R.I.P. Michael Jackson(August 29, 1958 - June 25, 2009)
The special effects are basic but still kinda decent, there's a cheap but believeable look to them that only certain Hollywood effects people could pull off. Only during the 80's would you get away with this, yet its aged so well. The 3D of course is the main thing and as I remember it was brilliant!! really made you duckn dive for cover at certain times (when the alien/elephant guy throws a can at the screen, good little moment right there as I recall).
Makeup and costumes are excellent throughout as you would expect from all Jackson music videos, all the dancers look good and are on top form along with Jacko. The sets are obviously sets/soundstages but work well, nothing too original but it all looks magical enough. The makeup on Huston as 'The Supreme Leader' is really good and quite original in design, she looked like a 'Wheeler' from 'Return to Oz'.
The music isn't as memorable as 'Thriller' or anything else Jacko has done but its the sci-fi film aspect you come to see really. Its just a one off special event that looks damn good and is a great mindless mini adventure, nowadays is admittedly slightly dated but still thoroughly enjoyable. Another classic music video/mini movie from one of the greatest performers ever. Roll on the Bluray release.
