This is It tells about preparations of the "last" tour of Michael Jackson and his rehersals. The footage of the document is new material never been shown before to the world.
I have never been particular MJ fan nor listen his music. But because he is some sort of cornerstone of music history you gotta know him even if your IQ is less than average. So I know most of the songs by MJ, who doesn't?
It was great to see how the show would have been. I loved especially how the stage and props were made for Thriller and Smooth Criminal. However, because MJ does not have "real" meaning for me I don't understand how I should somehow be moved while watching this document... Also the document does not tell much about MJ's personality or character. Watch Oprah's review of MJ instead of this.
Of course the movie is some sort of way to remember Jacko, and it's such a shame the tour never took place considering the fact how much effort, money and love were put in to it. The movie itself didn't affect me practically any ways though, and the only reason is because I only thing MJ was only a great guy and historical milestone.
I know that Michael Jackson was talented as hell and he has been developing the world music in its current form. He is in so many ways the great historical human being, but not a god. That's why I don't understand why so many people think him as god. For real.
Also really confusing thing is that this document would not be such a huge success and would not cause such a great hype without Jacko being dead. This is why I want to review the movie as it was published before MJ's death: boring, meaningless raw video footage of Michael Jackson. Nothing more. 2/5
