Editorial Reviews

Susan's story is one of pain and triumph. She went from a child with learning disabilities, to an adult with relentless passion. At the age of 47, she shocked the world with her beautiful voice, and became a constant on the widely televised Britain's Got Talent. She exceeded everyone's expectations and went on to sell almost 4 million copies of her debut album "I Dreamed a Dream." This is the story of how a shy loner from Blackburn, Scotland went from "Pain To Fame."

1.0 out of 5 stars What a terrible dvd about Susan Boyle March 17, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Susan Boyle too much but I hate this dvd. What a terrible dvd about Susan Boyle. There isn't any subtitle available, quality is very poor, not included any booklet and very poor quality cover images. Documentary is very boring. There isn't any interview with Susan Boyle and other interviews are taked from Youtube in poor quality. Video quality and audio quality is really poor in these videos. Some people talking about her but believe me you will never want to listen them. So I don't accept this dvd and I think Intrinem Films make money from her fame. NEVER BUY THIS DVD & DON'T SPEND YOU MONEY & STAY AWAY FROM THIS DVD

2.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Rate Documentary March 2, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very disappointing unauthorized biography with pieced together clips of Susan Boyle's life assembled from various media sources - very dry narration - with a few interesting clips from UK reporters interviewing her brother, Larry King interviewing Elaine Page and the Britain's Got Talent stars. Slow-paced, but for fans of Susan worth the still photos and the video interviews. I wished I had bought the used version and save a few more dollars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amateurish March 11, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Quite frankly, this is an amateurish quickly made documentary meant to make a fast buck from Susan Boyle's fame. If you have an all-region DVD player, get the British "Susan Boyle Story" from the BBC which you can get for about $15.00 on Ebay. It's much better done.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what you think it is... February 3, 2011
Format:DVD
I recieved this item as a gift. I truly am a great fan of Susan Boyle, so I was anxious to watch a documentary all about her. What a disappointment!

It begins with a bunch of photos of scenery. A few pictures of Susan, and zero video in the first 15 minutes. The information given, either while watching still shots of Susan and her family or one of the two "commentators", is easily found online or in tabloid magazines. I don't believe I learned anything indepth or new while watching this DVD. It was put together by people who obviously just want to make money using Susan's success as a way to do it. Shame on them. And on Amazon for offering such garbage. The word "Cheesey" is appropriate here.

I was hugely disappointed. Thus the "no star" rating (unless it doesn't accept that and I have to choose a star. If there is a star on this rating, know that's what happened).

Really, if you want to know about Susan Boyle, this is not the DVD to buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Susan Boyle From Pain to Fame November 17, 2010
Format:DVD
Don't waste your money. It would be a poor gift. Very amateur. Not one complete song in it. You would expect it to contain the famous audition that most of the world has seen. Nothing original that I have not seen elsewhere in terms of photos. Most appear to be from past news coverage. Susan Boyle - From Pain To Fame

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing! October 12, 2010
By Marlene
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This should never have been listed as a "movie". When I ordered this item I expected it to be an actual movie not a poorly executed documentary that did not include one single song performed by Susan Boyle. It included photographs and some news videos and was not as good as an amateur home movie. As a huge fan of Susan Boyle's I was not only disappointed but felt that I had been "ripped off". I actually threw it in the garbage because I wouldn't feel right giving it or selling it to anyone else. This "movie" did a disservice to an extraordinary performer who deserved better. I am thankful that I bought her wonderful CD!

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful January 16, 2011
By Cindy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Susan Boyle from Pain to Fame is just a terrible DVD. I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my Mom as she loves Susan Boyle's music. This DVD is a HUGE disappointment. The quality is amateurish, very poor. It's as if someone create this in their basement. The makers "borrowed" mostly pictures and pieced this together. Reminded me of a school project (only I think a student would do a much better job). I was going to donate it to our local library, but after viewing it in its entirety-it's going in the trash bin.

1.0 out of 5 stars DREADFUL! January 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dreadful exploitation of the Susan Boyle name. Don't get taken advantage of like I did. Just because something has her name on it does not mean it is a valuable item.

I was very disappointed with this product. I would have liked her to sing in it. However, she didn't. It was about her time before she became a star.
