Space Jam: A New Legacy | Review


There’s a scene some forty minutes into Space Jam: A New Legacy that sees Bugs Bunny outline the film. With a twitch of those iconic ears, the octogenarian toon then looks to camera and asides that it all sounds ‘awfully familiar’. He’s not wrong. Space Jam 2 is less new legacy than fusty rehash. Worse still, the gag doesn’t even land. It’s a wink and a nudge entirely lacking in heart.

Every other sentence in Tom O’Connor and Murphys Brandon and Philip’s script is loaded with a hefty handful of f**ks. There’s cartoon violence, gratuitous bloodshed and stereotypes to make a seventies sitcom star blush. That said, the cast give it some welly and the budget goes as far as a cool fifty million can. Make of this what you will but it’s really not that bad.
