  • 5 stars This movie is amazing. It is just how things happened and shocking info on James Brown. It will have you laughing. An all around great film. I saw it at the theater.
  • 5 stars Excellent Actor good music
  • 2 stars Chadwick Boseman's performance was Oscar-worthy. However, the movie lacked any continuity and cohesion. I blame the director for screwing up a good story to tell.
  • I liked it! Glad he got to be a superstar after his poor upbringing. The actor that played James Brown was convincing and is a really good dancer
  • Great music, fine acting, serious drama -- The film gives a quick overview on the music business back in the day when James Brown launched his career as a soul funk band leader. You'll like this movie if you want to see good acting and energetic stage performances rolled into a single movie.
  • 5 stars Excellent Acting, and Great Music!
  • Excellent performance for Chadwick Boseman! I'd see it again on DVD.
  • 5 stars A remarkable movie. Boseman was excellent -- and I've never even been a James Brown fan
  • Loved the Jennifer Love Hewitt cameo!
  • 5 stars Great movie on James Brown! Loved it!
