Review of Stephen Curry: The Underrated Movie (2023).

In high school, Curry was considered too skinny and short for him—”150 pounds soaking wet” and about 6″ 2″. But Curry, with the wisdom of his pro-ball father, Dell Curry, developed a secret weapon, a sharp jump shot that armed the defensive line and could easily lift six points of his team, leading his team to a second from three, three points first. sounds like the conclusion, Curry changed the way basketball teams use the defensive line for shooting. That’s a compelling point, but this film doesn’t have the same analytical interest in the game or getting to know Curry in depth. It’s just about what keeps it going.

“Stephen Curry: Underrated” spends a surprising amount of time on the team that overlooked him and, in turn, covered his incredible ball control with great confidence — his college team, the Davidson College Wildcats under coach Bob McKillop. This relatively small basketball program believed in Curry’s ability over his size and created the magic of March March, as we see in this film profile of his college career. This piece features interviews from Curry’s still-troubled teammates and McKillop, and combined with grainy old footage of Curry (including his college sketch comedy days!) might be the film’s most enjoyable passages.

All the while, Nicks will address the modern Curry and the latest ways he can be underrated. He’s working on a thesis we barely learn about, finishing up his college degree from his years at Davidson, and dealing with another one of his infamous leg injuries. But this highlights more of the document’s biggest problems, that its biggest benefit – real footage – has more to do with casual access than insight. It makes for some light modern drama and hints at a project that had little purpose beyond collecting images of Curry for a few months without going too deep or asking any questions. In the process, the humanized elements from past clips are lazily protected by the fact that Curry is now a star. Even a surprisingly famous moment in which he’s filming a Subway commercial, transported via green screen to Italy, is weak on curiosity, despite the humor in its unexpected inclusion. “Stephen Curry: Underrated” doesn’t understand what it means to be a superstar like Curry so much as gloss over his constructs.
