Harlem Globetrotters - The Team That Changed the World (2005) Review
(More customer reviews)I found this DVD dull. I had expected to see actual games, not just snippets of a great shot or great dribbling here and there. This DVD spends way too much time showing people remembering the GlobeTrotters and not enough time showing actual play (and beloved Globetrotter antics).
Very disappointing (unless you are a history buff).

The feature program chronicles the Globetrotters' legendary upset of the World Champion Minneapolis Lakers in 1948, as well as the team's historic trip to Berlin in 1951. Their story will be told through former Globetrotters, current and former NBA coaches, as well as celebrities, and others. Chuck D, of the pioneer rap group, Public Enemy, will narrate the documentary. Bonus material includes: Tricks of the Trotters, Totters Today, 1950 World Tour Uncut, College All-Star Highlights, Washington Generals Feature and Outtakes. Critic's Quotes: Filled with vintage footage and great interviews related to the team that began in Chicago in 1928, it makes the case that the Globetrotters were as important as Jackie Robinson to mid-20th-century African American pride and civil rights.DON STEINBERG The Philadelphia Inquirer
