CommentsThemes in this music documentary are slightly complex and mature however they are of low impact, as the themes are not disturbing, upsetting, harmful or inappropriate for children of any age. Themes involve One Directions' quick rise to fame, footage of their live performances, the hysteria of the young tween and teen fans, relations between band members, the emotions involved with travelling around on tour and the challenges of being a star at a young age. These themes are non-threatening or menacing although they may be slightly [sic] for very young children due to the documentary format aimed at tweens and teens.

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconOn-the-road footage for the fans.

C. Fuchs quote iconAs far as the documentary goes, it's okay but otherwise unremarkable, and it's certainly not the near religious experience that was U2 3D. In other words, if you scream upon hearing the band's name or any of their songs, you'll probably love it. If you don't, well, there's always a good Beatles album to listen to.

Tomatometer quote icont's mostly for the converted, but One Direction: This Is Us will be fun for fans -- and it offers just enough slickly edited concert footage to entertain the casual viewer.
