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 »

Great Pic.
28 June 2001 | by (St. Louis, Mo) – See all my reviews

Not the biggest fan of basketball but I have always admired Michael Jordan for the way he has conducted himself not only on the court, but off the court as well. He has always had a great sense of class and style that to this day has never been duplicated by very many people in any professional sport.



I thought that the documentary was well done and pretty insightful. I only wish they would have done a lot more of the wide angle shots which are usually associated with any of the IMAX productions. None the less I would recommend this film to anyone who either likes basketball or not, it is at the very least a very upbeat and moral boosting film.
