It’s interesting to note that upcoming movie, “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never,” is going to appeal to a lot more people than just his young female fans. Many will be surprised to hear that new movie “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” is really entertaining, the music in it is terrific, and Bieber turns out to be a true musician and performer. It’s a 3D movie that’s going to be drawing in enormous numbers of fans and word of mouth is going to keep the box office take strong. It may do better than similar movies done by teen stars Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers. When the new movie release goes to DVD the profits promise to be out of sight.
Movie picture “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” is all about Bieber’s 2010 tour for a CD released last year. It’s about Bieber’s rise to fame and his life now. Unlike the teen films mentioned above, this is more than a concert with a little extra thrown in. It works out well that Bieber got his start on YouTube. This means that there was already a lot of useful footage from every aspect of his early career available that makes the film about this young Canadian all the more interesting. The film begins with early YouTube videos and mixes it up with information about Bieber’s life on the road. Director Jon Chu fills the move with energy, using his experience from “Step Up 2: The Streets” and “Step Up 3D” as inspiration. Chu gets viewers involved in Bieber’s life while he’s on tour and while he’s home. He does a great job with a few scenes that center on Bieber becoming ill, a threat to his career. Chu handles it well and gets maximum impact from it.
There are cameos in the movie by Miley Cyrus and Jaden Smith, with whom Bieber performed the song “Never Say Never” for Smith’s movie, “The Karate Kid.” Neither cameo fits in well with the story. Since Chu did the movie for fans of Bieber, it exhibits no real depth to his relationships with his family, manager (Scooter Braun) or associates. Viewers are only going to see the good stuff about Bieber. The film is meant to be entertaining and entertaining it is.
