      Jocelyn P As a lifelong fan of the Jem and the holograms franchise, I was beyond disappointed in this movie. An insult to the original show and a complete waste of my time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/25/23 Full Review Rachel H It's my absolute favorite movie. And the soundtrack has stayed in my Playlist since it came out Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/27/23 Full Review Helaina h Surprised this didn't do better at the box office. I watched the original while I was babysitting my neighbor way back when, and I liked its silver screen edition. The songs are catchy, the cast is likable and I hope Aubrey Peeples gets another shot at showing off her singing. Hey, Netflix…..why don't you pick this up as a series? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/01/23 Full Review Cyrus K This did so bad critically and financially that they pulled this movie from theaters after 2 weeks. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/07/23 Full Review red t Lots of Problems. The acting is not good overall. At best its generic and at worst its boring, stale dialogue with no real chemistry amongst the actors. Most of the time the acting just comes off as boring more than anything. I really never liked a single character. The music isn't that good half the time it doesn't even tie into the story. The singing itself is ok at best and forgettable at worst. The music in general outside of the song numbers in the movie are not good feeling very out of place and unneeded much of the time. The cinematography is atrocious with constant shaky cam that feel completely unneeded and makes it hard to focus on a scene because of the constant fast editing. That is on top of bad internet, video call, Robot POV shots that don't look good even if you take the shaky cam out. The whole thing looks like a amateur filmed this and doesn't feel like a professional made movie at all. The editing is very bad also with random YouTube videos put in that have nothing to do with the plot and the awkward camera shots constantly changing feel very disorienting. The pacing itself is ok at best as I never felt the movie got boring or a scene went on too long. The plot itself is riddled with plot holes such as why did her Dad know she would ever find the piece at the cub in a random guitar or why didn't Jerrica just tell her sisters about the contract before signing when there within shouting distance just to name a few). The only things I can say about that is positive is it felt like it had a plot (A very badly written one) and it moved at a ok pace. This is a very fundamentally flawed bad movie. It's far from the worst thing ever but its not worth your time. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review ax a This movie was so bad. It shouldn't even be associated with Jem at all. The acting wasn't the problem, it was the storyline. Nothing like the 80's awesome cartoons. We should sue them for wasting our time.

      Glenn Heath Jr. Little White Lies A highly flawed, occasionally dumb, but fascinating blast of neon, revisionist girl power, and social media wanderlust. Rated: 3/5 Feb 11, 2016 Full Review Tom Huddleston Time Out Every line, every twist and every note of music feels painstakingly focus-grouped. Rated: 2/5 Feb 9, 2016 Full Review Alison Willmore BuzzFeed News For a movie about someone learning to come out of their shell, Jem and the Holograms is utterly confounding about what it even means to be authentic. Nov 9, 2015 Full Review Dominic Griffin Spectrum Culture Jem is honest enough in its aims that the sacrilegious divergence from the original material can almost be forgiven. Rated: 2.75/5 Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Amanda Greever The Daily Times (Tennessee) The names are the same, but that's about it. Feb 5, 2019 Full Review Johnny Gayzmonic Fanboys of the Universe This may not be the film adaptation of the cartoon that the fans wanted...but even so, it is still very true to the heart of what made Jem so special.
