Great Concert From The Man In His Prime !,
This review is from: Michael Jackson: Live in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour (DVD)
This concert was performed and recorded in 1992 with Michael Jackson at around 33 years of age and definitely in his prime.
I only bought this DVD after he passed away as I was expecting to buy a DVD of his upcoming tour as one of the shows would have been recorded for sure. After seeing this one, I too, couldn't believe I waited this long to acquire it !
Don't expect high definition sound and picture quality like some reviewers, but in saying that, the picture and sound quality of this show are more than acceptable, in fact still very good.
The line up of songs is terrific and are performed with incredible intensity and emotion. The guy definitely sings most of the songs and if there was any lip synching in parts, it was not obvious to me. I was not put off by other comments on this matter.
Yes, there are shots of people passing out and being taken away, right from the start of the first song - what a waste of money for them ! And what a crowd - massive in size and all overawed by the occasion. I actually felt these shots added interest and really helped give the viewer a feel for the whole event. The only time audience shots were a little overdone, was probably during "Man In The Mirror" at the end of the concert where we see no less than six people being carted out of the arena. Overall I felt the balance between stage and audience shots was pretty good.
If this is the only full live concert filmed and likely to be released on DVD of this talented man, then buy it, enjoy it, don't look for faults in it and appreciate the guy at his best !
Hopefully we will see a DVD of his rehearsals for the 2009 tour with over 100 hours being taped - who knows.
Michael Jackson, you will be sorely missed !

Nicely said G. Pearson. My sentiments exactly!! Throughout the years I was always hoping for a comeback. It's so sad that will never be. So I keep watching this DVD and never get tired of his amazing talent!
