Because Michael Jackson's estate didn't permit the use of any rights to music, video etc. this movie doesn't not feature any original Michael Jackson songs. However the song "Beat it" was mentioned once in the dialogue and a sound-a-like tune was played during the street montage. Also the moonwalk was imitated by strangers in the scene where Jackson walks on the street with a helmet on. See more »
During the interview it is mentioned that Michael Jackson owned the Beatles catalog. However by the time the flashback scenes were set Jackson didn't own the entire catalog. Half of the songs were sold to SONY in 1995 for about $100 million and in 2005 another part was sold so that SONY owned 75% of the rights. See more »
Overall an average film at best. I think they left out all kinds of tidbits concerning the last few years of his life. Acting was fairly solid and the guy that played Michael was pretty good. Story could have been deeper though. Anyway would I recommend it? Meh... Take it or leave it.
