Hello everyone, welcome to the Matta critic. This is Matthew Hemenway. Have I got a review for you? In this episode of Matta critic, I will be reviewing and analyzing Chang can Dunk that is currently on Disney+. I will go over several topics in this review. I will explain how Chang grows in this film and how he must learn to trust his mother and his friends. He will show how tough he is and how hard he works. He will show he is not a quitter. I hope this episode will inspire to Read, Watch, and Learn. I will give you my rating at the end of this episode.
Please consider checking out my Facebook page where I have been posting links to Patreon and YouTube. I will also have been posting links to my blog that you want to check out which is www.mattacritic.com/blog. The blog will have the written portion of the review as well as the YouTube video being included there as well. Thank you.
As I would have told in my last 2 videos or blog posts, my laptop’s hard drive died and need your help to cover the costs of getting a new one. As I told you, if you help support me, it will make it easier for me to keep doing this. I will tell you at the end of the video or blog post how to do just that. Now on with the review.
As was mentioned in this video or blog post, Chang must learn to overcome his doubts and his fear of being accepted by others. Chang believes that he must do these things to get accepted by others and to have this popularity. What the movie shows is that he loves the game of basketball, and that love is shown in this.
Chang’s mother is a nurse, and she challenges her son to stick with something. Chang goes from one thing to another. He tells his mother that he needs a job. He claims he needs this job so that he can get into college or have some spending money. This is one thing that has not changed since I have been in high school. It has been 25 years since I graduated high school, but kids worry about having extra money, or working. If a kid asks me, "I would like to work, I will tell you what the rush is to work. What are you looking for?” You are only young once, there is no going back to being young. There is no fountain of youth, even those that have been looking for. Is there a chance it could happen? It all depends on science finding the answer, but that would be bad. Humans would abuse it and use it to attain more power.
Chang makes the bet with Matt that he can dunk. He wants to prove to himself and others that he can do this. In the movie, Chang meets a girl, and he has a crush on her. Her name will not be revealed here as for you to find out by watching the movie. I feel that it is important for the viewer to find out by watching the movie.
Chang meets D’Andre who works at Verizon. No, I am spoiling anything as this was shown in the trailer of this movie. D’Andre helps to train Chang to understand more about what it takes to dunk. What he tells him, you must improve your core and your technique. Why are those things important? It is because that is no different than in martial arts. Your technique helps to execute the move more effectively. He tells Chang to hold the ball high in the air. That makes sense so that you can get the ball in the air and in the basket. Chang needed to improve his core. That was going to be happening with the weight training. He also needed to run, and he pulled D’Andre’s car to help with the endurance and the strength that he needed. He also needed to scream after the Dunk. Why is that important? In martial arts, you yell and that comes from your core. Chang needed to have some swag. Swag is confidence. It is the belief that you can do it, even if it is hard or that person thinks he or she cannot do it.
Chang will grow in this movie. The movie will have Jay Williams as a guest star in the movie. Jay Williams will play himself. This Jay Williams is the one who played for Duke and won the national championship back in 2001. Jay Williams got drafted by the Chicago Bulls back in 2002 but he got hurt by riding a motorcycle. He currently works for ESPN. They had him doing what he would do for ESPN in real life.
Richard Jefferson is in the movie as well as Jay Williams. He is playing himself in this movie. Richard Jefferson played for Arizona and was a really good player like Jay Williams was. Richard Jefferson played on the team that ironically lost to Jay Williams and Duke back in 2001. I will leave a link in the description below to Wikipedia which will show his career. Thank you.
Chang will get caught up in wanting the attention of the accolades that he forgets the people who got him there in the first place. Chang will leave his friends hanging while he is at a party. Chang is getting his ego fed that he lets that he gets to his head. His friends are left hanging.
Chang will learn that winning a bet at all costs is not worth it and he will find out that winning a bet is not going to make him special. What makes a person special is that he or she works hard, and he or she finds a way to achieve it. They work hard and they learn that life can give you lemons, but you make lemonade. A person must work hard and be willing to sacrifice.
If you have seen the movie, does Chang Dunk? Please leave your answer in the comment section below.
As not to be revealed nothing more will be revealed here. It does bring the viewer to the climax of the story.
I will give you, my rating. I give Chang can Dunk, a 10 out 10. It was fun but does not make it a sure thing to the viewer that the question gets answered or not. What it shown is that Chang goes through character growth, and he must not act so defensively to his mother. Chang is of Chinese descent, because his mother speaks in Mandarin. He knows how to speak it and he will answer in English and sometimes back in Mandarin. His relationship with his mother is hard. His father is not in his life, but he learns to work through that. The movie will explain to you to why his father is not in his life. He learns that working hard at something and if a person fails, it does not mean that person cannot try again. If a person fails, that is a lesson just learned to keep going. Life will present you with obstacles, it is how you approach them that will determine and define a person.
