A balanced score
25 April 2019 | by lanna-sousaSee all my reviews

Between her fans giving 10 stars to this, and haters giving only 1, there is me who knows a few of her songs, but never even listen to one entire Beyoncé's album.

I stand with a 7 star review and I'll tell you why.

Everybody got to admit that this production deserved to be recorded. This is just a concert, a Coachella concert, but Beyoncé put an effort on it beyond precedents!!

That's it guys!! You can not expect a concert she could give on a Tour. Don't expect either some serious and well behaved perfomance, simply because her music is not like that. Yes, you'll see a lot of cursing and sexual dancing, angry expressions and political positions... if you don't like this, than you don't like her music! And if don't like her music, why the hell would you watch her show expecting to like it? IT DOESNT MAKE ANY SENSE.

I believe that most of the people giving 1 star is actually judging Beyoncé musically and personally. Not the film.

I really enjoyed her performance specially when in comparison to other artists perfomance on Coachella.

The only problem i see here, it's because Netflix promoted this as a documentary, and this is not it. This is just a concert, with a few backstage scenes!! So if you watched lady's Gaga's "five foot two", and thought this would be similar... forget about it! The film is just like those DVDs we used to buy at the supermarket with a concert of our favorite artist... and then played it at home once we were having a dinner party.

THATS IT AND ITS GOOD just good

Go ahead and watch it with the right expectations.
