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 »

Expected MORE!
31 March 2001 | by kenandrafSee all my reviews

I expected more to this documentary.The best thing about this film is that it was done in IMAX form which really details everything so clearly and incredibly.I finally found an IMAX subject matter that I wanted to see for I am a die hard NBA fan.This was the first IMAX experience I have ever had and I liked it.My complaint is the fact that this documentary was too SHORT!I wanted more!Maybe about 30 minutes longer at least.The soundtrack was great and the film overall was done very well.It was just too rushed though.Oh well,it will still be worth your money if you are a Jordan or NBA fan......
