I was forced to watch this and found it really disturbing!
The scariest movie of all time!
the farting pelican stole the show!
why anyone would be interested in a movie about a singing, dancing pedophile is beyond me...
reminded me of bob altman's popeye.
you'd think a movie about a notorious pedophile would make for a much more interesting film. zero stars.
the scariest film ever made.
zero stars. whitewashes the jackson story as much as the bashir film illuminated it. in a word, crap.
fluffy documentary and a pointless one at that. the bashir film remains the last word on michael jackson.
worthless as biography as it ignores jackson's history as a pedophile. jackson's albums always dated quickly, so the production numbers feel as stale as ever. file this under cash grab, which says a lot about the producers when you consider the money was made off the back of a child molester.
what could have been a compelling study of the forces that drive an individual to become a pedophile instead completely glosses over jackson's history as a child molester, effectively removing any point from the picture. doesn't rate a single star due to the cowardice of the filmmakers.
Bizarre and creepy adaptation of the Stephen King bestseller.
A great movie starring the most spectacular performer of all-time! RIP Michael Jackson
A terrible film and an even worse idea.
We miss you Michael !! RIP Amazing Movie!!
The major problem facing the producers of THIS IS IT is the dearth of any recent hits by Jackson, meaning the songs performed here are all very dated and fail to engage the audience in any meaningful manner.
this was a great side to see of mj. I KNEW HE COULD SING, BUT HE ACTUALLY WINT TO CHURCH! IT was awesome. i miss him.
Stunning! The most important movie of the 20th Century!!!
Awesome to infinity! MJ will always hold a special place in our hearts! I saw this movie 3 times and would never ever get tired of it!
I saw this amazing movie twice,MJ will be missed so very much by his fans incl. me! What a brillant & gifted person truly THE KING OF POP!!RIP MJ
Loved this movie!!! A must see for any fan of music!! You can see a genius @ work!
The best movie
it was amazing
Thanks to Mr. Ortega for bringing this wonderful movie to all of us. It shows Michael Jackson as he really was, the excellence of his talent and genius of his music. He was so gentle and respectful to the dancers and crew there, and they were in awe of him. He was a beautiful person and a joy to behold. I could watch him dance and sing all day. Be sure to stay until after the credits to see the lovely ending, I recommend this as a five-star movie.
Superbly put together! You will see more of the "real" Michael Jackson here than you ever would at a concert. A truly kind and gentle soul and a talented, gifted artist and performer. He was a tortured soul who had so much to offer the world. So sad he left too soon.
I was so touched to see him. I cried and I laughed. He was, and will remain the best entertainer in my opinion. Do you know how much you are loved Michael? I hope you can feel the love and see it. What a genius, both musically and spiritually. The movie shows he was lovely person to no end. It is a tragedy he died the way he did. Rest in peace Michael. XO You will always live in my heart, and I'm sure in the hearts of millions of others as well.
Excellent! Felt like I got a front row ticket and backstage tour of a concert that wouldn't exist if not for this film! An amazing tribute to a musical genius.
it is a realy great movie.iv'e been deing to see it
WOW! What an absolutely amazing movie. Leaves me speechless and in awe of what a wonderfully, gifted man Michael Jackson was. Thank you Kenny Ortega and Co. for putting this film together so that the public could get a glimpse of what MJ was so good at doing. He will truly be missed and remembered. This film is a must see! Love you, Michael!!
This movie was AMAZING!!! Even my mom who is 70 loves it!!!
i love it so much too bad he never got to live his dream of performing live this last time
Fantastic movie!Ilove you Michel!
Awesome movie. MJ is the master of music and stage and looked healthy and happy. A lovely tribute to his musical genius. I grew up listening to and enjoying his music and give this a 5 star rating.
i have seen it 3times and plan to go again, he was a amaving and in no way to frail or sick he still had the amazing talent. and he showes it. rest in peace micheal.
Great movie and worth seeing.
That was a great movie for the greatest of all times. And it was still just a small part of his talent; a small piece of what MJ was as a person, performer, father, humanitarian and a great human being. I've grown up with his music and we have always adore his gift. The movie is an excellent tribute to what his concert would be. That would be the most tremendous come back on the stage. The film gave me both sorrow and happiness. What a huge loss for the world. We'll always remember him.
The major problem facing the producers of THIS IS IT is the dearth of any recent hits by Jackson, meaning that the songs performed here are all very dated and fail to engage the audience in any meaningful manner. 1/5
Excellent, too bad we don't get to see the actuall concert. It would have been untopable. Just the way Michael had planned it.
best movie, concert ever! If his practices were this good i can't even imagine how good the real deal would have been
Definitely a must-see. Not on ly the music is good, but we get to actually see the genius at work...and what would have been perhaps the greatest concert ever.
What a beautiful Movie! So sad that he is gone.
