Hustle (2022) | Reviews

Hustle proves Adam Sandler is the perfect man to convincingly bridge the gap between a Hollywood movie and the real NBA, with gorgeously captured b-ball scenes and a taut, funny script.

Its compelling character drive and exhilarating technical craftsmanship more than make up for its narrative familiarity...

This is a glossy piece of Netflix content, but it relies very heavily on NBA fan buy-in for the drama fully to work...

Sandler plays Stanley with an inner sadness, a blend of weariness and resilience, and a stubborn faith in the game that leaves you moved, stoked, and utterly convinced.

There aren’t really any characters, it’s kind of remarkable... it simply populates the screen with people, some of whom occasionally say things.

That’s exactly why Hustle works so well. It’s a 117-minute blanket of comfort that delivers precisely what you want to see from an underdog sports story, and never tries too hard to be anything else.

The soft downside of Hustle is that it's unnervingly conventional... but in the end it's still an effective, traditional underdog movie that hits all the right notes.
