Space Jam: A New Legacy

Space Jam: A New Legacy

Saying anything about the second Space Jam movie almost feels like a waste of breath. Space Jam: A New Legacy knows its bereft of artistic merit; it's a nearly two-hour advertisement they're making you pay for. The advertising side of things is plainly obvious, but the actual film side of things greatly suffers as well.

Even if there's something resembling a positive message buried beneath the heaps of corporate advertising, it seriously doesn't matter; Space Jam: A New Legacy falls completely flat on its face on nearly all fronts. From horrid visuals, obnoxious music, to a belligerent pace similar to The Rise of Skywalker, A New Legacy is pure hell in film form. The thing is, I seriously didn't need to tell you that. A New Legacy is quite literally a new Space Jam movie. If you've actually watched the first film in recent memory - not through your rose-tinted glasses from when you were 12 years old - you'll see the original Space Jam sucked shit. Space Jam: A New Legacy sucks shit, too, for every reason the first one did, plus more. This isn't rocket science.

A description such as that clearly merits a lower score than one whole star (it doesn't even deserve a rating to be completely honest), but I'll give it some credit for a few chuckle-worthy Looney Toons gags. I suppose I can additionally complement the blistering editing of the film, in a way. The rapid pace makes a horrible viewing experience, but it helped make the movie feel nowhere near as long as it actually was.

Lastly, I'll add that I played the tie-in game on Xbox before seeing the movie. I didn't really review it, per se, but I did scribble some thoughts about it which you can totally read here --> SHAMELESS PLUG
