Charles Thomson

It is surely irresponsible to insert significant, fictitious incidents into movies marketed as true stories. Besides which, James Brown's life story was about as dramatic as they come. If you can't turn that into a compelling movie without inventing non-existent shotgun fire, nobody's life story is safe.

Leon Friedman
