    Plot Synopsis: A 3D-motion picture event movie, Katy Perry: Part of Me is a backstage pass, front row seat and intimate look at the fun, glamorous, heartbreaking, inspiring, crazy, magical, passionate, and honest mad diary of Katy.

    There seems to be some limitations in making these 3D concert movies. The formats are largely generic and it is only a matter of time when it becomes cliché. The 3D concert movie format is mostly dedicated mostly to the fans and the host plays out footage about concert preparations, interviews, fans pointing out how their life changed dramatically, et cetera. Such movie always means for something about self-propaganda, self-appreciation and self-devotion; but Katy Perry: Part of Me means for something more than those.

    Part of Me is a 3D motion picture event that illustrates the story of how Katheryn Hudson becomes who she is today. The movie discusses about her strict childhood, the success with the Teenage Dream, scenes from the backstage of her California Dreams Tour and the ups-and-downs from her personal problems. It also features concert footage recorded on November 2011 at Staples Center, Los Angeles.

    Just like the setting of the concert, this is a pure candy land for the fans or at least to those who are familiar with her works. It is such a great thing to see she constantly wears the iconic spinning lollipops pinned to her breasts while hiding her sorrow expression from the troubled personal life, smiles as she makes entry and pleases the fans of the Brazil date. The fans cheer in a strong crowd turnout and show how much they love her. That scene is so strong with emotion that it is an appropriate reflection of how this is one of the most honest movies I have ever seen in years. Hidden inside the core is a captivating story that channels spiritual and inspiring journey. Not much artificial sugary coating is used in making this movie. Good music, decent story, interesting interviews and all she did in her professional life are enough to make me respect her for her devotions and work ethics.

    But here are some problems I noticed. Part of Me is not a new genre-defined as if like I am watching another Justin Bieber concert movie ‘Never Say Never’. It is also not a whole new mind-blowing experience that one would expect and the 3D is lavishly forgettable.

    In the end, Katy Perry: Part of Me is an exciting entrée that exquisitely works so well for the fans who have always been part of Katy Perry and filled with incredible story that inspires, although it gives nothing refreshing to the familiar experience.
