Didn't know much about the Temptations and wasn't even a fan...until I watched this film. While the plot is predictable -- rise to fame with accompanying struggles, crashes and burns -- the cinematography, casting, script,and of course MUSIC make this a jukebox bio well worth watching. See it not just for the music but for the history and the film's stunning visual beauty.
This Movie Sucks

I hate this film. This is one of the worst I have seen. I saw it 6 years ago when it came out. It was bad then because of the technology/early cgi. If you work in a retail store and someone wants to buy "Robots," give it to them for free - they shouldn't have to pay for it! This is a big fat WOOF!!

It's obvious they started this movie with the visual ideas (as they state they did in the DVD extras). They came up with this world--which is absolutely, mind-bogglingly, beautifully rendered in the film--and then hung a paper-thin plot on it. The voice cast is pretty good (minus Halle Berry, who is just bland), but the visuals definitely stick with you longer than any of the story elements.
