Storyline

A close look at Bo Jackson, a sports hero of mythical proportions, and how the "Bo Knows" Nike campaign shaped how the world perceived him. Without winning a Super Bowl or World Series, or even having what some consider a "great" career in either sport, Bo will be forever be known as one of the greatest and most famous athletes of all time. This film will look at the marketing of athletes, impossible expectations and the legend of Bo Jackson. Written by ESPN Films

A Thorough Greatest Hits Reel - Nothing More, Nothing Less
12 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

A very by-the-numbers summary of life in the spotlight for Bo Jackson. Though we get a few short sound bites from friends and teammates who knew him before he became a marketing slogan, the vast majority of this short film is spent breathlessly recounting his greatest hits in MLB and the NFL. There's plenty of material; Bo was truly one-of-a-kind and though his career flickered out early, for a short while it burned brighter than a supernova. I just kept waiting for something more than a long-form highlight reel, and evidently that wasn't the purpose of this exercise. An enjoyable trip down memory lane for anyone caught in Bo's thrall in the early '90s, it's not particularly intimate or revealing.
