Even though This Is It is not really a movie for kids, and some of you may not want to or be allowed to watch it, we thought we'd review it for you because so many kids out there love Michael Jackson.

Kidzworld saw This Is It - the new movie about Michael Jackson's last days - in theatres. Even though it's not really a movie for kids, and some of you may not want to or be allowed to watch it, we thought we'd review it for you because so many kids out there love Michael Jackson.


Musical Movie

This Is It is a concert film that's actually a rehearsal film - it is made up of footage that was taped while The King Of Pop was rehearsing for his latest concert tour.


The rehearsal took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California - the inside of the center, up on the big stage, is where most of This Is It, the movie, takes place.


As we watched Michael Jackson prepping for his upcoming 50-night show (which was supposed to happen in London, England, at the O2 Arena, we felt sorta funny. It always feels odd when you watch someone on the big screen who you know has already passed away. It was kind of a sad thought.


In fact, MJ passed away on June 25, 2009. He hadn't been planning on making this rehearsal footage into a feature film - he had only asked for himself to be taped practicing his songs and moves on stage for his own personal archive. That kind of makes this movie, well, not a movie. It's just different scenes put together - the scenes don't even necessarily fit together, like the story in a real movie do.


Super Songs

Even though it really wasn't like watching a REAL movie, which has a beginning, a middle and an end, This Is It was great because of the songs and the music. If you see the film you'll get to see Michael Jackson perform hits like Wanna Be Starting Something, Thriller, Beat It, The Way You Make Me Feel and even some classic Jackson 5 songs like I Want You Back and I'll Be There.

Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
