An Early Look At ‘Pistol Pete’
This is about as clean a story as you could find: a nice story about the famous basketball player “Pistol” Pete Maravich in his earlier days. An incredible talent, Maravich went on to star at LSU and then in the professional NBA.
This particular story centers around young Maravich as an eighth-grader playing basketball for his high school team. The first half of the film was fascinating as actor Adam Guier was very credible exhibiting Maravich’s tremendous ball-handling skills for a kid his age. There also is some nice photography in here.
The second half of the movie became a little too Hollywood-cliché ridden. I wish they had gone into Pete’s college and pro career and ended with his conversion to Christianity before his untimely death. It could have been a very powerful movie instead of just a nice after-school-type TV film. (Just reading another review here, I am glad to learn some of that material is included in the DVD. My only look at this was on tape about a dozen years ago.)
A very bad prosecution of making a basketball movie in this way
With constant murmurings by the person who played the “Pistol” P. Maravich was such a stupid way to start a movie, nor a way to use big words like “You can be whatever you want to be”, the formula of the usual “American Dream”. So many big words being used like crazy in this movie. It should be a quite inspiring sports movie, but terribly scripted, badly directed and horrible acting. But other than the often blah blah blah to himself like usually being used in the Korean movies, the horrible soundtrack further ruined this already bad enough movie, making it several notches lower than some of the great basketball movies. Barely watchable becausse it’s really not good enough.
