An American street basketball team known as Jabberwock has come to Japan, and mocked the Japanese basketball players after their easy win. Coach Kagetora enlists the help of the only players who can defeat them: The Generation of Miracles, and Kagami Taiga.
Original story written by the mangaka of Kuroko no Basket Tadatoshi Fujimaki.
Mod Edit: This review may contain spoilers.
True to the title it is about having one more game and what better way to do it then with the ultimate dream team.
Watched this in SM cinema Cebu, Philippines on 5/23/17.
The best streetball team in the world who are from America have come to Japan for an exhibition match and decimated their opponent and have insulted all of Japan's basketball players. In retaliation a coach decided to gather the generation of miracles featuring Kagami and a few benchwarmers to slay the Jabberwock team.
The opposing team keeps getting surprised by the level of talent the Vorpal Swords displays
but that doesn't mean that they themselves don't have their own abilities to counter even the almighty zone. Ability after ability, skill after skill and even an eye for an eye the game continues with each shot, dribble, pass, block, steal, rebound and sweat being countered at every turn.
Eventually the generation of miracles would use new abilities to counter the malevolent force of their enemies. From using multiple zones, zone technique combos, natural ability fusing, reawakenings and even old tricks just to get an edge over the opposition. The last game truly has alot of show off as a final sendoff.
Unfortunately not everyone goes into a zone here and there's also no 5 man zone present but it is still fun regardless of my personal disappointments. We also get to see one guy finally going 100% full power despite not going into zone.
It just goes to show that basketball is a truly fun game where even the most ridiculous of shots can go in. My personal motto in basketball is "No matter how perfect the form of your shot is, it is never 100% guaranteed while no matter how ridiculous or far your shot is, it is never a true 0% probability". So while Kuroko's basketball maybe full of unbelievable powers it doesn't mean it's not impossible for anyone. Though the consistency of theirs is where the true question of improbability lies. I myself personally am similar to Aomine since I do circus shots that amaze people with the consistency and even the level of ridiculous range and poses, like a 3-point skyhook now and then.
It also shows how far they have to reach if they ever want to play again on an international stage, especially if any of them ever want to aim for the NBA. Which is of course the aim of Kagami.
So give it a go and don't forget to stay and watch after the credits rolled for an extra farewell scene.
So I watched this a month or two ago and decided to write a review for this. I missed the beginning of it as I was late for the movie. When I arrived at the cinema, they were already finishing the first of the 4 quarters of the game so I'll give my review based on that.
Fairly interesting. Shows you the difficulties that the Generation of Miracles faced while they were going against Jabberwock, just like what you normally see in the seasons of Kuroko no Basuke where they were up against different schools in tournaments. Combining abilities and coming up with new
strategies to counter their enemy, etc.
They changed their art style in the movie compared to the anime which made me sad. I didn't like the art style because they looked so different. It looks so off for me but the animation followed the manga so I cannot really complain about it.
Nothing much to say. There are exciting scenes but it just shows them working together to overcome the challenges they're facing and then things about their abilities which you already know in the anime. They did not focus much on the other characters except The Generation of Miracles.
I enjoyed the movie and definitely worth it to watch as it shows most of them going into the zone and working together as team with great scenes. Also, the ending after the credits made me kind of sad and makes you wonder about things for Kagami and Kuroko in the future.
