This review is from: Michael Jackson: This Is It (DVD)
I dont think this is the greatest movie in the world as many do, but this movie is worthwhile because it shows Michael Jackson as a normal, working, professional person. Why this was never documented while he was one of our greatest living creative treasures, I cannot fathom.
This movie shows MJ working. Rehearsing. Making his paces on stage. Sometimes he dances and believe me, the man still had the magic. His backup dancers are in the 18-20 year old range - and MJ blows them out of the water without even trying.
There is no Wacko Jacko stuff here. Just the working, professional musician Michael Jackson.
Why people like Bashir would make a scandalous documentary about MJ when he had the opportunity to document a genius, living artist at work, is beyond comprehension.
And for all the haters -- the news reports now say that the FBI investigated MJ for 10 years looking for evidence of child molestation and they came up with NOTHING.
