      Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times Nelson George eschews gimmicks and relying on archival audio and film footage... Rated: 3/4 Dec 2, 2023 Full Review Brian Lowry CNN.com “Thriller 40” consciously and effectively brings the focus back to the music and the thrills he delivered as a performer. As for the ability to keep the rest of his story at bay while watching it, that will likely depend on one’s level of Jackson fandom. Dec 1, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Tobruk M A really insightful documentary. Why are there not more official reviews? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Daryn G Loved it. Showed exactly why Michael Jackson is the gold standard for an entertainer. It highlighted what he did for music after this amazing album, it showed the beginning of his fall, and, ultimately, showed why this is the greatest album of all time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/12/23 Full Review Eye C Amazing what MJ accomplished, such an interesting story, simply the best the king. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/11/23 Full Review Robert T Amazing to look back at this truly phenomenal once in a century performer's process and legacy. It made me sad that he's been gone for 15 months years now Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/09/23 Full Review Joey T It felt more like they were talking more about the hype in this. The rare footage was the only thing that was good about this. The rest was based on mostly info we already knew, the pacing was all over the place and songs were not broken down enough. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/08/23 Full Review Wesley P It was okay, there were a few fan made inconsistencies of his greatness but over all okay, I actually did learn something when talking about his dancing that he had a few signature moves and just moved his feet and walked around to give illusion of dancing, I actually liked hearing that as I've always thought he didn't dance great he just did a lot of posing, walking about and pointing which was stated, he could of been a great ballroom voguer.. But overall good watch to take you back to your childhood/teens. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
