The premise closely follows that of the game.
The film received mixed reviews. The more critical reviews came from those who questioned why an adaption was made for an ill-received game. However, the film has garnered a small fanbase, with them agreeing that the film was superior to the game it was based on, as well as praising the animation, acting and story.
- This wouldn't be the only film by Warner Bros. to feature a basketball star. A few months after this film Warner Bros. released Space Jam, which starred Michael Jordan.
- Interestingly, this film featured Michael Jace who played Shaquille O'Neal. Michael Jace would go on to play Michael Jordan in the 1999 telefilm Michael Jordan: An American Hero and Michael Jordan would appear in Space Jam by Warner Bros. who released this film.
- Electronic Arts, the publishers of Shaq-Fu, didn't give Elliot Strange their blessing to produce this film. When he brought it up to them, they laughed it off and simply told him he could make a film based on Shaq-Fu.
- Trailers for the film had the tagline "At least you're not playing the adventure."
- The video release only featured a trailer for Space Jam prior to the start of the film. This was Strange's idea due to him wanting to use promotions relevant to the film.
