Get on Up

  • Rated as: 4/5

A grand piece of magic happens with Chadwick Boseman’s utter inhabitation of the role of James Brown—himself an artist who gave a lifelong performance—and still, the mysterious man behind the legend comes through with uncommon, heart-stopping electricity. It’s not just that Boseman has the
