What's the difference between documentary and hagiography? Directors James Stern and Don Kempf don't seem to have given the matter much thought.

An honorific but unmoving portrait of the Chicago Bulls' No. 23.

Unlike Michael Jordan, this large-format movie demonstrates mostly unrealized potential.

Michael Jordan is one of the few athletes big enough to deserve a film such as "Michael Jordan to the Max."

Jordan was born to be an admired all-star. But as the film so eloquently shows, he worked hard to be the classy superstar that he turned out to be.

The filmmakers give us what we always want when it comes to MJ: images of a man caught in the act of being superhuman.

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.

Essentially just a promotional film for Jordan as a product. It plays like a commercial for itself.

The film is more like an infomercial in which the pitchman is also the product.
