Story | Jul 28, 2014 | 10:30 AMIs it possible for a single movie to capture James Brown in all his multitudes, contradictions and reinventions? Probably not, but "Get On Up" makes an admirable, fitfully successful stab at the life of the brilliant but volatile funk-soul legend who wore at least as many personalities and personas as he did nicknames and honorary titles. Arriving at the end of a high season for biopics of black historical and cultural figures ("42," "Mandela," "Lee Daniels' The Butler"), "Get On Up" runs shorter on the pandering simplifications and sanctifying airs that plagued those films, while still delivering a very digestible, authorized portrait that might best be described as "warts and some." A strong marketing push by Universal and a dearth of adult-skewing fare bodes well for this Brian Grazer-Mick Jagger production, which clearly has its sights set on the late-summer sleeper success of both "The Butler" ($116 million) and director Tate Taylor's previous "The Help" ($169 million).
