This movie chronicles the late James Brown and his rise to fame. To me, this is how you do a biopic. I was unsatisfied recently with the Frankie Valley biopic, "Jersey Boys," so I was happy to see this film did a much better job of telling the story.
The main actor, Chadwick Boseman (you may remember from the Jackie Robinson biopic "42") did a great job portraying the Godfather of Soul James Brown. You will love the music, the story and will be smiling throughout the whole thing. If you like musical biopics, this movie is for you.
