Living close to the OG Nike HQ, the building is spot on. They couldn't use the original since its a Sheriff's Office now and was donated by Nike.

I hope it’s pretty historically accurate. Would be fascinating to see how Nike went from being one of many shoe companies to world domination on essentially a single idea.

When I was at Nike, I was what they called a "Storyteller" and had to take a test on the history so I could give tours to be hires and talk history. Based on what I know and the previews, the only thing that I can't confirm is Sonny showing to at MJs parents' house. Everything else seems spots on.

Btw, Phil Knight also didn't like the Swoosh and thought it would be temporary until they found something better. It grew on him too. Phil had a history of not liking things but trusting those around him.

This was a fantastic movie. Acting especially was top notch. Made me want to play basketball again.

Wife and I watched this over the weekend. The throwback atmosphere was wonderful and we both relished the nostalgia.

The movie was great and thought it was really cool to look into the birth of a worldwide sensation. Amazing.

A good grade for this one. I enjoyed it, though it wasn't earth-shattering.
Right? Solid adult drama. Man, they used to make a lot of these and they are just so rare.

Really good. We watched this the other night. Solid performances all the way around and getting some background in the industry was pretty cool.
