"Katy Perry: Part of Me" Movie Review

"Katy Perry: Part of Me" Movie Review


"Katy Perry: Part of Me" is a documentary movie of Katy Perry during her world tour in 2011. In this film, you can have the chance to experience the backstage, front row seat and close-up look at this famous, funny and passionate singer.

How does it feel like to watch Katy Perry performs in 3D in Cinema?

Check it out in cinema soon!


First and foremost, this is a film for Katy Perry’s fans. So those Katy Perry’s haters, you can definitely skip this movie.

Now, let’s talk about the movie. It is an MTV-film production and it is a documentary film. So, basically, there is no plot in this movie. It is a mash-up of interviews related with Katy Perry’s life, photos sharing, backstage scenes during the world tour concerts, Katy’s fans shoutout and also the ever wonderful LIVE Performance of Katy Perry Concert in 3D effect! Of course, Katy’s life experience during the tour is also shared here. Since it is a documentary film, most people may find it less interesting and boring because it is different from normal plot-driven movie. Well, to put it straight, the movie feels like a reality interview TV talk show along with high-quality footage of her concert performance.

The movie has a sufficient amount of contents to allow the audience to know about Katy Perry’s efforts in achieving her dream. A lot of self-recorded video of Katy when she was young are shown in this film. All of these videos have shown that she has been fighting for her dream all the time. Apart from that, some videos have also displayed the conflicts that she has faced throughout her musical journey.

A lot of fans videos are also featured in this film. Well, I believe many people will be delighted to see how Katy interacts with her fans. We can also see the excitement in the faces of the fans as they were interviewed before and after the concerts.

Last but not least, the film will also allow the audience to get close to Katy Perry because a lot of naturally-filmed backstage scenes are also shown here. For example, like how she interacts with her manager, stylist, her sister and also her crew can be seen in this movie.
Her relationship and Russell Brand is also highlighted in this film.

From the aspect of soundtrack, all of them are her hit songs such as “California Gurls”, “The One That Got Away”, “I Kissed A Girl” and etc. These songs are all taken from her LIVE performance in her concerts. Prior to each song, there will be footages introducing some of her real life experience and thus showing us the stories behind some of these songs that she has written.

Anyway, the camera view during her concert is great. It makes me wish that the concert for other artists can be captured like this too. The 3D effect of the film on the other hand is ok but not excellent. Not all scenes are in 3D because I did take off my 3D Specs occasionally to make comparison. 3D effects are mostly seen only during her concert footages and also in the photos that they have shared on screen.

However, the movie also contains a few unnecessary videos which has no connection with the flow. Apart from that, the movie also does not reveal in details for some her personal conflicts. For example, her relationship problem is not explained in details. But this is understandable too because it’s her privacy.

Overall, it is a quite inspiring and entertaining documentary movie of Katy Perry on-stage and off-stage!

What I like about the movie:
  1. Quite a lot of contents (interviews, fans shoutout, high-definition concert footage, backstage candid style scenes)
  2. Nice assembling of footage videos link us with the stories behind her songs and her success
  3. Inspirational
  4. Cameo appearance by some other famous artists
What I dislike about the movie:
  1. Not all footages shown are interesting. A few of the footages are quite boring and unnecessary.
  2. 3D effect is inconsistent
  3. Some of her personal life conflicts are not well-explained
  4. An abrupt ending which is different from what I have expected (I am expecting an ending with an inspiring or moving quote! But it didn’t happen)

This movie deserves a 6.5/10.0!

It is an inspiring documentary movie! Highly recommended for Katy Perry’s fans!

However, take note, this movie is not for anyone, it’s only for the categories of audience below:

1) Katy Perry fans
2) People who have passion and enthusiasm in music
3) People who knows what to expect from a documentary movie
4) People who are open-minded and willing to try out a rare genre of movie

If you are not anyone from the category above, then, I DON’T think you will enjoy the movie!

Special thanks to ChurpChurp and Hype Malaysia for the tickets!

  1. "I wasn't a Katy Perry fan before this movie. But after watching this, i will start noticing her progress and her work. Which shows that this biography was a success! Watching Katy Perry's concert in 3-D wasn't the epitome of the movie for me. But to watch her put aside the challenges, emotions even down to right before the live concerts, was inspiring. Her fame wasn't handed to her on a silver platter. And as a music lover and musician myself, the way she revamped "I Kissed a Girl" into 6/8 time signature which was a fresh arrangement really showed of her musicality and her vocals were authentic when she handled all the ballads. So to all those music critics that say that music people can't learn anything from her music, you are totally wrong. Her historical achievement of 5 chart toppers in a single album is no corrupted achievement. Therefore, i'll give a 7.0/10 for this movie. Fans MUST go see it. For those who are not fans but from the music line and has a desire to rise up one day, see it for inspiration. Stereotypists,haters,jokers,action movie seekers can save yourselves a trip.
