Get on Up On route to the stage, singer James Brown recalls a life with a turbulent childhood where music was his only constructive release for his passions. A chance demonstration of that in prison led to a new friend who helped get him out and into a musical career. With his fire and creative daring, Brown became a star who defiantly created new possibilities in show business both on and behind the stage in face of racism and conventional thinking. Along the way, James would also become a peacemaker who redefined and raised the African-American community’s feeling of self-worth when it was needed most. However, those same domineering passions would lead James Brown alienating everyone around him as his appetites became ever more self-destructive. Only after he hit rock bottom with a serious mistake does Brown realize what he needs to do make his life as the Godfather of Soul truly worthwhile.

Review Get on Up :
More than a Ten!
This movie is so fabulous, I'm definitely going to see it again. The acting is brilliant, with a tour- de-force performance by Chadwick Boseman as James Brown. The singing, the music, the dance moves are all so right and entertaining. Seeing JB way back when made me realize how other artists were influenced by his genius…Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson to name a few. Besides all the on-stage performance thrills, the movie has real heart and makes you care. Through Chadwick Boseman's eyes, expressions and emotional outbursts, you can easily see the boy inside the man James Brown. There are memorable scenes between JB and his Mama (Viola Davis) his Aunt Honey (Octavia Spencer), his muse Bobby Byrd (Nelsan Ellis) and his music agent (Dan Ackroyd). Add in great camera work and sharp editing, and you get to feel like you were actually there for JB's evolution from boy to man, his creative journey from gospel to funk, and all the passion, drive for excellence and energy it took to take him soaring to the top and stay there for so many years!
