This movie is like the epitome of such a great time in the creative and well researched overall message that a movie is trying to give to its audience in regards to telling a story of a leg and life.. and WOW can we just talk about from the beginning of the play button to the end, each character and each scene they were in they truly embodied the essence of the real life, such as Selena(with Jennifer Lopez) both with this movie the amazing revelation was the each lead were not the first or even considered for the roles, and they fought for and became them, they danced, they sang, there were no short CUTS, in today's adaptation the main focus is on relevance and quantity verses something like this.

Thanks for reading, i encourage more of you to be more detailed.

WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT is a powerful film, a riveting account of Tina Turner's life, from her abandonment by her mother, to their complicated reunion in young adulthood, to her marriage and success as a musical duo with husband Ike Turner, to the turn of events that leads Anna Mae (ahem, Tina) to escape from her oppressive and abusive environment and bravely fight for herself. It's raw and brutal, but equally inspiring and beautiful, as the larger-than-life music legend gets back up and, through sheer determination, becomes the icon we know today. I really enjoyed this film and highly recommend it.

This is one of the better music biopics I've seen, and I've seen many. The movie is rated R for domestic violence, strong language, drug use and some sexuality.

A beautiful, brutal, truthful movie about getting back your power.

Despite the abuse, Tina Turner became a strong person and one of the all-time greatest female singer/performer, and with her determination, hard work and powerful voice Tina risked losing it all to escape the abuse.
