Excellent! Surpasses the first two!
15 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film remains true to the original 16 days of glory (some of the original music is re-used) while at the same time provides a fresh, behind-the-scenes look at the epic external and internal struggles of the athletes of the 25th Olympiad as only Bud Greenspan can. Television does the best it can to provide an inside look at the Olympic games, but this after-the-fact documentary provides a truly touching look at the true face of Olympic competition. The film also had the luck of covering a truly unforgettable Olympic games. The opening montage that showed the changes in the world between 1988 and 1992 was brilliantly orchestrated and the visual and auditory appeal of the film is quite thrilling. In particular, the way the Olympic song was timed directly in sync with the Spanish archer firing the flaming arrow into the Olympic cauldron sent deep chills down my spine when I saw it, as well as in subsequent Olympic years when it was re-aired. Though it is not currently in print, if you have the means, I highly suggest picking this film up. It does justice to the true drama of the games and then some.
