If you are not a MJ fan, you will hate this movie. If you are a normal MJ fan, you will hate this movie. If you are the biggest MJ fan in the world, you will HATE this movie.
Pop question hot shot....What's the stupidest idea ever? No Michael Jackson music in a Michael Jackson movie! Yep that's right. No Beat It, no Thriller, no Billy Jean. Just cheesey music.
Take the money you were about to spend on this DVD and pay someone to kick you in the balls, hard, because that would be better than this movie.
1:The movie begins in 1984-not when he began recording
solo and having plastic surgery and first became a star.
It just picks up where The Jacksons - An American Dream (The Complete Miniseries)
2:The lead actor is dreadful.His face is flat and he
looks more like Powder then MJ (if you remember that movie.And his acting is,at best highly charicatured.
3:Michael's manager in the 1980's Frank Dileo is depicted
but under another name and the actor looks NOTHING like
4:The events depicted in this movie read like a long list
of the National Enquirer's strange and weird fact file
they've kept on Michael for years.Nothing really substantive is revealed.
5:None of Michael Jackson's music is featured-to be replaced by needless dance montages to very ER-ish muzak.
6:This is actually too short.No event is depicted in any
detail,prefering to focus more on Michael's obsession
with his Neverland ranch.
7:His music career is horribly skimped over.The period between 1985 and 1990 (which included the Bad period) is ignored completely.The emphasis
always slings around Michael's odd personal life.
8:The lead character does alot of 'justifying living'
routines I doubt would ever interest the real Michael.Read more ›
1. Entertainment 2. Music 3. Passion 4. -and HEART!
-And any true Michael Jackson fan can tell you, he is all of these things and so much more.
So I was very excited to watch it, thinking it would have some of the high caliber actors and charm of the previous film. Little did I know how WRONG I would be.
This movie SUCKED!
1.) Flew Alexander (Michael Jackson Actor) Should be ashamed of himself. Disgraceful portrayal of an Afican American Icon and Music Legend. I see why his career as an actor has fallen...
2) It portray's Michael Jackson as a "wimpy or scared" individual. (he was soft spoken and kind; Don't get it confused with weakness)
3.) It has little or NO reference to his Musical Career or Acheivements. (Mostly paints a negative view of his failed marriages and his trial)
4.) The stage make-up and wardrobe was horrible. (Michaels skin looked green rather than his real color that change due to his vitilago)
5.) No "KNOWN" Actors in this film
6.) This film was NOT endorsed by Michael Jackson or the Estate
7.) Though it displays aspects of his later life (kids, trials, and marriage...) they all seem to be out of Chronilogical order.
In all this film was just plain horrible. If you are a BIG MJ Fan please stay away and DONT BUY THIS! It will only upset you and make you want to "kick yourself" for buying it!
Hope this review helps :)
Forever a Fan of Mj!!!
