One of the most aspiring movies I've seen! 10 stars!!
25 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

The story outline was a bit mixed up. I really didn't like the free hand camera feel towards the end when the talent competition occurred. The lead character can sing but I believe audio techs could have done a better job engineering the sound with various location settings. The lead characters were hip, but their acting felt real.

I give this movie two thumbs up because it stirred my emotions.

I am member of the US Armed Forces and I felt the emotion that was contrasted by the lead characters.

The story climaxed at a great timing. The resolution to the climax was set greatly. The lighting was good, audio was good.

I took the time to write this brief review to tell those who have not seen it, to watch it. It is a great movie! Also though it was not marketed very much according to my knowledge, I have watched it on Netflix.

Thanks for reading.

And for the producers and directors that were involved, great flick!

Continue to do more... Just tighten up on some technical aspects of the movie...
