Came off like a bad TV movie
27 March 2016 | by EK RamseySee all my reviews

Highly disappointing movie. I am a fan of the original Jem, yes, but I am also a teen and part of the target demographic of this monstrosity of a failure. Even if I look at it without comparing it to the original it's just overall bad. The plot was sloppy and cliché (often making no sense how they got from point A to point B), the characterization was poorly done and all over the place, and the dialogue was awkward. The story was much too rushed and was highly unlikely. Normally I'm fine with implausible stories in a fun, light-hearted sci fi about a pop star and her sisters, except they removed all the fun and sci fi and attempted to replace it with forced angst. The most accurate part of the movie was the fact that Rio is just as unlikable as he was in the 80s. If you're looking for a laugh, you came to the right place. If you want modern Jem, look to the comic book series because it is a 100% better reboot.
