Burn the Stage: The Movie leaves you tad underwhelmed because it doesn’t go deep enough.
The film mainly documents the 2017 The Wings tour of the South Korean boy band Burn The Stage, better known as BTS. It mainly shows how they prepare for their performances and with a lot of BTS (behind the scene footage) (no pun intended).
It becomes repetitive after a while as there are not many new developments. The graph of the narrative is mostly flat. However, you do get to know more about the band and almost feel you’re a part of their lives as a band. Nothing much is known about the personal lives of the members and that is kind of disappointing. You do see them having fun, pulling each other’s legs and that’s entertaining to watch. There are also scenes in which they’re seen coping with injuries and their insecurities. They are nicely done.
In no way is the film completely unwatchable. It’s just that it could’ve been deeper & more enriching.
PS: We were invited to watch the film by Inox Malad and the experience was pretty good. The surround sound makes it so much better. They also have a Samsung ONYX LED screen, which is perfect for a larger-than-life experience. Make sure you check it out.
