Chadwick Boseman stars as James Brown in this biopic from Universal Studios and director Tate Taylor (The Help). From a childhood spent in poverty to his emergence as the Godfather of Soul, Brown's incredible life story is one of talent, determination, and perseverance. Brian Grazer, Mick Jagger, Victoria Pearman, and Erica Huggins produce a film co-penned in part by Jez and John-Henry Butterworth (Fair Game).~Jason Buchanan

My my I had no idea of all the things happening in the life of the real life James Brown. Well let me just say Chadwick Bozeman put it all out there. This was a different role I saw him in, but I would recommend it to any adult. I had to pause and take a break a couple of times only because I thought it was deep. If you like Chadwick then you’ll see the talent taken to a different level on screen.
Chadwick Boseman has to be one of the best actors of our time. He can complete in body a character and make you feel as though you were there living during those events. This was a great movie to honor James . Everyone needs to see this movie
