REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“.."Get on Up" is loud, proud, funky, soulful, sweaty, emphatic and sometimes a little hard to understand..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..yet "Get 0n Up" is a triumph - a messy, qualified triumph that even at 138 minutes makes an incomplete case for Brown's meaning to American life and culture..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“.."Get on Up" feels like the opposite of its subject: no rhythm and very little soul..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
