So what the heck was that?! It wasn’t Jem and the Holograms! There was no supercomputer named Synergy. No crazy super earrings. This a was just a terrible looking Disney Channel movie. No wait, I take that back. Disney probably would have made a rock and roll superhero movie, but they would have modernized it, still bad, but not this. This has the 80’s glam but none of the superhero antics. <sigh> Speaking of antics, where are the Misfits? Who is supposed to be trying to throw these girls off a cliff to become the number one band in the world even though they are in a completely different genre of music? No one? Just bad teenage relationship angst? No thanks.
Universal could have had a fun crazy superhero movie targeted to young girls. The first one that I have heard of. They could have owned that market, but they blew it, and instead they made a generic looking bore fest. Jem and the Holograms deserved better. Watch the old cartoon it is bound to be more fun than this looks.
