Goofs

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 »

The message doesn't fit the medium
29 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is a case of trying to fit a nice little picture into the wrong frame. The IMAX screen works wonderfully with expansive sites as was the case with Everest. This film is filmed too close up to make it work for anything except a sore neck or a headache. The only shots that were effective were those wide angle shots of the stadium of the skyline. I could not follow the action under the basket shot from floor level. The images were just too big. Besides this fundamental flaw - it just didn't work - the content felt like one big commercial or promotion. Come on now, using clips of three of Michael's TV ads to show what a great personality he has???? I can see how this project might have taken root. Take a bigger than life superstar and make him even bigger. I sure like Michael, but not because of this piece but in spite of this.
