  1. Catarina Silva's rating of the film Get on Up

  2. L. Nolan's rating of the film Get on Up

    Enjoyed it, despite disconnect between the half-baked screenplay and routine direction.

  3. Danny Southern's rating of the film Get on Up

    3,5. That movie seems to have a bad rap around here. It sure ain't perfect but it avoid the usual trope of the genre and have a whole lot of soul.

  4. babycakesromero's rating of the film Get on Up

    kinda lame. brown deserved better

  5. Waxamillion's rating of the film Get on Up

    This movie bounced around & was so choppy that it made it really hard to care. It went through the motions, ticked every box it needed to without joining the dots. This is one of those films that tries to do too much and ends up doing very little. Also, Chadwick Boseman's James Brown voice made it really hard to pick up any of the dialogue. There are some quite nice shots, but all in all not the best film of 2014

    Now we know that James Brown haven't had serious problems in his life other than his temper.

  10. Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film Get on Up

    3+. I usually don't like biopics, and am not fond of 'black music' but i have to admit this one is very good! Especially for melomaniac/music lover. And this Chadwick Boseman... !!! Just totally possessed! Impressive performance!

  11. Marco Pierrard's rating of the film Get on Up

  12. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Get on Up

    Despite of its dynamism and rhythmic turbulence, I honestly expected much more from James Brown’s story. (2.5 stars)

  13. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Get on Up

    There's no denying the quality of Boseman's performance but ultimately 'Get On Up' is a very generic music biopic. Like most, it worries too much about rushing through events instead of trying to capture a moment. In the end, the portrait given is poorly layered.

  14. Lauren Mahaffy's rating of the film Get on Up

    chadwick boseman IS james brown.
