This is a great movie!!!!! It kept me at full attention throughout and the performances were incredible, especially Chadwick Boseman & Nelsan Ellis. Chadwick Boseman has great stage presence and all eyes are on him. He was James Brown & Prince was there too! Baby, Chadwick is a star! Nelsan Ellis really showed tremendous acting ability from his Lafayette character from, "True Blood," to the character he portrays in this movie. I can't remember his characters name in the movie, but Nelsan acted his a** off. Viola Davis & Octavia Spencer were awesome as well. YOU HAVE GOT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!

Chadwick, a fellow BISON ! (Howard University) and my dear friends Viola, her husband Julius, Joni Bovill and Keith Robinson were all outstanding in this film. Chadwick truly morphed into James Brown ! Bravo !

I loved the movie. Explained something's and revealed something's I didn't know about him like how he risked his life just to bring joy to the troops. He was a giver I didn't know that. Great movie! Think I'll see it again! Funny too!
