Scanialara You won't be disappointed!
Derry Herrera Not sure how, but this is easily one of the best movies all summer. Multiple levels of funny, never takes itself seriously, super colorful, and creative.
Arianna Moses Let me be very fair here, this is not the best movie in my opinion. But, this movie is fun, it has purpose and is very enjoyable to watch.
Bob This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.
Bryan Lam Immortal. Great artists shall be viewed as the treasure of the world. Michael had been mistreated by mean media and selfish people around him. All the music fans in the world will remember him as the king of pop and an everlasting legend forever.However, Michael is a 100% genius in music field. He still devotes his energy and time on creating immortal masterpieces and promoting pop music to the people around the world. His talent makes him a popular artist, and his attitude of hardworking enables him a respectful landmark in music history.It's quite crazy that such kind of great man will be mistreat as a freak by mean persons and bullshit reporters. History will give him a real name of king of pop and the greatest charity unit ever!!
britishdominion It is hard to write a review for something so bare-bones and incomplete as "This Is It". It's not really a concert movie, the kind that drops the viewer into the audience, experiencing the big show better than any ticket holder ever could. No, this simple handicam special is more like a full-length "bonus feature" on a real Jackson DVD. It's Michael Jackson at half-speed, so as not to blow out his vocal chords or wear his body down for the "real" shows - 50 potentially stamina-sapping performances planned for London's 02 Arena. It's ghoulish to watch a clearly not-young Jackson: inspired at times, sometimes going through the motions, reclaiming past hits, old dance moves - and not think about what is really happening in his life, and what is just about to. The other reaction is that the film seems shamelessly calculated. The only reason this footage exists is to allow technical crews and talent viewing backstage see where the show needed tightening or improvement. Hastily chopped-in reminiscences repackaged and padded out as a feature film, THIS IS IT smacks of quick-buck opportunism, cold and morbid.Admittedly, the show looked like it would have been a wowzer, and there's no doubt that Jackson had talent to burn. You do see very bright flashes of it from time to time in several dialed-up performances in THIS IS IT.Most reports paint Jackson as a perfectionist about his performance (you even see it in this film where he dressed-down a crewmember), and through that lens, I think this film would certainly not have seen the light of day if it had been allowed to pass through Jackson's hyperultra-managed image factory. Despite it's inconsequential nature, as a last-chance to see him work, the picture may offer fans an emotional resonance not shared by this reviewer - and even some closure from his untimely death. For viewers interested in reliving the excitement and stage presence that thrilled audiences around the world for four decades, this film is decidedly not it.
wilson trivino Michael Jackson left without saying good-bye but at least he got to say farewell in This is It.This pseudo documentary style production is made up of footage of Michael Jackson as he prepared his last concert fitting titled This is It.The mix of interviews, dancers, musicians, and the behind the scenes views of the King of Pop while working on his choreography and music, you get a sense that he still had the magic that made Michael Jackson.Even though you don't get a sense of his off stage persona you do get clear view that we have last one of music greats.A must see to those that want to get to see him one last time.
shaymaazaki if you want to know why MJ is number one in the whole world you have to see this movie you will see a perfect way in working you will see how he keep calm and full of confidence in himself you will see how he loved his work and how the dancers and singers believe in him they just do his orders and work in a group you will see how he was amazing in his dancing beside his wonderful voice and a wonderful performance oh GOD we all need him come back cause of his talent he gave the world a real gift which was him and all of that without any acting of him because he didn't know that it will be a movie after he is ... well i cant say that i think he still alive between us
