    Absolutely horrible, provides 0 proof of the alleged abuse, wade and James are proven perjurers and liars.

    It is simply sad that so many people blindly give the movie half a star, probably without even watching it... It makes you feel sad about these people being brainwashed by pop colture, ignoring the faulty human side of those pop icons they so blindly adore and support. The documentary is excellent in every way and should be seen by more people and more rationaly!

    Its very well made, but its a documentary of stories, he may of f****d those boys, though the evidence and the legal process MJ went through would suggest he didn't, but nothings concrete, some people tell the truth and some lie, the mans not alive to defend himself. this is desperate cancel culture vomit.

    10/10, A++, Go see it. The amount of delusion among MJ-fans this documentary has brought light upon is disturbing to say the least.

    Horrible documentary. Just look at the difference between the audience score vs. these journalists who cannot do research if their lives depended on it. The mostly liberal journalists are just showing the downfall of American media. This piece of propaganda from HBO features two obvious liars with false allegations. Michael Jackson was innocent. He was truly one of the greatest men to grace the Earth. He was a beautiful soul. He was talented. He was extremely giving, nice, and humble. These journalists should be ashamed of themselves. Truth wins out, as we see a year + later MJ's legacy is still intact. People of all ages, sexualities, races, nationalities, gender, and religions LOVE him. His music is still played. That will never be taken away. We love you Michael. You will always be celebrated.

    This is easily the worst TV show of 2019. How did critics gave it a high score. It's baffling that 2019 was a bad year for TV.

    I saw a mother watching videos of her child with a man who according to her is a molester, and she thought it was so endearing... I saw an interview with two men who were interviews for days and all these takes were made to look as one interview while they clearly weren't. So it wasn't an interview it was a directed monologue that probably was coached in the used wording, maybe even scripted. I saw a guy who was molested and kept rings he's gotten from him molester and even apparently bought a box for them? I saw the same guy who thought about Jackson getting movies before they come out and give a smile like 'that was cool'. So I saw reason to look for another side of the story to judge the truthfulness of the film and I find the other side stronger. Apparently they adjusted the film for the English audience by removing 45 minutes?

    I'm a poker player & I believe everything that was on that film!This needed to be told.

    This is as much a documentary as "Triumph of the Will" is a documentary. This is will go on history as a propaganda fake news docuLIEtary to demonize a 14-charge vindicated innocent human being because of Elite Jealousy, CLICKBAIT Fake News circus and MONEY and fame off a dead man.

    I am horrified to see how the mass media (and general public) fully embraced this movie, without an ounce of skepticism. This movie, besides being boring, is very well crafted and extremely manipulative but doesn't qualify as a documentary. Following its release, most made their minds up about Michael Jackson's guilt by hearsay, without even watching the movie itself. Do we need to remind everyone that the man was proven innocent of child molesting charges after 2 trials and intense scrutiny (Tabloids, law, FBI). The allegations made against him now are extremely grave and he deserves the presumption of innocence. If you care about facts, just check the wikipedia pages about the 1993 allegations and the 2005 trial, and see for yourself the kind of tissues of lies some people are willing to fabricate to obtain money. But I guess it takes time, and no one really cares enough to go through the trouble, especially now he is dead. If anything, it seems to me that Jackson was guilty of very poor judgement especially when it came to people, extreme naiveté, questionable taste at the end of his life and eccentricity due to the lack of normalcy in his upbringing and lifestyle. And that made it difficult for people to empathize with him, a perfect target. L
