Consensus: As a tour documentary, it's rather uninspired -- but as a 3D glimpse of a building pop culture phenomenon, Never Say Never is undeniably entertaining.

It has come to this: parents who have recorded their children's lives since infancy can see their home films edited into their child's very own 3-D concert documentary.

Bieber's unquestionably gifted, and if he's smart enough to listen to the grounded, talented folk around him, there's every reason to hope that he'll turn out to be just fine when he grows up.

I find him such a bland, pious, profoundly unthreatening little Furby of a pop idol, but little girls' celebrity crushes are not to be trifled with. And this sensationally engineered promo film makes Justin Bieber look like a true force of nature.

The movie remains so sanitized, so authorized that it never gives us credit for being able to make up our own minds about him and what he represents.

Part biopic, part concert film and all crowd pleaser, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never is a big, glossy celebration of the musical phenom that knows exactly what it needs to do to send its target audience of 'tween girls into a tizzy of giddy screams.

I have no problem with Bieber and his music and I thought that this movie was pretty decent for a concert tour/documentary.

Went to the early sneak peek preview! I LOVED the movie. And I'm not one of those die hard Bieber fans, but i'm a fan lol. The 3D was really good,… More

The music industry has drastically changed. Every song talks about partying hard, booze, and hooking up with chicks and is all smothered in Auto-Tune. That just… More
