Movie Reviews

Good teen musical...
CemK | Ankara, Turkey | 06/12/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This one is a made-for-TV teen musical and it's made by Nickelodeon for not to seem behind Disney which had great success with the High School Musical series of films. However, it's a completely different cup of tea. To begin with, the story focuses on a high-school show-band on the one hand, and on the main character Nikko's (Nolan Gerard Funk) journey of self-discovery. These two points really make the film less appealing for the younger viewers for it doesn't involve a cheesy love story (even if it has hints of it) or a basketball team and team camaraderie, or completely cartoonish characters. On the other hand, it's not too appealing for the older siblings and parents group either for it lacks many elements of a proper movie for grown-ups. It's somewhere in between, hence it doesn't appeal to as wide an audience as it should. The songs are so-called rock'n'roll which means upbeat pop with electric guitars, and that's not what it should be... So, you don't have a great storyline to appeal to every age group and you don't have the musical backup to support the weak structure.

Which is a pity, because there are very good performances, especially from Nolan Gerard Funk and Greg Germann. As Greg Germann is around for ages, I believe it's important to have a few words on Nolan Funk here: The young man is good looking, has a strong, good-looking body, and has a voice which can convince people he can sing -at least in a prerecorded format. On the other hand, Nolan Funk is an interesting young actor, because, unlike Zac Efron or other male leads in such films -or his female costar Tammin Sursok for that matter-, he can act, sing, and dance all at the same time! I hope he has a remarkable career ahead of him and his recent co-starring performance at Castle TV series' pilot was promising...
However, the rest of the cast, with Mssr. Germann and Avan Jogia as major exceptions, are not really helping to keep the acting quality where it should be.
All in all, it's a fun film to watch, it has a rational enough storyline, it has above average acting overall compared to the competition, it has catchy tunes and a decent message for a younger audience and not too bad ones for those who like pop, and a great performance from Nolan Funk. The problem with it is that it doesn't really make you wish to watch it over and over and over again. I would still recommend it to buy just to watch Nolan Funk, though."
Great movie
