When the film starts showing a few highlights of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, one of the clips is of Michael Jordan doing a side-to-side (right side of the hoop to the left side of it) reverse move and scoring. This is a move that he did in Game 2 of the 1997 NBA Finals, more than a year earlier. Although the Bulls are playing the Utah Jazz in the same instance, this documentary is supposed to be based on the 1998 season. See more »
Great Homage to the World's All-Time Greatest Athlete.
"Michael Jordan to the Max" was an Omnimax documentary detailing the superstar's final championship run with the NBA's Chicago Bulls at the end of the 1998 season. Interviews and amazing archive coverage makes this an entertaining and vastly interesting viewing experience. Truly the film does lose a little luster on a non-Omnimax screen, but overall the production is first class all the way with intriguing interviews and cinematography adding to the movie's superiority. If you want to see a good Michael Jordan flick avoid "Space Jam" and watch this twice instead. Laurence Fishburne narrates this must for all fans of the international sports icon. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
