Yes, it's awful. No, it is nothing like the cartoon it is based on. Yes, it has all the obviousness of a product manufactured with the intention of appealing to particularly dull adolescents. For all that, at least it has a glimmer of an original idea. Synergy was entirely unnecessary to the cartoon - there was no reason Jerrica needed a hologram-producing AI to start a band. The movie makes the Internet into the alternate identity-creating device, which is actually interesting. Interesting enough that the movie doesn't do anything with it, instead burying it under a heap of cliches - the mother figure about to lose her house, the perils of fame, making peace with the absent father, a cute robot.

A little bit boring and not enough actual singing. They didn't seem to know what the movie should actually be about. Mediocre acting.

Jem and the Holograms II : Glitter and Gold will have alot of making up to do for the inept origin story that came before it; and whose best scene is after the credits roll. But since this 5 million dollar pile of feces only made half it's money back you'll just have to take what you can get.... which is basically a movie about a girl with daddy issues....and a band.

I watched the original jem and the holograms and loved it this was so disappointing its ridiculous i really am mad that this was nothing like the original

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. If you didn't know to wait for the credits, you would completely miss the Misfits' appearance. I had more enjoyment out of placing people that were in the cartoon than watching the actual movie's contents itself. The hairdresser was played by the cartoon Jem's voiceover woman, so that was kind of fun. All in all, glad I "rented" it from library rather than paying money in the theater to see it.

This film has nothing in common with the 1980s Jem cartoons. However, if you never saw the Jem cartoons this is an okay movie. The best part of the movie is the song "Trueblood".
