Unlike Michael Jordan, this large-format movie demonstrates mostly unrealized potential.
Michael Jordan, sports icon, gets another buffing. Michael Jordan, person, remains private and just a little bit richer.
Michael to the Max is, aside from the IMAX process, the kind of routine documentary a local TV station might air on a Sunday afternoon when a ballgame is rained out.
In this authorized look at a great athlete, we are confronted by a man who has no weaknesses and no imperfections.
Essentially just a promotional film for Jordan as a product. It plays like a commercial for itself.
A fantastic portrayal of His Airness' on-court heroics -- not to mention visually stunning
