Tina Turner (Angela Bassett) was born Anna Mae Bullock in Nutbush, Tennessee. She was abandoned by her parents and raised by her grandmother. After reuniting with her mother and sister, she meets and eventually marries charismatic band leader Ike Turner (Laurence Fishburne). The volatile relationship turns violent with the drug addicted Ike.There is absolutely nothing wrong with the two leads. In fact, they're doing great work. This is based on Tina Turner's book and even features her performing in the closing credits. Obviously, she has final approval. I don't have a problem with that since her abuse by Ike is well documented. It does leave a sense of sanitized history to some extend. It's much better than a TV biopic but it still some of that flavor. While it doesn't back away from the abuse or Ike's drug use, it shows the ugliness but the style of the movie lacks the darkness. I leave that mostly on director Brian Gibson who doesn't have much in the way of style. This is a solid biopic but with the two great leads, I expect more.
First, I should note that I don't know most of Tina Turner's music, and I've never seen any of her performances. That said, "What's Love Got to Do with It" is a fine movie. Even though biopics have become a cliché - and many of them are cynical excuses to get the stars Academy Award nominations (the god-awful "Man on the Moon" is one of the worst offenders) - this is still a movie that you have to see. Starting with Tina's humble beginnings when she was still known as Anna Mae Bullock, we see her move to St. Louis where she meets Ike Turner. She soon becomes part of his act and marries him, only to find out that he has a volatile side.Angela Bassett puts on the performance of a lifetime as Tina. I understand that she managed to impersonate Tina's moves to a tee. And then there's Laurence Fishburne as the abusive Ike. His performance made me feel as if I was walking on eggshells. The rest of the characters aren't developed that extensively, but the focus is supposed to be on Tina and Ike anyway.Bassett and Fishburne received Oscar nods for their performances. Although they didn't win, you can't deny the effort that they put into these roles. It affirms them as two of the greatest actors of their generations. It's one outstanding film, and I recommend it.In more recent developments, Ike died in 2007. Tina renounced her US citizenship and now lives in Switzerland with her current husband.
