Killing Michael Jackson (2019)

“There was a lot of pressure to get it right. ” – Orlando Martinez

Number of Times Seen – 1 (18 May 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Documentary about the wrongful death suit that implicated his personal physician in Michael Jackson’s death.

My Take on it – This is a film that I came across by accident and upon seeing the title, was quite interested in seeing what it was all about.

I recall the death of Michael Jackson back in 2009, yet never knew about the circumstances revolving around his untimely death.

This movie gives the viewer an intimate look at the case and is quite captivating to watch.

The interviews with the 3 detectives that investigated the case are quite eye opening and gives the viewer much insight into everything that happened and how it all played out.

They manage to give the viewer key information about this case that for some reason has remained below the radar for so long since most celebrity death scandals are widely known once the story itself breaks.

They also have lots of other interviews with other people who were close to Jackson and could give very pertinent information to the kind of lifestyle he lived along with ho something like this could happen and end up spiraling out of control.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – News of his death spread quickly online, causing websites to slow down and crash from user overload, and putting unprecedented strain on services and websites including Google, AOL Instant Messenger, Twitter, and Wikipedia. Overall, web traffic rose by between 11% and 20%. (From Wikipedia)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
