In celebration of what could have been the 54th birthday of the late and famous singer and artist Michael Jackson, here's a review of his movie that I wrote for MOONWALKER. To me, it wasn't so bad and who cares if his film doesn't have a plot, but it is a one journey trip to this experience that features the King of Pop's imagination. I won't spoil anything from the whole movie, but I loved the amazing dance sequence "Smooth Criminal" which is the biggest highlight of all and I am surprised that one of the kids from the final segment was played by John Lennon's son Sean.

This is a must-see for people including myself are fans of the late King of Pop and I still love his dance moves, his videos and most importantly, his music.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
