3.0 out of 5 stars Rent, rather than buy, 27 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Michael Jackson: The Life Of An Icon - Double Play (Blu-ray + DVD) (Blu-ray)
There is no doubt that this documentary is well worth watching, featuring interviews with members of the Jackson family (Tito, Rebbie, mother Katherine) fellow performers, songwriters and friends of Michael. The early years of Michael's life and rise to fame in the Jackson 5 is covered in detail. Ironically for a documentary on the King of Pop, however, his musical achievements unfortunately take second place to lengthy discussions about the child molestation allegations & Michael's drug addiction. 'Thriller' is skirted over and there is no mention at all of Bad, Dangerous, HIStory or Invincible. This documentary could have been so much better if full length performance clips were included. All we get are fleeting clips of Jackson 5 TV performances. I would recommend renting rather than buying, You only need watch it once.

The Blu Ray picture is better than the DVD, but it is not a night and day difference, & with very little music included to benefit from HD audio, you are better off buying the cheaper standalone DVD version.
