For decades, hoops fans and children alike have patiently waited to witness NBA stars and LooneyTunes team up to save the galaxy, the same way it happened when Michael Jordan starred on Space Jam.

After years of waiting, we're finally on the verge of witnessing another side of the story. Space Jam: A New Legacy, once again brings together the life of a basketball superstar with a cartoon universe.

Nonetheless, even though LeBron James has gotten some positive comments on his acting, it seems like critics just can't stand the movie, as they've given it a 43% score on Rotten Tomatoes along with some pretty harsh reviews.

Critics Completely Hated LeBron James' Space Jam: A New Legacy

(Transcript via ClutchPoints)

Chicago-Sun Times: “I’ve never seen anything like it. I also hope to never see anything like it again, and I wish I could unsee what I HAVE seen.”

Arizona Republic: “James is an engaging presence, but as this season with the Lakers proved, he alone just isn’t enough.”

New York Magazine/Vulture: “It fills a two-hour hole in the schedule, which will keep parents happy, and it brandishes the brand, which will keep shareholders happy. Whether it could have also been a good movie might not have crossed anyone’s mind.”

The New York Times: “Several jokes actually stick. But the purposeful sensory overload mostly yields head-spinning stupefaction, leaving a viewer feeling like Wile E. Coyote after hitting a mesa wall.”

The Hollywood Reporter: To whom this is meant to appeal is anyone’s guess, except presumably the studio’s marketing department.”

The Atlantic: “Space Jam: A New Legacy feels like a preview of a more terrifying, siloed future, one in which having an encyclopedic media library is more important than enjoying the work right in front of you.”

Variety: “Did the Goon Squad just dunk on LeBron James? Who cares when our eyeballs are busy identifying a group of rowdy fans as the Droogs from ‘A Clockwork Orange."

Channel Awesome:Awkward garbage fluff…but it’s very entertaining awkward garbage fluff.”

Then again, let's be honest for a second here. It's not like we're watching a WWII documentary. It's a movie about an NBA player teaming up with Buggs Bunny to beat some goons from outer space, so maybe we should go easy on them.
