I'm not sure what the point of calling this Jem and the Holograms is. It bears no real connection to the fun '80s cartoon series. Instead, this is a boring and predictable teen drama that rips off everything from Hannah Montana to Earth to Echo. So you make a property based on an old cartoon and toy line and then proceed to alienate any viewers who might want to check it out for nostalgia's sake. On top of that, your movie kinda blows anyway so you can forget adding any new fans. The songs suck, the actors are forgettable, and the script doesn't have a single original idea. There's also this annoying YouTube crap that keeps popping up. I get it. You're trying to make a Jem for the generation that has such a thing as "YouTube popular." That's an idea that should have been killed in any of the pre-production meetings they undoubtedly had before this thing was made. It's a misfire from start to finish. It likely won't appeal to any of the fans of the original Jem and I can't imagine it will hold much appeal to any younger fans, excepting those who might be crushing on a couple of the actors.

Dear Hollywood. This is how to do it wrong. Take a much loved nostalgia item and childhood institution like Jem, Ignore the source material, alienate the true fan base, Fail to advertise to the tween girl fan base and fail to mention its a family movie suitable for moms and daughters. I hate this movie. Because it is not what it claims to be. Jem and the Holograms. This is Hanna Montana with a be yourself and love your friends final moral.

Advertised as a re imagining(under a different Title) and presented to moms and daughters as a good family movie it could have done well. It is a touching and well told story, The acting is good and the plot is OK. But It is Not Jem. It was not well advertised and Kids now Don't know or care who Jem was. This was a film for 30+ year olds who grew up with it. And had we been given what we remembered we would have rewarded the studio with our money. But it was made for 14 year olds who have seen the same thing before as Hanna Montana.

So ends the one shot we will get at a Jem movie. A badly presented/advertised fraud that was a good family movie and had its potential ignored.

Really - it was truly outrageous because of how terrible it was. Jem in name only. This movie resembled absolutely NOTHING from the series and the acting was so cringeworthy, I could barely watch them spew their lines out. I would like to blame it on their youth, but there are many young female actors who are far superior. I really am disappointed in this movie, the trailer on YouTube has more dislikes than likes, that's how terrible it is. After all the excitement I had about finally seeing a Jem movie in the works, I can't really explain how I feel let down by it. If you grew up wanting to be Jem, like I did, then seriously you're going to leave the theatre feeling annoyed and quite frankly bored. The storyline left a lot to be desired, it really felt more like Hannah Montana than the Holograms - a pretty-yet-plain "uncool" sobbing girl who magically becomes a web sensation overnight, even though she's not a cat playing the piano - it just didn't feel real, especially when a wig and pink eyeshadow are hardly the tools of a master of disguise. It was genuinely nothing like I remember, nothing like the girls who inspired me to dye my hair bright colors and it was a total waste of money.

I loved Jem & The Holograms when I was little. Granted, the animation was simple, story was practically non-existent and the characters were so transparent that the adult me cried blood. But I had no idea that the movie people would do this.

Jem and the Holograms the movie is like they dug Jem from her grave, put some ground meat on her using a duct tape and finally sprinkled glitter all over the corpse. Yes, it's that bad. And no, I'm not exaggerating.

The only good thing about this movie is that we, who have seen it, can warn the others from watching it. Avoid the urge of clawing your eyes out and don't watch this. Also avoid getting your blood pressure skyrocketing by not watching this.

Did I emphasize it enough? Don't. Waste. Your. Time.

People... i think the 8-10 star reviews must be cast and staff of the film... bad... really bad... call it Hanna Montana the reckoning before you call it Jem. Please don't believe what they are saying above.. they already used social media to trick fans with their bogus casting call out and nicked you-tube scenes...

The acting is phoned in and talentless... the plot is recycled bumph that a four year old would wright and was mind numbing boring.. so much so i counted the hairs in my forearm to keep sane.... there were 12 as i pulled the rest out to form my own entertainment. Buy the DVD if you want a shiny Frisby or wind catcher.

Highly disappointing movie. I am a fan of the original Jem, yes, but I am also a teen and part of the target demographic of this monstrosity of a failure. Even if I look at it without comparing it to the original it's just overall bad. The plot was sloppy and cliché (often making no sense how they got from point A to point B), the characterization was poorly done and all over the place, and the dialogue was awkward. The story was much too rushed and was highly unlikely. Normally I'm fine with implausible stories in a fun, light-hearted sci fi about a pop star and her sisters, except they removed all the fun and sci fi and attempted to replace it with forced angst. The most accurate part of the movie was the fact that Rio is just as unlikable as he was in the 80s. If you're looking for a laugh, you came to the right place. If you want modern Jem, look to the comic book series because it is a 100% better reboot.

It's pretty easy to spot the industry reviews here. Took my niece and nephew over the weekend to see this one and afterwards they told me that they would have rather stayed home and been forced to do cleaning chores around their house for 2 hours. It simply amazes me how God awful some kids movies like this one can turn out to be. They have to be paying the actors minimal scale. There didn't seem to be any vision or direction with the script in this one. Seems like they were trying too hard to make the 80s out to be even more cheesier than it needed to be. The acting was terrible in this one. I would not waste your time or money going to see this. It isn't even worthy of watching as a rental.

I don't even know why Universal or Hashbro Studios would even bother green-lighting this movie if it wasn't going to stay true to the original source material at all. I mean, it has absolutely nothing to do with the cartoons or the IDW comic books and it has no idea on what it was supposed to be about. Like is supposed to be like this social satire of the music industry and social media and you-tube stars?! Or is it supposed to be like the "Earth-to-Echo" rip-off about a scavenger hunt leading to missing pieces of a robot?! But, what's really sad about this movie is that there are some very talented actors that really should've been in better movies than this one. And I mean, some actual young talented actors that were supposed to start off their careers by doing some good roles in movies and TV shows. But, this is supposed to be their big break?!

If you're like a huge fan of Jem and the Holograms, whether it's the TV show or the IDW comic books, I'd probably stick with either of those two options. But, don't bother with this movie. You'll just be straight-up insulted by it. But, if you're like someone who has literally no knowledge about Jem and the Holograms at all....I'd still say pick up an issue of the IDW comic books or go watch the TV show, instead.

Bottom-line, this movie was "truly, truly, truly outrageously" bad.
