The legend lives onBy a customer from London , 22 Sep 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]The last chance to see the king in action. I have always known Michael the best in his concerts. I could see how much he loved the stage and how much he enjoyed entertaining the audience. Despite all the hard times he went through to create a masterpiece, he enjoyed it, because he was creating.
Don't miss it. Watch it and certainly watch his other concert on DVD, the Dangerous Tour in Bucharest. He is THE perfectionist!

Performing and Directing - on top of his game!By PaulHappy (151 reviews) , 01 Feb 2013I have admired Michael Jackson as a performer but in watching this I was so impressed with his involvement in all aspects of the production of his concerts. He is so on top of his music and knows exactly what he wants from himself and the other performers. Here he was as much the Director as Kenny Ortega was. Michael was a true talent - sometimes in the music world today people are over hyped and their hype is greater than their talent - but with Michael his talent shines through - a true music star! If there was a downside to 'This is it' it is the sycophantic behaviour of everyone towards Michael - I do believe in respect towards others - but when it become sycophantic as it was here, then it becomes really cringe-worthy. Other than that I really enjoyed it.

Really good!By 02sholmes (12 reviews) , 29 Nov 2012I had been to see this film in the cinema and absolutely loved it. The way it has been put together is well thought out and to see the man in action is amazing. I had alsways liked Michael Jackson, this just made me love him more!
pop legendBy Em1981 (133 reviews) from London , 17 Sep 2012Whatever anyone thinks of Michael Jackson you can not deny this man was extremely talented and gifted. This was a little odd to watch. It was good but truthfully it didnt blow me away. I have seen better videos of his work.
The entertainerBy Gembarama (2 reviews) , 08 Jun 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideExcellent insight even thought a sad outcome. I was a fan as a kid and was reminded what a showman he was.
His voice was as good as at the height of his career, his moves very close too. And to see how much of his shows are his vision, the music, choreography etc compared to the 'stars' of today who have everything worked out for them.
Great film. Documentary type but enjoyable and can groove along with the music :-)
Even for 'NOT' fans - this is well worth a watchBy Plumereine (2 reviews) , 19 May 2012Even for 'NOT' fans this is well worth a watch as it highlights Jackson's professionalism and the sensitive & very vulnerable character that he, sadly, was. It gives a previously unknown perspective of Michael Jackson through the rehearsals & build up to his revival/final (didn't happen ) tour.
