Bring It On: All or Nothing (2006)
Much better than BIOA.
I rented this movie just for the sake of it, I own the first one and the first soundtrack, I saw the second one, I even said 'get up out of my kool aid' a couple times, so, on principle, i had to see the third one.
It started out, and I figured that it was going to be the worst movie I'd seen all year.
But, it turned out, that once the movie turned it's head away from PV, there was a much better view.
The movie's coolest scene was by far the krumping scene. It was brilliant. It was subtle, yet from the very start you were intrigued as to what they were doing. That is what the Crenshaw cheerleading squad makes you feel like the entire movie, and when they bust out, you can't help but be mesmerized.
While the main bitch of the movie, wasn't intimidating at all, and whose parts were simple boring, the rest of the actors did fairly well, especially considering this is the third in a line of movies that no one thought should go past one.
The other three "main" Prarie girls were pretty entertaining to watch, even though Sierra's "stupidity" got extremely annoying. The Crenshaw kids stood their ground the entire movie, all of them holding my interest the entire movie. The movie would have been just as good if Prarie Vista had played no part in the storyline.
Awesome, definitely one to own.
This movie-musical directed by Kenny Ortega is a treasure. With wonderful songs that get stuck in your head (the kind you don't mind having stuck there), and numerous classic, funny, quotes, this is one that you can watch again & again and never get tired of.
One thing I would have to say that really stands out about this musical to me, is the incredible dancing. Not necessarily by the main cast (although if you take a moment to notice Aaron Lohr, who plays Mush, is INCREDIBLE), but the extra newsie dancers. They are incredibly skilled dancers & performers. Often movie-musicals, get very downplayed in the aspect of dancing, meaning that the dancing, if any, is very slight and with possibly one big, choreographed dance. I commend Ortega, this musical is jam-packed with big, difficult dance moves & routines. "Seize The Day", "The World Will Know" and especially "King of New York" have dances that leave you speechless.
The best characters in this musical, are not the leads, though Christian Bale & David Moscow were amazing, their characters don't have the catchy one-liners, and quirky, jump-out-at-ya personalities. The best characters are Spot Conlon, the leader of the Brooklyn newsies, and not to mention the most feared newsie in all of New York, played by Gabriel Damon, is roughly, dangerously charming & witty. Racetrack Higgins is hysterical, and with by far the best accent of all. Crutchy is one character that makes you laugh, and you have a warm place in your heart & a soft spot for him. Mush, Kid Blink, Medda & Snipeshooter are a few of my other favorites.
The 'villians' are perfection. Duval is awesome as usual playing Mr. Pulitzer. He plays up Pulitzer's quirky sense of meanness very well. I also loved Mr. Snyder, the warden. He was the character everyone LOVED to hate.
The only bad part of this movie I see is the character of Sarah Jacobs. Towards the beginning, she is not the best actress, and she is unnecessary to the story. Although, the romance element is a nice touch, it seems to not fit well with the story. I do enjoy that she was the only girl out of all those guys though!
Overall, I'd say this musical is one of my favorites, and always will be. I recommend it to anyone! It's great for families, adults, teens & kids!
