Not sure what could've saved this movie.
Honestly a lot of this film felt so lackluster. The actors were basically children, one of which felt like he was trying to be a Twitch streamer and another who seemed too excited to even recite his own lines. Visually this movie seemed very well done but the sound production and plot just weren't there. Part of the plot is that the main gang is trying to stand up for the powerless but the way everything was done makes the message fall flat. I don't understand the point of making this into a 2hr film when it could've easily been a 40min episode, maybe two episodes, on a CW series. There was nothing driving the viewer forward and the whole plot could be summed up in less than a minute. It was really hard to care about the story when no one in the cast cared themselves.
