Spring Breakers:Review

If you are looking for a film that will be:inconclusive,frustrating and tiresome

Type:Drama (2012)
Length: 94 minutes
My rating (out of 10):3
One word description:Senseless

Overview: A group of teenagers rob a restaurant to pay for their dream summer break holidays and get away from the bleakness and dulness of the reality.The trip ends up being more than they bargained for when they get arrested and bailed out by a drugs and arms dealer Alien (James Franco) who wants them to work for him.

 Sum-up of what to expect:
  • Interesting concept but extremely poorly executed and excessively overdrawn.
  • Scenes of topless people partying on the beach repeatedly shown for an unidentified reason.
  •  A story about friendship,freedom,peer pressure and self discovery
  • Multiple scenes of teenagers partying recklessly or having sexual intercourse.
  • Characters singing Britney Spears songs together (yes really)
  • Many scenes in which women are marginalised, objectified and presented as nothing more than toys for boys
  • Unrecognizable James Franco who plays a drugs and arms dealer Alien. 

Conclusion: A dull film about friendship and self-discovery which demonstrates an extremely stereotypical and delusive portrayal of women and teenagers and lacks any kind of a moral lesson.

  Would I watch it again?No
