The Greatest Sports Documentary produced by HBO
I had seen this years ago on HBO, and videotaped it at that time. Obviously, this DVD is of far superior quality to that video.
As always, HBO does a masterful job at telling the story of the 1980 "miracle on ice" Olympic Hockey team, and carefully explains, through interviews with players, Coaches( including the late Herb Brooks), and sportswriters both from our country and the then Soviet Union, why at that time in our nation's history , this was so much more than a mere hockey game. Liev Schreiber has to be the best narrator around, and those interviewed further recall the significance of the following game against Finland, which a lot of people forget, or simply don't realize, that our "kids" still had to come from behind and win in order to get the Gold Medal. Had that game been lost after the miraculous win against Russia, we might not have medaled at all. One of the greatest sports documentaries ever made, and certainly the #1 sporting event of the twentieth century. Nothing else even comes close, if you're an American !Read full review...

A true American story showcasing the Amrican spirit
This is a terrific movie. It uplifts your spirit and makes you feel good about being an American. Wonderful cast and storyline.
Movie was great. It showed how things were back in 1980 and how this team brought the whole USA together.
This was actually bought for a friend as a gift. It's very informative and great history of the U.S. Hockey Team of 1980 and their trials while playing.

This is a great documentary on possibly the greatest moment in Amercan sports. I bought it for my Senior English class for a unit we were studying on David vs. Goliath stories
this is a must have for any true hockey fan. This is a Story of the 1980 olympic team and there triumphs as a team and what it meant to the nation at critical time in history.
A great historically-significant document
I love this as a companion to Miracle, the movie with Kurt Russell. This DVD is not comprehensive, but it is fun to watch, well edited, and all-in-all well worth it for the hockey enthusiast.
