“This Is It” Movie One Star Review In New York Post

Lou Lemenick, New York Post, dropped a bomb on the anticipated (how eagerly is another question entirely) MJ rehearsal motion picture. In yesterday’s post Leminick wrote “i(“This Is It”) is sadly — and reprehensively, if you ask me — the movie equivalent to the National Enquirer’s infamous post-mortem shot of Elvis Presley”
Heavy duty.
While the excellent film critic doesn’t mention the music he does discuss the dancing, which seemed fine in the minutes I’ve viewed so far: “Jackson moves stiffly and lethargically, suggesting even a shadow of his former self”.
He concludes: “Could Jackson and his collaborators have whipped this show into shape for a triumphant comeback in London if he had lived? The evidence here says no, but we’ll never really know.”
Rotten Tomatoes reports the critics gave the movie an 80% approval rating. I will have my review here on Saturday.
