Lina Cruz and her family move from the urban streets of East Los Angeles to the sunny beach town of Malibu - where at her new school, she attempts to beat competitive cheer coach Avery in the Spirit Championships.
A transfer student to a rough high school tries joining the cheer-leading squad and she not only faces off against the head cheerleader, but against her former school in preparation for a cheer-off competition.
The story is about Amber, a mean popular girl who gets electrocuted and dies and is not allowed to enter into heaven unless she helps the least popular girl in school become Prom Queen within a week, but things do not go as planned.
Vivica A. Fox makes her Bring It On debut as Cheer Goddess, the Internet's most popular "Cheer-lebrity." When Destiny (Prosperi), captain of three-time national champions "The Rebels," is challenged to a global cheer showdown by an edgy new team called "The Truth," the Cheer Goddess organizes a virtual battle for squads from all around the world. It seems like the whole world wants to take down Destiny and her team, and they just might succeed, unless Destiny can rise to the challenge, set her ego aside and figure out who her real friends are.
It is the first in the Bring It On Series not to begin with a nightmare sequence. See more »
At around 37 minutes, Destiny is filming a selfie video diary while lying in bed. The shots alternate between over the shoulder as she films and the diary video directly. In the over the shoulder shots, her head is stationary even as she gestures and moves in the video. See more »
Having won their 3rd world championship in a row the cheerleading team known as "the Rebels" have every reason to be proud. And one of the main reasons they are so successful is due to the efforts of their captain by the name of "Destiny" (Cristine Prosperi) who has a set way of doing things. Unfortunately, her dogmatic approach doesn't appeal to all of her teammates and when another team known simply as "the Truth" hacks into a live video performance and challenges them to a virtual worldwide competition by demonstrating a superior performance, it sets off a massive reaction around the world for other teams who suddenly feel energized and believe that they can compete in this new format and beat the Rebels as well. And things get even worse for Destiny when some of her own teammates become so exasperated by Destiny's arrogance and refusal to consider new ideas that they leave to form a new team. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was probably the weakest film of the series to date due in large part to the complete lack of realism behind the entire scenario. Everything was preposterous. Having said that , however, I must admit that I liked the performances of Gia Lodge-O'Meally (as Destiny's best friend "Willow"), Sophie Vavasseur ("Hannah") and the aforementioned Cristine Prosperi. Unfortunately, none of these performances were enough to turn this film around and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Below average.
