Probably should watch "Leaving Neverland" before this.

This is an incredible documentary that gives you a look into the behind the scenes work that went in to a Michael Jackson concert. The watcher sees Michael rehearsing for the last concert that he had booked before his unfortunate death. You can see just how much work he truly put in to his craft and you can see just how much he cared about what he did. He was a remarkable man and you can see this clearly in the documentary. This film is definitely worth the watch to see the hard work and dedication that Michael Jackson, king of pop, put in to his craft.

Nay sayer's know where to go.
MJ... will forever be in my heart which is another reason why I had to purchased this DVD as soon as it came out. Totally enjoyed it.

I am a Michael Jackson fan of 66, a Dine' filmmaker. Always loved his music. I've made documentaries and other types of videos, experimental dramas, dance videos. I viewed the dvd 2x. Liked this documentary. It is sad that he was not able to complete this tour. Whenever I met someone who didn't like him, I always had to defend him. Such a great dancer and singer and song writer. He hired great guitar players, dancers and singers to help him out. I imagine he was under tremendous stress to get this tour done.

Not at all what I expected. I always enjoyed his music but was fully prepared to dislike the person behind it. Years of publicity, I had formed an opinion that now I know was completely false. Depicted as a predatory creature by the media, I am sad that I believed what I heard and read.

Michael Jackson was the antithesis of public opinion. He was a (amazingly hard working), talented beyond belief, human with compassion for the planet and all its inhabitants. I am so grateful to those who but together this window into the best of the best.

Terrible, terrible attempt at making a documentary. The movie and the special features are basically the same thing! There was a note they were filming everything so Micheal would have a record of what was done.
They should have placed a camera
1/2 to 3/4 of the way back so it gave a side to side picture of rendering of the graphics and special effects.
This also would have giver them points of reference every day to improve the visuals.

I believe this film to be too long and drawn out. Didn't make it to the end. I like Michael Jackson, but found this movie quite boring

I am not a fan of Michael Jackson, but I really like this movie. I watch it all the way without skipping any scene at all. The shooting, the sound, the arrangement are excellent. I wish Michael had lived a bit longer, or at least completed the tour. The concert is amazing that I can tell by watching the rehearsal.

I think this movie shows what could have been from the King of Pop. All that hard work he put into it, and he never got to perform any of it. It's really sad and he'll always be known as a genius.
