Critic Reviews of "Get On Up"New YorkerSeptember 05, 2014
Chadwick Boseman gives a startling and galvanic performance.ChristyLemire.comAugust 06, 2014
In Boseman's hands - and his feet, and his entire body, for that matter - he demands and earns our attention.Richard Roeper.comAugust 01, 2014
Somewhat sanitized and over-directed biopic saved by Boseman's electric performance.indieWireAugust 01, 2014
Though "Get On Up" never congeals into a satisfactory whole, its fragmentary portrait of the singer at the height of his fame - intercut with his troubled single-parent childhood - effectively shows his invasive power in popular culture.Denver PostAugust 01, 2014
More often, the film skates along the surface of Brown's contradictory character. Now if it skated like Brown's dance moves glided onstage, that really would have been something.Christian Science MonitorAugust 01, 2014
The storytelling is mostly linear, with some confusing back-and-forth in the chronology, and it's a long slog. The Brown who emerges from this film has a monstrous ego to go with his monster talent.National Newspaper Publishers AssociationMarch 21, 2017
Warts and all, in fits and starts, finally the Hardest Working Man in Show Business gets his story told.NY1-TVAugust 17, 2016
The narrative is unsatisfying as it leaves lots of unanswered questions.Epoch TimesMay 29, 2016
As prodigious a talent as Prince was, he only altered the funk. The megalithic, trail-blazing talent of James Brown birthed it. And Chadwick Boseman nails the telling of it.AARP Movies for GrownupsApril 18, 2016
Musically explosive, emotionally powerful and flat-out funky, Get on Up tells the outrageous life story of James Brown with a quirky brilliance worthy of the man at its center.CinemixtapeApril 12, 2016
Worthy of its subject and the dollars of music and film fans alike. As roundly entertaining as any biopic in recent memory.The Film StageMarch 26, 2016
Boseman is the highlight, of course, and Taylor is smart to keep his leading man front-and-center in every, single scene.
