Movie Reviews

What a Show!
J. M. Zuurbier | Canada | 01/25/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Janet's VELVET ROPE tour began in Europe in April 1998, and lasted well into the fall of 1998, hitting various countries to support her album THE VELVET ROPE. THE VELVET ROPE is Janet's most personal offering, with songs about acceptance, personal pain, etc. The tour is a must see. Janet takes on various personas through different costume changes, that symbolize her songs. Not only does she sing songs from THE VELVET ROPE, but she digs back, all the way to CONTROL and RHYTHM NATION 1814 with songs the fans have always loved. As tiring as the tour is, this party doesn't stop, as she entertains through and through during this concert. There is a charisma with Janet on stage, between her and the fans, her and the dancers, anyone she wants to make contact with. This is a show for the fans, and a show that doesn't disapoint. Highlight performances include the Control Medley, the Escapade Medley, If, Rhythm Nation, What About, and more. Give this one a whirl if you want to be entertained!"
Very fun, very energetic...

"but I gave it a 4 because of the audience. I would have assumed that after it being aired live on HBO and set for VHS and DVD availability-that they would drown out the crowd more, particularly the first song "Velvet Rope" and "If". It got better as the show went on, except in some parts, where again they drowned Janet's voice by the audience.Other than that, as I said very fun and energetic. All the great hits, fantastic stage sets and awesome costume changes. Especially the Escapade Medley stage set and costumes.Those who like Janet and those who like concerts on the screen, I recommend it."
Her first name ain't "Baby"!

"It's JANET! And what a DVD this is. Killer sets, great dance numbers (my only complaint is that not all the dancers can be seen all the time, and they're working as hard as Miss Janet. I think more on-screen time next go 'round should be afforded to these talented, energetic individuals.) And Janet sings her heart out - all your favorites, from "If" to a medley of "Control" hits, to a razor-edged rendition of "Black Cat". The emotional song, however, is "What About", with dancers in the background enacting various scenes of violence between men and women, with men being the aggressors. A powerful song, "What About" only speaks more eloquently with its visuals. This DVD is never leaving my collection! Can't wait for Janet's new CD!(And there is one awesome seduction number in the song "Rope Burn". You know that guy onstage will never forget THAT experience! Turn that track on when you curl up with your honey one evening!)"
The One and Only... MS. JACKSON (If you are nasty)

"This DVD is one of my all time favorite musical DVDs. Miss Jackson proves why she is the highest paid singer in the industry. With a combination of costume changes, great choreography, Janet's greatest hits, and a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden, the DVD makes for an excellent night of entertainment. I only regret that I was not able to see the concert in person here in my home town due to a cancelation of the concert;however, the DVD is definately a suitable substitute. I highly recommend this DVD to any fans of Janet, lovers of music, and owners of quality DVDs."
