Amazing and breathtaking.
When this came out, I thought it was a ghoulish attempt to cash in on Michael Jackson's death. I was wrong. A longtime collaborator of Michael Jackson's, director Kenny Ortega's tremendous respect for Michael's artistic sensibility is obvious. And it's not just Kenny. Everyone from the dancers, to the musicians, to the production crew - everyone is clearly thrilled to be working on this project.
The concert was to include all his biggest hits: Jackson Five stuff, Thriller, Bilie Jean, Smooth Criminal, all of it. You will be hard-pressed not to sing along while watching.
The dancing, including from 50-year-old Michael himself, is just SUPERB.
Highly, highly recommended.

"I know this film was very popular and I'm sure that many MJ die-hards loved it but, what about the rest of us?
I'm not a huge MJ fan but, I dont necessarily believe that fandom is required in order to enjoy a concert movie like this. Sadly, this is one that I simply didn't enjoy despite enjoying much of MJ's music.
The film seemed to drag at times and at many points I felt like watching it was more like a chore. And to be perfectly honest, I'm a little upset that I didn't enjoy it. It's a film I really wanted to like."
