Was OK...
17 October 2017 | by t-phommachanhSee all my reviews

A story of a big superstar and his eventual fall from grace and how it has defined not only his career but himself as a person. This film delves a deeper look from his early rise to fame to the now famous incident which has now tarnished his reputation and how we hear it from his side. Although it starts off well it starts to feel more like propaganda which to me feels like a film already too late to have been made.

I cannot say too much but it is just your typical documentary which feels like it is to invoke sympathy for the disgraced singer. Being a fan of his music I felt compelled to watch this film to hopefully see a different side of him. At first it was good and fair for him to let him tell his side of the story and what happened (now we need Rihanna's side) but given all the detail and comments from other people in his life and their opinions it gave a "I know what i did was wrong but please sympathise with me" kind of vibe. I can give him credit for being aware of his actions and trying to do the right thing but it feels hard to accept any change given behaviours and incidents after that incident.

Here we see interviews from other celebrities who have worked with him and seem to know him on a closer level but it seems that they are there to defend him and let the audience realise that we are human and to accept Chris Brown as a human who has done the wrong thing but a fall from grace is the only way to learn to move back up because what other way can there be to go?

In the end I do see this a some kind of film that is trying to give Chris Brown some kind of redemption and a different point of view of his past behaviours. It doesn't seem to work very well as it tries too hard to make him become any bit likable as a person but we must remember that he has done his time and he is trying to turn around. The past will always be there to haunt him and people will remind him of it. Whether you like him or hate him he is defined by what actions he will take moving forward and if he's learned anything at all.

I can't say it was a great film but interesting enough that I was able to sit through it all. I cannot say it will redeem himself and what he's done.

Give it a chance but it doesn't feel like it will change your opinion of him as it kind of feels forced on you to.
