(mbc.net) Michael Jackson portrays himself as a musician, dancer, and superhero tasked with saving the world from Mr. Big (Joe Pesci) and his minions, who are bent upon transforming the world into drug addicts.  With help from his young fans and magical stars that allow him to transform into objects such as cars and robots, Michael takes on Big's men -- although the task is not an easy one.

Performances from Jackson's 1987 album are sprinkled throughout the film.  Songs such as Smooth Criminal, Leave me Alone, Speed Demon, and a unique remake of the Bad video are all included in the picture.

Moonwalker was nominated for a Grammy.  Despite being a direct to video release, it earned an impressive $22 million.
