MJ Movie -This is it

Where “This Is It” soars, is as a dance movie; to watch Michael Jackson move is to witness one of the great entertainers of the modern age. Inheriting the legacy of giants like Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Sammy Davis Jr. and Fred Astaire — and adding his own spin — Jackson’s dance routines here are breathtaking. Emotional interviews with his backup dancers, who have come from around the world for the rare opportunity to perform alongside their idol, reveal the influence that the King of Pop (who choreographed the show in collaboration with Travis Payne) has had on subsequent generations of performers.
