Worthy of its subject and the dollars of music and film fans alike. As roundly entertaining as any biopic in recent memory.

Somewhat sanitized and over-directed biopic saved by Boseman's electric performance.

Boseman is the highlight, of course, and Taylor is smart to keep his leading man front-and-center in every, single scene.

More often, the film skates along the surface of Brown's contradictory character. Now if it skated like Brown's dance moves glided onstage, that really would have been something.

Musically explosive, emotionally powerful and flat-out funky, Get on Up tells the outrageous life story of James Brown with a quirky brilliance worthy of the man at its center.

In Boseman's hands - and his feet, and his entire body, for that matter - he demands and earns our attention.

The storytelling is mostly linear, with some confusing back-and-forth in the chronology, and it's a long slog. The Brown who emerges from this film has a monstrous ego to go with his monster talent.
