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 »
"Michael Jordan to the Max" should never have been screened at IMAX. There were a few reasons for this, although the biggest problem was how chopped up the production was. There was minimal continuity throughout the screening, detracting from the IMAX experience. It was much more suited to the kind of video you watch before playing sport.
For much of the movie only about a sixth of the screen was being used. Examples of this were the many commercials Jordan has appeared in. I did not go to IMAX to watch commercials I've already seen Jordan and his sponsors repeatedly screen on TV.
At least I got to see some of the great Luc Longley in action.
