Michael Jackson's This Is It Movie Review

Michael Jackson's This Is It Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Oct 30, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

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.

She is totally a million dollar find. Can you do any of those things? Anyway she's already won and words like these won't change that, or stop her from lighting the sky, because stars are dull compared to her. And I'm sure she's already dealt with haters and probably won't even read your post. Anyway my dad says that everyone who made it to the finals have futures ahead of them, and will earn millions of dollars and probably have shows in Vegas and everywhere else anyway. By the way, no, I don't only like her because she won. I was rooting for her from the first (well okay, maybe not first, but definitely second) act. We all have our fandoms to defend, and girl, what you said was harsh.
