Rating: 2/5 -- There's more drama in one track from Live at the Apollo than 139 long minutes of this. Full Review

[Chadwick Boseman] gets the mannerisms right, and builds a volatile character who's opportunistic, frightening and vulnerable, like a funky Klaus Kinski. Full Review

Chadwick Boseman gives a startling and galvanic performance. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Boseman's performance comes bounding in with such wicked attitude, and such a showman's determination to give us a good time, it's hard to harbour regrets for long. Full Review
Daily Telegraph (UK)
Nov 20, 2014
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.
Times (UK)
Nov 21, 2014
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
Independent (UK)
Nov 21, 2014
Rating: 4/5 -- [T]his show ultimately belongs to [Chadwick] Boseman. He captures the groove, soul and even [James] Brown's incompressible speech and his performance is electric. 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).
