pretty good
22 April 2019 | by casey-91047See all my reviews

So Teen Spirit was a pretty good movie, it's biggest issue is that it has a very predictable plot if i told you the basic plot summary (a teenage girl in a small town enters a singing competition) you could guess exactly where it goes. The other problem I have is that all the characters are very 1 dimensional and don't have a lot to them even though all the actors did a pretty good job. However on a technical level teen spirit is very well made. Despite my gripes the excellent sound editing and mixing makes it worth seeing in a theater if you don't have a nice sound system at home. The songs in the movie are also great, despite being cover songs they are very well performed and the scenes they are in are very well shot.
