Katy Perry: Part Of Me (3D)
Get foamed in 3D


submit to reddit


Plot
American superstar Katy Perry lets the cameras accompany her California Dreams worldwide tour in 2011 as she performs to thousands every night while trying to keep her relationship with new husband Russell Brand alive. Between the songs there are interviews with entourage and family about Perry’s rise to fame.


Review
Katy Perry: Part Of Me (3D)
Before this behind-the-scenes insight into Katy Perry’s 2011 world tour explodes like a Technicolor cupcake shot out of a confetti cannon, some words of warning appear onscreen: “Thank you fans. Enjoy the show.” Part Of Me assumes you already buy into Perry – a larger-than-life popstar from a Pentecostal Christian rock background who boasts of “a connection to fairy tales” and performs night after night like a perma-smiley, rotating mannequin. Her superfans (the “Katy Cats”) will sing along throughout the 3D-enhanced tour footage while lapping up appearances by Perry’s silly ole grandma and videos of her as a young child. Like Justin Bieber’s 2011 film, this is great fun for fans. For everyone else, however, who perhaps don’t buy into glittery fairy tales there’s little to hold attention. Perry’s impending relationship doom with Russell Brand is an incident the film was clearly unprepared to tackle head on, while interviews with her religious parents about Katy’s wayward lyrics are as vapid as those in Jessica Simpson’s MTV programme Newlyweds. For those who believe the “real” Katy Perry is just an extraordinarily energetic 27 year-old, sometimes without make-up, who deodorises before playing to 16,000 people every night then her sexualised sugarplum façade remains intact.


Verdict
Fans will relish the chance to see Katy’s rainbow-tastic live shows magically enhanced by 3D technology. Those indifferent to her will leave as perplexed about Perry's superstardom as they were before.

Only 2 stars EmPIRE? I am shocked. I was expecting this to reach the dizzy heights of The Godfather or at least The new Citizen Kane! Shame on you! P.S (Sarcasm is great) ... More
