    Musical Perfection.

    This is a review and a response to the last comment made by someone, This movie is great and a classic if you haven't seen it buy it. The quality and perfectionism in the music and movies he has made in my opinion are unsurpassed and I think it's very sad that the media are turning all the positive thoughts and feelings these music and movies portray and reversing them and throwing them back at him. Michael I know you'll never see this but even though the price of fame is high, I don't think it has ever been this high. Your music is great and will always be great, the media is garbage and should be reporting on things like how to help children in third-world countries instead of focusing on how many operations you may or may not have had or how many you said you had. To anybody that reads this, get this movie, it's a great movie and most importantly the music is of the very very highest caliber. Take it easy, Tight

    How come Martin Bashir didn't mention this masterpiece?

    The musical genius himself has created a musical masterpiece on celluloid, just as he has done throughout his career. Starting with a exquisite montage of hits from the hugely successful Bad album, the plot then thickens while retaining its musical superiority to the last with his far superior version of the Beatles' Come Together. The highlight of the film is the Smooth Criminal performance in the old style bar. Unsurpassed choreography, great song, great moves, with the legend himself on top form. A must see film for all lovers of great music. forget what the Rats in the media say about this man, even Elvis couldn't touch him.

    a child molester, a talented performer.

    Micheal Jackson, on a strictly occupational level, is an extremely talented and creative musician. If certain aspects of his private life are ignored, its much easier to enjoy his music, which I certainly do. I've been watching moonwalker regularly since it came out, and its truly a good title. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to send me correspondence at the email address Ive provided to you.

    With MJ, its always above and beyond

    5 stars? is that all I can give? Moonwalker is one of the most creative, magical, and inspiring music films I've ever seen. Ok, so yeah, I'm an MJ fan. He's like God to me so my rating is quite a bit indoctrinated by that. But i think if one were to look at this film from a purely unbiased critic perspective, it would still get some pretty high marks for creativity and graphics/animation/special effects. We will always love you Michael!!!!

    best dance movie I've seen

    the way that michael moves in this movie is just unbelievalbe. the car that he turns into is awesome to, but thing I like the most is that he is fighting against drugs. this movie also shows how he really cares for children.

    Michael Jackson is the true King of Pop now and forever!!

    This Tape is great, anything he does is great. but this video is something every MJ fan needs to see. It shows how creative Michael can be, it pushes the limits. It is actually kind of weird, but you'll find out only a genius like MJ could do something so unique. To all the fans out there, remember MJ is the best of the best now and forever. Never give up on Michael he needs us.
