Horrible Acting in not a very good story movie.
as inspiring as the story is, I felt the movie lacked creating that message, and focused too much on Richard's character and his struggles. maybe that was the goal, but I was hoping to see and learn more about the sisters that I have enjoyed watching them dominate the sport. If you are a tennis fan and especially Williams sister fan, this is a must watch, but others may find this movie boring and not as inspiring as it has been marketed. casting and Will Smith portrayal is great, but again I was expecting anything less. the kids are really great.
Will Smith nails it again. I great tribute to Richard and his outstanding daughters. Nice to see a real film, about real people.
The story was shocking and profound at the same time- seriously well done. Will was top of the line. I'm definitely going to read up on the family. Ashamed as a caucasian that this man and family went through what they did at the hands of whites ( and blacks) Now I see why it was called King Richard.
I was initially disappointed as the movie began -- I went into this thinking it was going to be a bio-pic about legendary Vancouver Canucks 'tender "King Richard" Brodeur. This tennis story ultimately proved just as enthralling, though.
