Mindless Behavior : Around the World movie review

ImageAt last, what Mindless Behavior fans have been waiting for – the opportunity to experience the American boy band’s journey to stardom. All Around the World is their inspiring documentary that showcases talent, tears, laughter and insight into the story of how the teen sensations were put together at an open casting call. The band has sparked a “Mindless Movement” with their mix of R&B, pop, and hip-hop harmonies as well as their smooth, cool, slick dance moves.

Fans will be thrilled at the 86 minutes of what goes on behind-the-scenes of Mindless Behavior’s life. I went to the screening not knowing much about the band and their music. Now, I certainly respect and admire them for their dedication and passion for what they do.

The movie includes never-before-seen footage of band members Prodigy, Roc Royal, Princeton, and Ray Ray. As a documentary, it follows in the steps of Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never. It could even be a cut higher due to the fact that we see the band’s tears, laughter, hardships alongside success. The movie didn’t need fancy 3D to make viewers feel like they’re in a concert. I could already connect emotionally with Mindless Behavior. They’re simply talented, hardworking teenagers who are truly following their love of dance and music.

Videos and baby pictures of the band will make the theater coo “aww” and laugh out loud. I was impressed at the raw talent the band showed off even at the tender age of six, freestyle dancing their hearts out.

The movie follows how each of the members was recruited and concludes with their world tour. They all had to make big sacrifices to be a part of the band – from waking up at early hours, to rigorous workouts, to life on the road. I was even brought to tears (and so was my dad) at a certain poignant moment during MB’s tour.

All Around the World shows Mindless Behavior to be a dedicated band that works hard to give fans what they want. The documentary shows them spending time with their fans, inspiring them to be “mindless,” which is to be confident no matter who is watching. MB also reveals that before every performance, they huddle with the crew and pray for God’s blessings and favor.

The movie will surely unleash a wave of Mindlessness all around the world, making fans feel like they’re touring with Mindless Behavior. In fact, it might even make you “mindless!”
