Wow what a great documentary on Michael Jacksons life. It includes everything about him - how he lived in his younger years, his time at Motown, his solo career, the Jackson 5, the accusations made against him, his death n long interviews about him.

I had just wished that they had added a few music videos in the blu-ray edition as some extras such as Billie Jean n Thriller.

Ne ways, if your interested in documentaries, then this is really a great one to watch.

 Good Blu ray

I didn't expect this to be as good as it was,I wish there had of been a bit more footage of M.J. but over all it was interesting and good to hear comments from his mum,friends and motown legends.

 Setting the record straight

This is an excellent title that goes in great detail from the talent competition the Jackson 5 won to propel them to motown right up to the conrad murray incident. Some nice stories about Micheal but more importantly than anything it sets the story straight about the child allogations, vitiligo his skin colouring disease, the plastic surgery, his sexuality and more. In the way of performances there are breif highlights of jacksons performances and history concert footage but lot a lot as this is a start to finish story about michael and not his greatest performances etc. It might have gained a 5th star if janet jackson and diana ross had been part of the project, but it did have whitney houston, david guest, his mother catherine and brothers, his manager before he died frank dileo and others. I feel this is a very important title to set the record straight for those who don't know or are not sure of the real Michael. The real Michael Jackson changed pop music forever and was the greatest entertainer the world had ever seen and was a humanitarian - this man gave more to charity than anyone as per the guiness book of records and mostly annonomously and really cared about making the world a better place, especailly for children all over the world.

As others have said, this is a really good documentary about Michael, the person behind the stage. Dont expect to see any music videos or even Michael himself talking. Its all about the people around him, his friends and family, about how they saw him and how he became the greatest artist in the world.

One thing that i did not like about this documentary, is the fact that when people came out who where being interviewed, their names were not being displayed, so unless you know everyone in the Michael Jackson circle you're going to be scratching your head a lot, figuring out who is who..

This really is for true Michael Fans. Id love to see a bluray version of all his music videos though...now that would be 5/5!
