This music documentary is of the "behind the scenes" variety, the kind where even the "unscripted" feels scripted. Throughout Burn the Stage: The Movie, there are voice-overs such as, "We made oceans while crossing the desert, and we shared all that with our fans." It's the kind of overblown melodrama that will resonate with their young fan base, even if it makes everyone else's eyes roll to the back of their head or causes older audiences to recall their own youthful infatuations with, say, Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block, David Cassidy, etc. That said, while this documentary should appeal to those who are already fans of these K-pop superstars, it's not going to win any new converts.
While BTS has millions of fans all over the world and wins awards, success is not all it's cracked up to be. Sometimes, the guys need to catch their breath, and other times, they need an extra-long session with the masseuse. But all of this is tolerable, because it's all about the fans. Perhaps the most honest moment of the documentary is when BTS members are sitting behind long tables in a meeting room with their manager, who informs them of how the American market is starting to respond to their earnest energy, and how they need to be and look happy with their success. None of it seems especially designed to win new converts, but perhaps that's not the point; like the name of the tour, this is for "The Wings," the name they call the self-described ARMY of fans.
