The film tells us about the incredible events that occurred at the 1972 Olympics in Munich. The USSR basketball team was able to defeat the unbeatable Americans in the final of the basketball tournament. Three seconds before the end of the match, the Americans led by one point advantage. The Americans have already begun to rejoice in the victory, they were sure that in these three seconds the outcome of the match will not change. But not only the outcome of the match changed, but the whole basketball history. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

Trivia

The last scenes of the film - the scenes of the final match of the 1972 Olympic Games basketball tournament between the USSR and the US national teams - were filmed in the first filming days. Instead of a crowd of fans, advertising and other attributes of the Munich match, the shooting technique used the "chromakey" technology. See more »

Goofs

In the finals the soviet coach tries to motivate the team by calling "ostriches" and tell them to "open the wings and fly". However ostriches can't fly. See more »

Go watch Miracle (2004)
31 October 2020 | by darinkadol-27111See all my reviews

Sure the movie is entertaining, given the fact that it plagiarized Miracle (2004). If you really think about it the movie makes very little sense both story wise and characters' motivation. The relationships of the characters have no actual development, there are a lot of plots that were put in simply for the dramatic effect. It is an insult to the actual people that are portrayed in the movie how they change all of them, almost if not all the characteristics of the players are made up and don't actually represent the people behind the names. Maybe worst of all is the advertising of the movie, getting called "a documentary" or saying that it is an accurate retelling, when it couldn't be farther from the truth. The director prides himself on the accuracy of the movie when a lot of things in the movie are anything but the truth. If you want to watch a better movie, with character motivations that make sense and a plot that doesn't contradict itself watch "Miracle".
