5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational December 15, 2001
Format:DVD
This is, in my opinion, the finest video/documentary on Michael Jordan. It is head and shoulders above all of the dunk'o'rama highlight fodder which fills all of the other Jordan videos.
The production values are top notch. The colours are vivid and the sound is crisp. The voiceover commentary is provided by Laurence Fishburne and sets the tone well. Because the movie was filmed using IMAX technology it has a wide view of the on-court action which allows the viewer to take in everything which is happening. The DVD extras are more of an afterthought and do not really bring much to the mix.
As I alluded to before, this film focuses more on Jordan's leadership and his burning desire to win, which is a refreshing change.
Jordan is one of my favourite athletes. It is nice to finally see a production which actually pays him and his abilities the respect he deserves. I highly recommend this film, even more so to those people who never saw him play prior to his comeback with the Wizards, as they will see him when he was at the absolute pinnicle of human skill and ability.

2.0 out of 5 stars Do you have a big TV? February 15, 2001
Format:DVD
I mean, a really REALLY big TV? If the answer is no, then you probably shouldn't get this DVD/VHS. Make no mistake: MJ to the Max is an IMAX movie, and you'll be very disappointed when you see it at home. About half of the movie has these really annoying picture-in-picture shots, which take up maybe 25% of the screen, and made me feel like I was watching streaming videos on the web. I'm sure this "technique" worked fine on a 80-foot-high screen, but it definitely doesn't on a regular TV.

In terms of the content, the movie also disappoints. It's nothing more than a rehash of ESPN highlights, except that it is shot at awkward angles and further away from the action. Again, this may have worked on a huge IMAX screen, but certainly not on a regular TV. The movie also fails to provide any in-depth behind-the-scenes material.

My 2 cents: Save your money unless 1) you are a die-hard MJ fan, and/or 2) you have a really really REALLY big TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Jordon to the Max DVD will not disapoint December 16, 2000
Format:DVD
I have seen the MJ to the MAX eight times at the IMAX. Truly sepectacular. You have not experienced MJ until you see this DVD. It hightlights his early years at North Caroliana as well as the last 3 championship including the awesome 70+ win season. If you have a Dolby Digital reciever and a big screen the image of of entering the United Center with MJ for the last time will blow you away, you will feel the greatness.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only HD footage of His Airness ever made March 9, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
This BluRay is in true HD quality at 1080i, and was mastered from the IMAX film. This is much better quality than the Ultimate Jordan BluRay which is in VHS quality and not HD (because the source was VHS). The Audio of this "To The Max BluRay" is in DTS. Great price for less than $15 here at Amazon. A must-have for any Jordan fan. It's too bad there are no other HD videos of Jordan in his prime. IMAX film is extremely high in resolution and theoretically could be remastered in 2048i (give it another 10 years).

2.0 out of 5 stars Jordan's the man, but this film is weak June 15, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I wanted to see this at IMAX, but didn't get to. I'm very happy about that now. I bought the dvd and I gotta say it's pretty weak stuff. Nothing new, same old stuff you heard and saw a million times in the latter part of Jordan's career. In short, this film is a dud. It's like reading a Sports Illustrated for kids that's just a "get you up to speed" type of thing. Lots of praise, no controversy. Where's the gambling, Isiah Thomas hating guy who gave his teammates hell? This movie is all sweet and no bitter and it makes for very boring material. If you want to see a real Jordan video, watch Playground or Airtime (which are said to be coming out on a dvd called "Michael Jordan's Ultimate dvd"). If you want some real insight into the real Jordan, read "The Jordan Rules." But don't buy this Hallmark card movie. Besides, those of us who remember Jordan back in the 80s and early 90s can tell you that he was much more exciting then. Even when he wasn't winning championships, he was more entertaining than this whole Lakers squad is now. But "Jordan to the Max" is nothing to get excited about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good while we're waiting... March 12, 2001
Format:DVD
...for the super-ultra-deluxe Michael Jordan DVD Boxset. I couldn't watch this on IMAX because there aren't those kind of screens where i live, so i've been waiting for this release for a long time. I have to say that i was surprised, i didn't expect it to be as good as it is, specially in the technical issue : the 5.1 mix is VERY GOOD, and it has a great image quality...but as all IMAX movies, is too short. 45 minutes of MJ is just not enough for his fans. You'll see a short review of the Bulls last playoffs run mixed with some highlight from his career. You won't learn anything new about his life or his career, but if you're his fan you'll really enjoy watching once again those incredible things he used to do. The 21 min. "Behind the scenes" doesn't add much and neither does the 2 min. "Bullet Time" featurette.
As i said before, as a big basketball fan you'll enjoy this DVD, but thinking about the possibilities of the DVD format, the next time i won't expect less than a big boxset with as much MJ as it can fit in there.
