IMAX - Michael Jordan to the Max
Michael Jordan and Phil Jackson




Overview -
A cinematic homage to one of the greatest NBA basketball players ever, MICHAEL JORDAN TO THE MAX is a loving documentary that focuses on the last season the world-class Chicago Bulls player took part in before hanging up his sneakers. Directors James Stern and Don Kempf originally presented this concise celebration in IMAX format, but watching Jordan's signature jumps and plays is just as compelling on video and DVD. Jordan himself is famous not just for being a great player, but for his admirable work ethic and, in this day of utterly shameless behavior among professional athletes, is a man who takes his position as role model to the young very seriously. Narrated by Laurence Fishburne, the film explores Jordan's various moments of athletic genius, showing highlights of several tense games in which Jordan saved his team from defeat. The film also uses footage of Jordan's appearances in TV commercials, and in various interviews, which illustrate his unique personal dedication to sports, and to kids. This is not an in-depth biography, but rather an entertaining and highly inspirational portrait of a great athlete.
