No, this is NYATM (not yet another teen movie). At least, not the one you might expect. Accordingly with some commentators, this is a satire. I couldn’t get it. I get a story, not that elaborated, that is watchable. But that can be told in one fifth of the used time. I know and I can understand that the rest is or can be defended as some kind of cinematographic art, like the way it was recorded, or the repetition of the text time after time. But it got boring. Well, if I did not stop watching it before was because of the.. yeah, of course, the girls. Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine.
I do not have any idea how I end up seeing these movies. They are just too bad. So bad that I end up without no certain about how the story developed (a problem I have is that all Chinese people seem similar to me). I had to go check the plot and synopsis on IMDB to be sure I understood the movie correctly.
Well, I think that after this review you will not watch the movie anyway. In any case, I prefer not to tell the story. Just tell you that are some bad sex scenes (so, this would be a bad porn movie), with probably the exception of the first one (shown above). There are too many still scenes, with minutes where nothing.. yes, nothing happens. The movie seems to be a silent film, where only news from the TV or radio are listened (there are a few more sentences from the main authors, but they are rare). Also, the director tried to make it also a musical, with some intermezzos of musical-like singing and dancing. Some of the musics have some rhythm, but the lyrics and the dancing is tremendous bad.
I pondered for some times not to write any review at all, and not vote on IMDB. Well, I voted because I like to keep track of the movies I watch (then, 1/10 was my vote) and I am blogging just to make sure nobody wastes an hour an half watching this movie…
Right, I have no idea why I watched this movie. OK, I confess I know why. Because a friend said I might like it, as there were lot of girls. I confirm, there are girls, and some are hot (although not really hot during the movie, but I googled them). But that doesn’t make it a good movie. There are a lot of special effects, but most of the times there are too much special effects, and it is not easy to really see anything. There are portions of the movie that are boring and, it seems that those movie parts are the ones that the director think are cool. Meh!
If you want to see something good in this movie, watch the first five minutes. They are great. Really. Nice music, nice acting, nice recording. More than that, the movie is bad, but the sound track is interesting. Voted 3/10 at IMDB. 2 for the sound track, 1 for the girls.
