Michael Jackson's This Is It

Rated PG 111 minutes 2009

It’s no secret that Michael Jackson owed a lot of money when he died—and lots of people wanted to get paid. Chief among those were the folks putting together Jackson’s London-based concert series, a 50-date engagement dubbed “This Is It!” It was supposed to be a big payday for creditors, as well as Jackson’s triumphant artistic return. In the end, “This Is It!” went from being a spectacular live show to the bizarre film in theaters now. This is a rushed cash-in, largely featuring footage of Jackson rehearsing that’s been cobbled together to create the strangest of concert films. We see Jackson working with director Kenny Ortega to craft a show featuring all of the big Jackson hits and a massive multimedia presentation, including 3-D screens and multilevel staging. It would’ve probably been a great concert, but this movie is something that MJ never would’ve wanted you to see.
