Even in death, Michael Jackson looks poised to break records. With online ticket retailers swamped and lines snaking through theater lobbies and down city blocks, moviegoers geared up for the much anticipated 'This Is It,' a record of MJ's final days as he rehearsed the titular concert spectacle that would never be.

Between the film's limited two-week run and a legion of devoted fans still grieving his sudden death four months ago, curiosity has been high about the two-hour documentary, in which MJ performs some of his most beloved songs, as well as new material set to signature dance moves.

Given that Sony Pictures has already recouped its initial $60M investment in advance ticket sales and that the film earned early critical praise after a 12-minute preview last week, it's time to ask: Does 'This is It' live up to the hype as well as honor Jackson's memory?
