Annie, are you OK?

I remember my grandmother buying me this as a small boy. I watched it so much I nearly wore out the tape! Sadly, time has not been kind to it. The whole bunny rabbit claymation scene is tedious and the re-imagining of the Bad video with children is just... bad. Then there's the utterly ludicrous story, written by Jackson himself, where he turns into a car, a robot and a spaceship, with a rather embarrassing Joe Pesci performance. Michael Jackson was the biggest star in the world by far in the 80's. Otherwise, this nonsense would NEVER have been green-lit.

So, why do I now own the DVD? Two words. Smooth Criminal. That sequence is for me the pinnacle of his 'short films.' Yes, I've seen Thriller but I'll still take Smooth Criminal every time. The insane choreography, the music, the dancing... Who hasn't tried to do THAT lean? Jacko's writing and acting might have been lacking, but man, the guy could move. When I had it on VHS, it was my favourite part of the movie. Now it's the only part I watch. I do like the video for Leave Me Alone, though. Michael pretty much revolutionised music vids in the 80's, and this is one of his lesser known but very original videos.

If, like me, you can remember the glory days of Michael,and were a big fan, then by all means revisit this. If not, move along sharply.

the title moonwalker is trashy

Michael Jackson delivered us an glorified an 1hr 45min long compilation of various clips of his work and it bares no significance to the title and within it self didn't live up to the narrative that supposed to be the origin of his iconic dance instead of this slap dash mess of an movie where the main action doesn't heat up until the 45 min mark before then you would have fallen asleep due to the boredom of the first 2 acts of the movie where as his short movie thriller was pure magic that reduced to an mini clip but the montage sequence had armature photo shop FX and kids trying to be bad was awful with worst choreography but I couldn't watch the entire movie but skip to the 45 min mark there is no real redeemed quality what so ever If I want to see a film about moonwalking I'd rather watch Neil Armstrong actually doing it I can't rate it higher but giving it an 4 out of 10.

An enjoyable and imaginative anthology film that captures Michael Jackson at the pinnacle of his illustrious career.

Originally released in the fall of 1988. Michael Jackson produced/co-wrote and starred in one of the most successful anthology films of all time. The film chronicles several of Michael's most famous songs from his Bad album, released a year earlier, and tells an enjoyable, unique, and entertaining story for the whole family.

Songs used in Moonwalker include Man in the Mirror (Opening Live Performance), Bad (Badder Segment), Speed Demon (Claymation and Live Action Segment), Smooth Criminal (Live Action Short Film), and Come Together ("Live" Performance).

Plot Overview: Michael receives unexplainable (but very useful) powers from a recurring shooting star. Using these special powers granted to him, Michael in an effort to save his young friends must defeat a ruthless yet zany drug dealer Frank LiDeo (Joe Pesci).

Overall Thoughts: This is a very fun film. It is filled with dazzling special effects, outstanding music and choreography, fantastic set designs, underrated musical score, and a fun adventure for the whole family. Michael has a very good performance in the film (or series of short films rather), delivering genuine emotion, particularly towards the end of the film. The film is targeted for children and Jackson's fans, so I think that it is safe to say this film is not for everyone. My only complaint with the film is that it can feel disjointed at times and it has a mediocre script. But that is not to say that this isn't a delightful film about friendship, loyalty, and magic.
