An average movie

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since it seems to have a decent reputation, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, I have to admit that I have never been a huge fan of Prince above all because his style was just too over-the-top for my taste but, while watching this flick, I suddenly became aware that I knew only a couple of his songs. Well, in this movie, he definitely displayed so major skills and the music was really good, especially the title song. Still, was it really a good movie? Not really, I'm afraid. I mean, in the same genre, it actually had more or less a plot which was more than you can say about 'Moonwalker' from Michael Jackson and, at least, it wasn't exactly dealing with a rising star who would finally reach some mainstream success but it was about a musician who actually didn't really care much about fame or success which was rather refreshing. However, even though it was slightly more original, the whole thing was still too random and generic to become really remarkable. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, I actually think it is one of the better movies in this genre and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Prince.
