The late Michael Jackson stars in this 3D science-fiction musical, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and co-starring Angelica Huston. Disney brought the film back to Epcot after the singer's death, but insiders suggest it won't stick around much longer.

The camp factor is worth the viewing. This movie is 30 years old, just remember that....

Considering this was made in the 80s, if you go into this expecting top of the line, jaw dropping special effects... well, shame on you. The film opened to a lot of fanfare at Disneyland in 1986, had a big premiere and what not. It hasn't aged well, but that's actually what makes it so great. This 3D film is hysterical, fantastic, and I love every cheesy minute of it. I'll be sad when this disappears from Disney parks.

The entire thing was terrible, someone I sat next to hated it so much, that he threw his 3-D glasses in the lake out front! In fact, my dad and I are going to see country bear jamboree and captainEO on the same day and decide which is worse!!!!!!

This movie showcases Michael Jackson at his peak. For everyone that has a problem with the special effects: please remember that the film is almost 30 years old. It was absolutely cutting edge when it was new, and accomplishes a lot with almost no CGI. It is a tribute to something from the past. If you see it in that light, and with appreciation for all that Michael Jackson accomplished (and not just the sad final years of his life), and you will really enjoy it. I think it's awesome, and both songs ("We Are Here to Change the World" and "Another Part of Me") are classics, recorded between the albums "Thriller" and "Bad".
