Critic Reviews for Michael Jackson's This Is It
Don't watch this documentary film expecting to find insight into Jackson's troubled psyche, or to spot premonitions of his impending death, watch instead for glimpses of his peerless talent.
Sometimes he loses his voice and sometimes he even loses his temper. The film never shows us whether or not Michael Jackson had lost his mind. But it does show us that he never lost his talent.
It's a goddamn American tragedy. Let the poor sick bastard rest in peace.
Because the show was designed to be a nostalgic wrap-up of the highlights of [Jackson's] career, This Is It works very appropriately as a eulogy.
If you've got the slightest interest in Jackson's music, then this is the movie for you. If you want to learn the truth about the icon, then you're looking at the wrong film.
Audience Reviews for Michael Jackson's This Is It
A very well-edited behind-the-scenes clearly made for fans, showing nice rehearsals and backstage footage of Michael Jackson's concert that never was, but let's only hope this is not the ultimate film to be made about him.
After Michael Jackson's death i was addicted to knowing more about him and now he's my favorite singer, and when this movie was released in theaters, literally, everyone in my family went to go see it, and it blew all of us away, each and every music rendition Michael did from his hit songs (yet for some reason they didn't have bad, speed demon, will you be there, or black or white.) R.I.P. Michael Jackson we all miss you, your family, my family, everyone misses you, you were a true change to this world
This movie made me love Michael Jackson. We lost a truly great artist...This was a great look into what a perfectionist (in a good way) he was and how much effort he put into his work. And if you want to see some more great MIchael, watch his short film/music Video for Ghost. Very very entertaining. :)
