Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
There's a Paul Simon lyric that says, "every generation throws a hero up the pop chart," but in 2013, when social media holds sway over the fickle tastes of the public, the idea of pop stars lasting a whole generation seems charmingly old-fashioned. Or as Chris Rock once said about making it in hip-hop, "here today, gone today." Into this quickly evolving scene comes One Direction: This Is Us, a 3D concert film/group biography of the British boy band who became international superstars on the strength of their smash-hit song, "What Makes You Beautiful."" The five guys -- Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson -- are all presented as likable young lads, so much so that they practically beg comparisons to the showbiz-savvy early Beatles. Though their personalities aren't outsized enough to easily categorize all of them, it's apparent that Zayn is the mysterious loner who loves his family and Harry is the genuinely funny smart-ass. And to put it in Fab Four terms, they're each the cute one. Director Morgan Spurlock dutifully presents the band's meteoric rise to fame: They each tried out for the 2010 version of Britain's The X Factor individually, but the show's creator and kingpin Simon Cowell (who also serves as a producer for this movie) suggested they join forces. Adopting the name One Direction, they proved so successful that, even though they finished third on the show, Cowell signed them to a contract more lucrative than the one they'd have gotten had they won. They quickly became the hottest act in Britain, and from there it just took a smash single to turn them into megastars with their faces plastered on T-shirts, notebooks, and every other piece of merchandise a young girl could possibly want. That full-throttle marketing is inescapable, especially when you realize that director Spurlock (who knows more than a little about self-promotion) and Cowell (a recognized master at idol making) have essentially used this project as a further means to sell the band to its loyal, rabid audience. There's nothing inherently wrong with that approach, and in the hands of seasoned veterans like Spurlock and Cowell, the individual members of One Direction are nothing less than adorably charming. They work hard, they play hard, they miss their moms, they have one another's backs, and none of them are shown succumbing to fame's darker pitfalls. Of course, the filmmakers save "What Makes You Beautiful" for the end, and during the performance, one of the guys pulls downs Harry's pants (he's wearing underwear) in the middle of his solo, sending an arena of screaming ladies into an avalanche of hysteria. It's a genuinely funny moment that underscores perfectly how the film wants to brand these fellows. Namely, they know that what they are doing is ridiculous, they feel lucky to have their celebrity, and they're thankful for their fans and enjoy giving them what they want. This Is Us is an entertaining and effective feature-length commercial.
