LeBron James Soars in Hilarious Looney Tunes Sequel
LeBron James flies high in a clever sequel that will delight generations of Looney Tunes fans. Space Jam: a new legacy has the basketball superstar battling an artificial intelligence wronged by her son’s affection. The father and son who come to an agreement in the story is certainly foolish; But the hilarious cartoons, supporting characters, and witty direction add to family-friendly entertainment. Warner Bros. goes overboard with unbridled self-promotion. The film is essentially a two-hour commercial for the studio and its intellectual property.
Space Jam: a new legacy blinks back to LeBron James Soars like the poor child (Alex Huerta) of a single mother in distress. He gets a used Nintendo Gameboy from a friend. The distraction causes you to lose focus and the team suffers as a result. His coach scolds him. Who calls him an incredible talent, but who will never lift his family out of poverty if he does not commit every ounce of himself to be great.
In Los Angeles today, LeBron’s youngest son, Dom (Cedric Joe), is constantly pressured by his father. He wants to be a video game programmer, but LeBron doesn’t think he’s living up to his potential. Lebron, Dom, and a family friend, Malik (Khris Davis), travel to the Warner Bros. lot to meet with studio executives (Sarah Silverman, Steven Yueng). Your “server-verse” algorithm, drum roll please … Al G Rhythm (Don Cheadle) has created “Warner 3000”, an all-encompassing social media and marketing strategy using Lebron’s likeness. When LeBron scoffs at the idea, the evil AI digitally abducts him and his son. LeBron is forced to play a basketball game against a new “Goon Squad” to rescue Dom and escape the “server verse”.
Space Jam: a new legacy it takes a little time to get going. The first fifteen minutes are somewhat slow to establish exposure. Then the movie takes off like a comedy rocket. LeBron’s adventures in the “server verse” are pretty funny. LeBron and Bugs Bunny (Jeff Bergman) explore other worlds of Warner Bros. to recruit the loose gang of Looney Tunes. His antics in Matrix, Metropolis and Harry Potter made the audience in my theater roll with laughter. These scenes are cleverly done with the quirky reactions of the various cartoons. Grandma nearly stole the show with several hilarious takedown moments. LeBron James Soars
Director Malcolm D. Lee (The best man, Girls trip) gives the supporting cast ample screen time. They add comedic value and help LeBron carry the acting weight of the film. Don Cheadle is a fantastic villain with a lot of personality. He gets several evil spikes against LeBron, his fame, and his place in NBA history. Other basketball greats (Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Diana Taurasi) also join in to ruthlessly poke fun at LeBron. LeBron meets his critics and lets the movie take shots. This is a wonderful surprise. An egomaniac like Michael Jordan would never have allowed such jokes in the first Space jam movie.
Space Jam: a new legacy bring back the classic Looney tunes characters to glory. It was great to see Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Tweety, Sylvester, Marvin the Martian, and all my childhood favorites. They’re just as fun and endearing with a 21st century CGI update. Space Jam: a new legacy It is produced by Warner Animation Group, Proximity Media, and Springhill Company. Warner Bros. will release it on July 16 theatrically and will simulcast on HBO Max.
