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 »

Good (IMAX) movie for all basketball or NBA fans.
20 September 2005 | by nikola_djordjicSee all my reviews

It's a good quality movie, about Michael's last games in the Playoffs '98, when he won his sixth and last NBA Championship title. The best about movie, are high quality shots from Michael in game with a good music background. All in all not bad movie, but I would recommend also ''Michael Jordan: His Airness'' and ''Ultimate Jordan'' (Both movies are perfect 10 and a must see for basketball fans). Michael Jordan: His Airness is a half documentary, half biography about Michael Jordan, its a movie about Jordan's life story, that shows much more attractive moves from Jordan in game, with a great music background, much better than in ''Michael Jordan to the Max''. It's an awesome movie, and I, as a big basketball fan, especially NBA fan, enjoyed it much more than movie ''M.J. to the Max''. And about movie ''Ultimate Jordan'', it is as good as ''M.J.:His Airness'', maybe little shorter, but it has all that super stuff from Michael Jordan, all the moves that made him famous, shown in NBA Action style (10 best dunks, 10 best shots in Jordan style, 10 best shots in last game's seconds for victory, 10 best passes + commentary from other famous NBA players, all with great dynamic music background which is similar to the one in NBA Action shows).

So, to sum it up. This movie is not bad, especially because of it's quality (IMAX). The other two movies that I mentioned, doesn't have IMAX quality, but are much better and more enjoyable, and they have everything that movie about one of the greatest basketball athletes and a basketball legend, should have. I own all three movies and together they make a great collection for basketball or NBA fans. If you were Jordan's fan or just love basketball, go get them. You won't regret it. ;-)
