Goofs

In the final scene, there is someone in the concert crowd with a "JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS" sign. They are not known as "Jem and the Holograms" at that point, and further, that band name is only said one time in the entire movie--a few seconds after we see that sign, by Rio to Christy Marx's character.

This Movie Is An Outrage! Truly, Truly, Truly an Outrage!!
6 May 2016 | by (Stockton, CA) – See all my reviews

I just don't understand why the people who made this terrible movie would even bother calling it "Jem and the Holograms" if it's not going to resemble almost everything from the cartoons or from the IDW comic books. I mean, all it is to me, is just some generic, bubble-gum, behind-the-music, "rags-to-riches" story about some internet sensation getting a record deal over night by uploading a video on you-tube with only 3 million views?! Are you kidding me?! That's not how you-tube works!!!! Oh and slap in a pointless scavenger hunt with a fake-ass Wall-E/BB 8/Earth to Echo robot and call it "5.1N3RGY" or "Synergy" even though in the cartoons, Syngery is a highly-advanced super computer with a built-in artificial intelligence created by Jerrica and Kimber's father.

But, what's really sad about this movie is that they didn't get Christy Marx, the creator and head writer of the Jem and the Holograms cartoons, involved as a consultant or as an executive producer for this movie. So, without her, the people who worked on this movie completely missed the point.

Bad writing, bad direction, lack-lustering songs, save for a few, horrendous editing and the acting was alright. But, I feel like the cast of this movie should have gotten better movies than this one.

If you're a true fan of "Jem and the Holograms", or if you have a teenage daughter, or relative and if you want to get them hooked into knowing about the franchise, just stick with the cartoons or go pick up an issue of the IDW comic books instead. But, stay as far away from this movie, period!!! "Show's Over, Synergy!!!"
