Worth it!

Loved this movie! Great acting, amazing story, wonderful depiction of the merits of family, hard work, dedication and strong dads with big dreams. A bit of violence might be unsettling for younger viewers.

Was hoping for more
Verified purchase
Let me explain, I'll literally watch ANYTHING Will Smith is in and he did a great job as always, but I was hoping for a little more to the story. The focus was on Venus, and very little about Serena which disappointed me. And the story ends when Venus goes pro, which again I was hoping for more. What was there, though, was well done by everyone. The girls did a great job in their roles and all the supporting actors were awesome. Will Smith... sigh... every role he plays is with amazing style. Watch the movie, it's a great story, just not as full/complete as I was hoping for.

A spectacular and moving performance
Verified purchase
This is Will Smith's best performance as an extraordinary father with all of his flaws intact. More than the typical American success story about underdog athletes who win through resilience, practice, and fortitude, the film demonstrates how Venus, who was raised to believe in herself, learns that failure is her most important lesson because she will always have the love of her family, even if she falls flat on her face on the court during her most important game. Her parents and her sisters cheer her on and allow her to fail with grace because getting back up on your feet and holding your head up high, especially when you lose, is more important than winning. Richard Williams knew his daughters were capable of greatness when no one else believed in them and never gave up on them, even though he was continually rejected, and beaten to a bloody pulp his whole life and while he was trying to protect all of his children. For me, this story is about visionary parenting as much as it is about the father and first coach of two supernova Black women athletes.

Wonderful Movie
Verified purchase
This movie is NOT about Will Smith. I'm sure he's the reason many people rented it, but this is a story about Venice and Serena Williams ' dad. He was determined to help them become tennis stars. Similar to Joe Jackson of the Jackson 5. I loved how the girls started from the bottom and made their way to the top without formal training at a age where tennis players usually learn. They started late, but finished first many times. I love their mother's role in helping support their dad too as well as their children. It's a good family movie for all to watch and enjoy.

This Tribute to King Richard Williams proves DNA greatness! Mr. Williams gave his daughters the space to excel, to thrive! The encouragement of a very loving and supportive family. They imagined what it would be like , they dreamed what it would be like... and it MANIFESTED AS SUCH! JESSE

Excellent Movie!

We enjoyed watching this movie, very inspirational. I am a tennis enthusiast myself so I enjoyed it alot but the movie is enjoyable even if you are not a tennis enthusiast. King Richard is teaching us how to raise hard working , goal oriented and committed children no matter the circumstances of life.
