Incredible Lead Performance, not enough Movie behind it

Get On Up, a biopic of music legend James Brown had a lot of potential that is mostly unrealized. Mainly, Chadwick Boseman gives an Oscar worthy performance as Mr. Brown, but his talent is ill used. The storyline and editing are extremely choppy. The viewer is subjected to nearly constant flash backs and flash forwards without a unifying narrative, especially at the beginning. The film's main problem, however, was that James Brown would constantly breach the fourth wall, talking directly to the audience. I found this awkward and annoying, mainly because I couldn't understand why the writers called for this. This technique might work for comedies or more experimental drama, especially on the stage, but I don't see why it should be used in a biopic. All this aside, the concert scenes are incredible. Boseman sounds, sings, and dances to dazzling effect.

James Brown . . . Is That You?

Chadwick Boseman is James Brown as he recreates his evolution as a performer in exhaustive dimension and magnitude. The raw and charismatic excitement of Brown's presence are all here. This shows dedication and natural ability as Boseman reminds us of a heritage that music cannot deny and a story that needs to be told again and again as Brown's influence continues to mesmerize us when we hear him. The entire cast were soulful and talented. Viola Davis was very moving as Brown's mother who had abandoned him as a young child and we sense the deep sorrow and loss that Brown must have endured and helps us understand his determination and inner fire as he himself catches hold of his spiritual connection to source and allows his musical genius to take hold of him and us. The words and messages in the songs that Brown wrote may at times seem simplistic but true as he sings them with such knowing, a man who has experienced life in all its dimensions.

Amazing Performance

An eye opener for me. James Brown was one of the great innovators and leaders in American music and yet for many people he is a total unknown. Watching the movie one finds that his influence was immense on many of the musicians that followed him in all the many forms American music has evolved over the time, from rhythm and blues to rock and roll. It is fascinating look at the times from the post World War 2 period through the turmoil of the Civil Rights era. It is also a revelation about the music and the man. Amazing performance by Chadwick Boseman. The contrast between his portrayal of Jackie Robinson in 42 and this shows a great strength in acting ability. It is a truly Oscar worthy performance in and of itself. Hats off to Mick Jagger for producing this movie.
