Stephen Curry: The Underrated Movie (2023) Review

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 of three, three points first. sounds like the bottom line, Curry changed the way basketball teams use the defensive line for shots. That’s a compelling point, but this film doesn’t have the same analytical interest in the game or in getting to know Curry in depth. It’s just about what keeps him going.

“Stephen Curry: Underrated” invests a surprising amount of time in the team that didn’t overlook him and, in turn, covered his incredible ball control with a great deal of 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 Madness, 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 then 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 he’s 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 easy modern-day 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 an oddly famous moment in which he’s filming a Subway ad, transported via green screen to Italy, is weak on curiosity despite the humor in his unexpected inclusion. “Stephen Curry: Underrated” doesn’t understand what it means to be a superstar like Curry so much as put a gloss on his constructs.
