One Direction: This Is Us Reviews

This Is Us does what it needs to do for its target audience. But anyone looking for actual substance or insight will be disappointed and maybe even a little bored with its repetitive nature.

The fact is that they are as criminally cute as a basketful of puppies. This Is Us manages to frame that boyish appeal astutely ...

It might not make you a fan of One Direction, but it will certainly make you understand the group, which is the job of any good documentary.

"One Direction: This Is Us" leaves the larger questions it points toward teasingly unexplored, making the film little more than a harmless keepsake.

With a group so evidently versed in the visuals of rock history, it's a shame that a filmmaker wasn't hired who would pay homage to classic pop films instead of offering a satisfactory paid promotional.

Adoring hordes will no doubt devour shots of shirtless head hunk Harry, simmering "quiet one" Zayn and the others goofing on their minders, while nonacolytes will giggle over the Jackass-lite pranks that seem to fill most of their downtime.

It's not that Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson aren't charming and likable. The problem is that the movie offers no way of differentiating them beyond their hairstyles.

For the most part, the movie embraces harmless fun, which can be enjoyable for the audience members, whether they're 1D fans or not.

An airbrushed image of celibate wholesomeness without groupies or even girlfriends, and where evidently nothing stronger than milk passes these young men's lips.

No personal revelations surface in "This Is Us." Also, no narrative, no conflict - no differentiation between band members, even, besides the designation of dark-eyed Zayn as "the mysterious one" (he likes to paint).

For audiences willing to spend some time basking in the glow of the teen sensation of the moment, this docu-music-infomercial is as palatable, and as disposable, as the group's hit songs.

This doesn't set out to be a movie that gets at anything more than making the One Direction guys look adorable, if maybe just a little darker than your average boy-band bunch.

The stage footage, from Madison Square Garden to Mexico City's stadium, has some snazzy allure. The 3-D effects make fans feel like they could reach out and squeeze them.

Essentially a slick, airbrushed promo reel of a bunch of genuinely sweet superstars who can't believe their dumb luck. That's charming. But it's also a little boring. What it's most definitely not is a documentary.
