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 »

A medium that finally suits Michael!
16 May 2000 | by (Ann Arbor, Michigan) – See all my reviews

Michael Jordan to the Max should be seen by every man woman, child and their brother! Michael is an awe-inspiring athlete, and it was a privilege to see him "larger than life" eight stories high. Thank you to the directors and producers of this film for putting together a film that teaches good....fulfilling a dream, not throwing in the towel when the cards are stacked against you. In this age of movie violence, Jim Stern and company have made something truly special. You owe it to yourself to see this film. (And for those people who aren't looking for inspiration, see this film to see Michael Jordan eight stories high! (The film uses special effects by Manex...the people who did the bullet-time effects from The Matrix)
