      Molly Eichel Philadelphia Inquirer There is a fascinating story buried in Iverson... Director Zatella Beatty does her best to tease it out of her subject. But her greenness at the helm shows, as she relies heavily on a cloying score, obvious imagery, and a simplistic structure. Nov 10, 2020 Full Review Kyle Fowle AV Club Iverson certainly chronicles the turbulent life of the point guard with great attention to personal detail, but its adherence to the standard "started from the bottom" narrative is disappointing. Rated: C+ Nov 10, 2020 Full Review Brian Lowry Variety As a cultural document with ramifications beyond its star, Iverson is certainly worthwhile. It's in its determination to let its namesake put the best spin on things where the film occasionally takes its eye off the ball. Nov 10, 2020 Full Review John Hendrickson Esquire Magazine There's no clear-cut answer, but Beatty's film succeeds in that it shows you how kids, particularly young, African-American boys, are a product of their environment. Nov 10, 2020 Full Review PJ Nabarro Patrick Nabarro There are some really interesting social politics: the absence of the father figure in many Black communities, and the sense that sport is often the only way out of the ghetto Rated: 3/5 Jul 8, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
