This movie is amazing. It is just how things happened and shocking info on James Brown. It will have you laughing. An all around great film. I saw it at the theater.
Excellent Actor good music
Chadwick Boseman's performance was Oscar-worthy. However, the movie lacked any continuity and cohesion. I blame the director for screwing up a good story to tell.
I liked it! Glad he got to be a superstar after his poor upbringing. The actor that played James Brown was convincing and is a really good dancer
Great music, fine acting, serious drama -- The film gives a quick overview on the music business back in the day when James Brown launched his career as a soul funk band leader. You'll like this movie if you want to see good acting and energetic stage performances rolled into a single movie.
Excellent Acting, and Great Music!
Excellent performance for Chadwick Boseman! I'd see it again on DVD.
A remarkable movie. Boseman was excellent -- and I've never even been a James Brown fan
Loved the Jennifer Love Hewitt cameo!
Great movie on James Brown! Loved it!
Well acted. Good story of the Godfather of Soul's life.
I loved the movie the músic was awesome. James Brown actor was great Needed more music.
Aykroyd's incessant hamminess never lets you forget that this only a movie.
THE GODFATHER OF SOUL !!!!
The Best Movie this Year!!! You thought you knew!! You didn't know the half of it !!!! LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT! !!???...
Fantastic movie. I loved the acting and the music. I was a big James Brown fan, and after seeing the movie I can't get his music out of my head. A must see for any James Brown fan. If you are too young to really remember him, it tells a very realistic story of his life. Go see it. You won't be disappointed.
Excellent review and trailer .Look forward to August 1st showing
