Editorial Reviews

So much has been said about the turbulent life and phenomenal career of Michael Jackson that it has become almost impossible to disentangle the man from the myth. More than any other icon in history of popular music, Michael Jackson remained a charismatic but elusive figure of heated debate. But one fact will forever remain undisputed: his extraordinary talent for creating truly original music, loved by millions. And despite setbacks that would have ended careers of lesser men, Michael Jackson's accomplishments as the King of Pop will remain some of the most impressive in music history.

Featuring candid contributions from Janet Jackson, Brooke Shields, Quincy Jones, Sheryl Crow, Diana Ross and rare, behind-the-scenes footage, this documentary looks into the life of one of the most enigmatic and flamboyant pop stars of our time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new October 16, 2009
Format:DVD
It looks like it was quickly thrown together so someone could make a few bucks. You learn nothing from it that you couldn't find out from reading wikipedia and it plays none of his music. The clips are not good quality either.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and money-unauthorized and uninteresting November 24, 2009
By TJ-STL
Format:DVD
I do not have time to say much but I felt I had to protect fans such as myself from buying JUNK. Michael is unquestionably the GREATEST ENTERTAINER that ever lived, But he was human and had faults and limitation "outside of the entertainment" world. He was used and exployed by managers, friends and SONY. But this video was fluff with NO NEW CONTACT and contained no new information or insight into Michael or his world. It was clearly an attempt to quickly put together. with no budget, a collection of old news photos and even some said "video taken by a fan". They should allow ZERO STARS for juck like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Great December 6, 2009
Format:DVD
Thankfully, this video didn't cost much. There were a few segments that I was glad to have. But it was obviously thrown together in a hurry and the editing was horrible. The narrator's comments frequently didn't match the pictures or video clip. They would show a picture or video clip that was not the same time period the narrator was speaking about. Not well done.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for Jackson Fans - Cashing in on Michael's Passing. February 7, 2010
Format:DVD
True Michael Jackson fans should avoid this DVD. It was given to me as a gift, and I immediately was doubtful based upon the unknown production company behind its creation (not to mention the short running time). It is pure capitalization, turning the passing of a the world's greatest superstar into quick dollars. It is filled with errors, repetitive imagery and poorly written and delivered voiceover. You will realize within the first few moments that you've been taken when the images no longer coincide with what's being discussed, and it shows itself for the "thrown together" kitchen sink of material it is. Don't waste your time or your dollars. What a shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars I bought myself a big terrible regret. January 27, 2010
By XHX
Format:DVD
I want to say "I felt I had to protect fans such as myself from buying JUNK" too. I don't know why Wal-Mart is selling this JUNK. I felt so sorry for my money. I just want to bend the disk After I watched it.This video has nothing new and contained a lot negative materials,and the Michael's mug shot stilled on screen for more than ten seconds. DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible - An awful production job January 18, 2010
Format:DVD
This DVD is absolutely terrible. They obviously didn't get the rights to any of his songs because NONE of them are played during the video. While the announcer talks about an event that happened in Michael's life, they would show footage of something completely different! Very poorly put together and unprofessional. I would not recommend that anyone purchase this DVD. I'm not even sure I'd recommend it to anyone if it were free! haha. It's really not even worth your trouble.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Woth It January 10, 2010
Format:DVD
This isn't worth the buy. As others have said, it looks quickly thrown together. I find the pictures and the video's shown don't at all match the naration of the DVD. There are better biographies to buy out there. This isn't one of them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy December 29, 2009
Format:DVD
Bought it for $4.99 from Best Buy thinking it was a bargain. Not a single Michael Jackson song played in the movie. Performances are accompanied by some background music rather than the song being shown. It is more of a narration of Michael Jackon's life history.
