    A slickly entertaining piece of work that will doubtless delight the young pop star’s fan base, and possibly engage curiosity-seekers who have heretofore remained immune or indifferent to Bieber Fever.

    The Bieber fans aren't going anywhere. And Justin Bieber's Believe is best when it shows us why.

    When the movie occasionally does confront its hero’s foibles, its answers are disappointingly pat.

    Another piece of propaganda for the Bieber proletariat.

    Along the way there’s a sprinkling of humanizing moments.

    All the boilerplate aphorisms and blatant attempts at image rehabilitation make Bieber seem like a kind of mega-church preacher leading a long-converted congregation, another huckster dancing around in a white suit.

    My daughter wants you to know that the movie is great and that you shouldn’t listen to a hater like me. I envy her belief.

    I looooved this one I think that Justin is misunderstood, he is in fact a wonderful kid and his good deeds should overcome all the negativity and the he's been getting from everyone lately. His new album is splendid, you can tell its straight from the heart and in a good balanced world people wouldn't give him such a hard time. He deserves good things. Very nice job Justin and Jon m Chu Expand

    This piece of garbage is just a commercial for a product, he is not an artist or musician. It is sad how many talented musicians are struggling for food and this jerk has money, fame and fans! This movie has to be erased from the existence! It is pure garbage! Expand

    This is suicide inducing, however, if you need to torture someone for information, its well worth it.
    watching the spastic colon fall out is
    more than this entertaining movie. If you have been forcible made to watch this, you may as well eat a pound of C4 Expand

    It's a Justin Bieber movie. Of course Beliebers are going to rate it 10/10 and call it the most touching movie about Bieber and what a nice kid he is.

    Looking at it, it's a bad attempt at trying to get attention. All the "I'm misunderstood, bullied" just makes you want to cringe. Honestly, these are the worst kind of movies.

    Hell no! Whoever is willing to spending their earnings or money on this crap must be outta their minds. This movie is horrible. I watched the movie with my sister and I'll never agree to go to the cinemas with my sister again. Just watching this movie made me hate him even more than before. Justin Bieber, just retire and do this world a favour Expand
