Rating: 4/5 -- Director Tate Taylor's electrifying, energised portrait of James Brown rapidly takes a left turn away from formula via the musician's colourful brush with rock bottom.

Rating: 2.5/5 -- If it weren't for the magnetic, utterly watchable central performance from a prolific Chadwick Boseman, Get On Up would be a miserly, unapologetically sterilized biopic. Full Review
Aug 30, 2019
Rating: 2/5 -- There's more drama in one track from Live at the Apollo than 139 long minutes of this. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Whilst issues with exposition and pacing threaten to deflate Get on Up, captivating performances and electrifying music set-pieces manage to pump up the funk. Full Review

Rating: B -- [Get On Up] is also consistently entertaining and intermittently moving, but by the end, we realize that it hasn't been all that illuminating. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- The music is -- as you'd expect -- sensational, and the production design elegantly conveys the radical shifts in period.

Rating: 4/5 -- The film tapers off in its final reel, ending on a conventional note -- but not before it has done its best to capture its subject in all his manic and absurd glory. Full Review

Product Description:

Chadwick Boseman stars as James Brown in this biopic from Universal Studios and director Tate Taylor (THE HELP). From a childhood spent in poverty to his emergence as the Godfather of Soul, Brown's incredible life story is one of talent, determination, and perseverance. Brian Grazer, Mick Jagger, Victoria Pearman, and Erica Huggins produce a film co-penned in part by Jez and John-Henry Butterworth (FAIR GAME).
