Thunderstruck DVD & Blu-ray Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Nov 10, 2012
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Now available as a DVD/Blu-ray/Ultraviolet Combo Pack, Thunderstruck stars 3-time NBA All-Star Kevin Durant in a story about a young basketball player that gets a shot at his dream! Find out more in the Kidzworld Review!

 

Thunderstruck

The main character of Thunderstruck, Brian (Taylor Gray) is flat out terrible at basketball and gets teased by just about everyone, but when he goes to a Thunders game and gets a chance to shoot a half court shot his luck instantly changes. Kevin Durant signs his basketball and in a twist accidentally imbues Brian with his talent. Brian becomes the star player of his team, but things like homework and friends start to slide in the glow of his success. Meanwhile Kevin Durant can no longer make a shot to save his life, and with the NBA playoffs apporaching that could mean big trouble for his team. It's up to Brian to figure out how to put things right.

Thunderstruck has a pretty wacky premise, so unless you're a die-hard Kevin Durant fan it might be hard to get into the story. It's choc-a-bloc full of cameos, including one by Kevin Durant's mom and another by late night talk show host Conan O'Brien, but at 1.5 hours the movie is a little long considering the plot and sort of hard to follow.

Bonus Features

Thunderstruck comes with a few fun extras if you're a basketball nut:

  • KD's Clinic: Kevin Durant and Taylor Gray go behind the scenes to show viewers how they pulled off the trickier elements of the basketball scenes (including the "talent exchange".)
  • Coach Z: Jim Belushi gives us a comedic interview we won't forget as the head coach for the Eagles' basketball team.
  • From Backboards to Clapboards: Kevin Durant discusses how he got involved in the film.
  • Ultraviolet: instantly stream and download films to compatible devices.
