This is a very solid, well made film around. Soderbergh shapes a nice film around the/a? NBA lock-out with a credible cast. It moves at a good pace and is a different kind of sports drama, revolving around mostly dialogue between a do-right sports agent, Andre Holland as Ray, and the people around him. It's affable how he deals and connects with them to move the plays of getting the lock-out resolved moving forward. The film doesn't manage to do any transcending, but just succeeds in being an enjoyable experience.

B+
