Reviews Say LeBron’s ‘Space Jam’ Movie Sucks

Videos by OutKick

Space Jam: A New Legacy starring LeBron James sucks, according to nearly every film critic. Get ready, these are good.

“LeBron James’ film is an abomination,” the New York Post says. “During the endless final sequence of Space Jam: A New Legacy, Porky Pig calls himself ‘the Notorious P.I.G.’ and begins to rap. ‘This pig is lit,’ the Looney Tune says. ‘I’m super legit.'”

“Porky should’ve added: ‘And my movie is s–t.'”

Fair enough.

CNBC, not as liberal as the rest of NBC’s properties but still bad, calls Space Jam 2 a “bloated mess.”

Word is LeBron’s new film was scored “Rotten” on Rotten Tomatoes, holding just a 37% score. For context, that’s awful.

Space Jam supporters and LeBron stans bragged about the film’s CGI. According to the L.A. Times, though, the movie’s CGI mirrors a garbage tornado. 

And that’s from the L.A. Times, an outlet that has protected LeBron at all costs. So, how terrible is this film?

Vulture claims the movie really is that bad. The Wrap, which is usually friendly to LeBron, slammed the film’s attempt at humor.

“LeBron James Nets Nothing in Overstuffed Sequel. A New Legacy barely has jokes for the Looney Tunes, let alone the entire Warner Bros. cast of characters, who spend the film mostly just standing around,” The Wrap writes.

Cinema Blend gave Space Jam 1.5 stars. That’s out of 5. “LeBron James looks like he has no interest in Space Jam: A New Legacy, so why should we?” the outlet asks.

One could say LeBron’s performance is an airball. But anyone who uses that exact wording must properly credit NME, which used the word first.

Keep in mind that most film critics share the same worldview as LeBron James. Meaning, they too, don’t like America. Critics’ biases undoubtedly play a role in their grading scales. To critics, the quality of a film matters less than a film’s performers, messages, and political stances. Thus, when Metacritic scores Space Jam: A New Legacy a 37, it means the film is about a 17.

Conclusion: this movie really sucks.

For those keeping a list — and I’m certainly not — LeBron has proven to be horrible at the following:

  • Making TV shows
  • Using Twitter
  • Talking about history
  • Reacting to political issues
  • Discussing police
  • Reading books
  • Understanding actual crimes
  • Getting along with teammates and coaches
  • Hiding his hypocrisy
  • Starring in films

He’s a good basketball player, though.

Don’t watch Space Jam: A New Legacy.

  1. Excellent dissection of the reality here — even those prone to smooch LeBron’s behind for political and SJW reasons dislike the movie — and solid list of his many failings. He truly is an emperor with no clothes.

  2. Actually……

    LeBron James has a #1 movie to add to his resume now. The basketball star teams up with Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes in “Space Jam: A New Legacy.” According to Variety, the film is projected to walk away with a $32 million theater debut. That would place the film above “Black Widow,” the MCU film that took first place last weekend when it opened.

  3. His issue most all his life, after watching MJ, is he is one person trying to be someone else. You’re not like MJ, you will never be MJ and attempting to be MJ you have lost yourself along the way. He does have longevity- got to give him that – but he doesnt have the “I’m gonna beat you at all costs, and when you’re down, my foot goes on your neck” that the other guy had….can’t fake that!
