      Audience Reviews for One Direction: This Is Us

      • Sep 08, 2013
        Though definitely not worth the blood-curling screams of girly adulation comprising much of this musical pop bio, the sing-songy This is Us passes as entertainment purely on the merits of its, well, Direction. Of course, the movie wasn't necessarily produced for the kind of booze-addled curmudgeonly film critic in his late '30s whose next concert is Merle Haggard. The moviegoers who're not Boy Band enthusiasts and fanclub card-holders, however, must keep this in mind: One Direction's musical travelogue follows in the small footsteps of such recent teen pop concert films as The Jonas Brothers Concert Experience, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, and Katy Perry: Part of Me, inflated cinematic experiences with the quality and entertainment value of a VH1 Special minus 3D technology. Still, as one broadcaster notes, "Not even the Beatles achieved such trans-Atlantic success so soon in their careers." Thanks to a 90-minute running time, a few welcome codas and zippy visuals, the 'why' behind this statement gets hammered home whether you want to hear it or not. This PG-rated concert film and documentary chronicles the meteoric rise to fame of pop band One Direction, from their humble hometown beginnings to performing at London's famed O2 Arena. Morgan Spurlock, the whipsmart documentarian behind Super Size Me, imbues the behind-the-scenes story of these latter-day New Kids on the Block with visual tics such as animated lyrics and tender telling family moments allowed to run rather than cut short to respect a music video watcher's attention span. He keeps this piece of caramel popcorn from completely becoming No Direction. Bottom line: A Hard Day's Blight.
