Not the best Doc out there on MJ, but it has some rare unedited footage that is not found anywhere else. Worth seeing at least once.
Save your money

"i didnt hate this, but it was not worth the money spent. the chronological order of the video footage rarely matched what was spoken about in the narrative. plus, much of the same footage was repeated over and over. i doubt i'll give it a second look, and actually havent even watched it in its entirety yet, because the narrator was annoying. i got carried away buying all that i could with michal in it, but i recommend saving your money on this one. unless it goes on clearance for $1.00."
Sufficient emphasis on phiranthropic achievements. Rationall

"1 Chronicle overview of MJ's career with an objective and rational narration.
2 Bonus section includes the memorial service, philanthropic achievements, illustrations of how media treated MJ, and the history of MJ making global phenomenon.
3 No performance or music included.
4 Some press conferences included.
5 Supportive voices from Quincy Jones, Berry Gordy, MJ's former publicist, MJ's photographer, Mother Katherine, etc.
I recommend this video to anyone in any standpoint, from his fans to those who are anti-Jackson. Not many revelations, but what is needed for MJ's life is the truth and facts simply being told. That is enough to show who he really was.
For devoted fans, you do not need this for yourself. However, this could be used as a video for you to introduce real MJ to your friends who are currently anti-Jackson or are not well-informed of him. Since this is rationally and objectively narrated, it helps anyone gain fairer view about him apart from the media's fabricated stories. The mysterious flood of new information after Jackson's death have already illustrated that the media had long been fragmented the facts and reported only sensational, mostly anti-Jackson information. Now is the time for the truth to be spread.
Also, a combination of this video and MJ's performance video would be a great answer to your children's question who Michael was. A safe-for-children video.
This video is a happy medium. Supportive to MJ, but no too much screaming fans. Just facts, which I believe is the best. The only thing I think is missing in this video is Atty. Thomas Mesereau's convincing comment on MJ's trial."
Love seeing MJ up close and hearing his voice

"This disc is great for seeing MJ up close and hearing his voice during his speech at Oxford and his visit with Mandela, for example. The picture quality is very, very good and devoted fans will get a really clear view of MJ, though it's usually a quick view. I've purchased almost every other positive thing about MJ. I'm glad I finally bought this. Micheal is presented lovingly and respectfully ... hence, "Devotion..." My thanks to the producers."
