Get on Up Movie Reviews
User reviews on Get on Up
This was a wonderful film and I highly recommend seeing it on the big screen, you will not regret that decision. The film is based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. The film is provocatively structured and it is rich and not formula-bounded, I had the greatest time watching this movie.
This movie is GREAT. It gave me a new perspective about the man named James Brown. I grew up listening, singing and dancing to his music. The acting was superb. When I saw the previews, I didn't understand why Chadwick Boseman was chosen for the role, but now I understand why, he was Fabulous!!!!!!! I will see this movie again or buy it on DVD.
Chadwick Boseman totally rocks it as james brown. It is a little disjointed in a couple of places, and the story may not be 100% accurate, but it is still alot of fun.
