will not want to miss this one. I give Thunderstruck 4 out of 5 starts, because it's funny, has a good message and is great for the whole family to enjoy. Thunderstruck bounces into Theaters on August 24th so go and get your KD Jersey and check it out. Reviewed by Brianna Hope Beaton, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 12.
A fun and energetic family basketball movie starring Kevin Durant AS HIMSELF, a basketball star who switches talent with a klutzy 16 year old fan. When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team...while Kevin Durant suddenly can't make a shot to save his life. But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner involves working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero's season.
