A large-format Imax film about the career of Michael Jordan.
A big, loud, expensive statement of the proposition that the Chicago Bulls guard was the greatest basketball player of all time. That nobody is likely to dispute the assertion is both the film's reason for being and its principal flaw. Until his retirement two years ago, Michael Jordan dominated his sport as no one else has, and he continues to be a ubiquitous media presence. No other individual athlete - perhaps no other individual - could so comfortably occupy the superhuman Imax format, but the format and the purposeful blandness of the script make Jordan seem remote, more icon than human being. — A.
