Michael Jackson in This Is It.

by Paul I.

“This is it,” Michael Jackson said in his speech in London while announcing his planned concerts. “This is—the final curtain call.”

This Is It was originally the name given to Jackson’s planned concerts London’s O2 Arena. The concerts were designed to give Jackson fans performances of their favorite songs, and which the artist was to make a comeback off of as the superstar performer he was not too long ago.

Despite Jackson was unable to perform his concerts at London due to his untimely death, he nevertheless delivered amazing rehearsal performances in the film. This Is It showcased footage of Jackson’s rehearsals from March through June 2009—preparation for the 50+ planned concerts in London that were planned to begin in July.

This is it included stage performances of a number of Jackson’s worldwide hits, including Beat It, Thriller, Smooth Criminal—some hits coupled with home video footage belonging to Jackson—and of course, a performance of none other than Billie Jean. While fans were unable to witness these concerts in person, most of the rehearsal attendees were none other than the background dancers and stage performers—who cheered on what has repeatedly been dubbed the greatest entertainer that ever lived.

One of the most amazing things about the film, aside from all of the special effects, technology and background dancers—was Jackson himself. At the age of 50, Jackson dances, sings and showcases moves similar to the way he did over 20 years ago—in his prime years. Still, while Jackson does showcase a lot of his older hits (which by all means, are still amazing), fans should be in awe with all the new elements This Is It has to present.

This Is It was released in theatres October 28, 2009. However, given the movie’s successful racking in of $101 Million worldwide in its first-week opening, Sony has extended the movie beyond its planned 2-week play, so This Is It still playing at a theater near you.
