Excellent Documentary on the True Dream Team
22 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

The Dream Team (2012)

**** (out of 4)

Excellent documentary covering The Dream Team, the American basketball team who ended up winning the Gold medal at the 1992 Olympics. The documentary covers how the American team didn't win the Gold in 1988 so they decided to try and get the greatest players in the world. We get a quick rundown of all twelve players getting a call to play, their reactions and then we get straight to the basketball. I had just started watching basketball a couple years before this team was put together and even after all these years I can still remember watching them and just being amazed at what I saw. For those who didn't get a chance to see them, I think this wonderful documentary will show people what the hype was all about. What's so great is that all of the players are interviewed here and they talk about a wide range of topics from egos to the friendships made and even some more controversial moments including Barkley's elbowing in the first official game as well as Isiah Thomas being left off the team. This documentary will constantly have a smile on your face because you can just feel the joy and entertainment that the team brought to the entire world and it still makes you just sit there amazed at how much talent was on one court. The only negative thing that could be said is that the film didn't run long enough as it could have gone on for hours and I doubt anyone would have gotten bored.
