Movie Reviews

Great Olympic Coverage!
C. G. | 10/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie showcases Michael Phelps' achievements during the 2008 Olympic Games. The first half of the film shows the events he performed in. His events are followed by interviews and mini-segments aired during his competition(s).

Michael Phelps is accomplishing his goal of introducing and inspiring many to swimming! He's a fantastic athlete who works to inspire a nation. This film places Mr. Phelps in the best light and serves to illustrate his dedication and hard work. While Michael Phelps had the tendency to be "at a loss for words," his performances are driven by his competitiveness. Again, this film works to exhibit the best of Michael Phelps during the 2008 Olympic Games and it serves to remind us all why he's quickly become the best swimming athlete.

Overall, the pieces in this film have been taken directly from what audiences were shown during the Olympic Games with the exception of a few interviews. I would recommend this to any swimming/Michael Phelps fan out there!
My Niece loved it!

"My 11 Year old niece was thrilled to receive this gift. I didn't actually get to see it myself since she is in Fla, but she gives it rave reviews!"
Great gift for Olympic fans!

"My dad is glued to the couch during the Olympic games. I sent this and the highlights video to him for Christmas and when he opened the box last night he was thrilled! I don't know if he will be dissapointed after he watches it, but I think he will be happier for owning it."
