Movie Review by Terrence
May 14th, 2007

Tupac in a basketball movie

In the movie 'Above the Rim' we get one of Tupac Shakur's most menancing performances as a drug dealer named Birde who plays an active part in the local basketball of his neighborhood.

Whether it's betting on games or recruiting players to play on his inter-league team, he his one manipulative S.O.B.

Enter Kyle-Lee played by Duane Martin a local basketball up and comer who falls under the influence of Birdie and also Birdie's older brother played by Leon (maybe who remember him as the black Jesus in the Madonna video Like A Prayer) who is dating his mom.

The film is just average but some of the basketball scenes and Tupac are a treat.

It's no Hoosiers though.
