Excellent

Excellent Classic Movie and very nice Debossed Steelbook with interior art! Good job Zavvi!

ohhhh

must for any fan of the godfather of soul or indeed any music deals with his life story he wasn't a saint and does not show him as one; but he could sing and stage a show

Get on up limited edition steelbook

My review is not that the steelbook is sick but the film is absolutely great I love the music and everything it's the best.

Great DVD, average film

While broadly entertaining, this film is, in places, wildly inaccurate. The opening sequence, for instance - in which James Brown shoots a hole in the ceiling during a meeting - is fictitious. There are some nice performances here, but the film does have a bit of a budget/made-for-TV feel about it. I had hoped it would rival the Ray Charles biopic 'Ray', but it came off a bit more like 'Cadillac Records'; tending towards slightly cartoonish impersonations, and with few of the wigs or costumes or period settings looking quite right. Chadwick Boseman does a fair job of mimicking Brown's dancing - although of course he is nowhere close to the real deal - but the vocals are all lip-synched, which is a bit off-putting and ultimately makes Brown - one of the most supernaturally gifted live performers of all time - look a bit naff. Thus, one is left asking the question; What is the point of making a biopic about one of the greatest performers in history, if the result is to leave people wondering why he was supposedly so brilliant? This is a nicely packaged DVD with some good special features, which elevated my review from three stars to four. However, for anybody wanting to understand James Brown's brilliance as a performer and/or his importance as a black figure and civil rights leader - something the biopic doesn't do a great job of depicting - I would recommend buying The Night James Brown Saved Boston instead, which is a stunning and exhilarating documentary, crammed with phenomenal performance and interview footage.

great film

A great and honest insight in to the man and the life struggles to achieve greatness through adversity with single minded determination and talent. A very easy watch and kept me gripped all the way through the film. Really good performances and believable portrayal of James Brown. A must buy.
