Movie Review: Spring Breakers !



How is everybody’s spring break going? Mine is swell but is sadly coming to an end. Today, I thought I would write a movie review since I saw Spring Breakers last week.

There was an enormous hype about this movie everywhere, on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc… I have to admit, I was really excited to see it also.

Movies like this can be either really good or really bad. Not in between.

Spring Breakers starred Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, Gucci Mane, and James Franco.

Summary: (yes there are spoilers in here)The movie is about these girls, Faith, Cotty, Candy, and Brit who all want to go on Spring Break. However they don’t have enough money to go to Miami. Cotty, Candy, and Brit rob a local fast food restaurant to get the rest of the money. When Faith finds that her friends used violence to get the money, she’s really disappointed. But they all go to Miami anyways and have a lot of fun. However, the fun ends when they get arrested from one of the many spring break parties. They either had to pay a fine or spend two more nights in jail. A drug dealer and rapper named Alien bails them out. Faith doesn’t feel comfortable with Alien and what he does so she gets on the bus and heads back home. Cotty, Candy, and Brit stay with Alien. Candy and Brit hook up with Alien and Cotty is passed out. Later Alien takes the girls to a strip club and talks to Big Arch, who is also a drug dealer. Big Arch was Alien’s childhood best friend but they are now enemies. Big Arch tells Alien to stop selling drugs in his part of the neighborhood. However Alien doesn’t listen to Big Arch and this results in a drive by shooting. Cotty gets shot in the arm and decides to leave. Candy and Brit are left with Alien and come up with a plan to get revenge on Big Arch. When they get to Big Arch’s house, one of Big Arch’s men kill Alien. Brit and Candy kills that man and continue to shoot everyone who comes in their way. They kill Big Arch, give Alien a kiss on the cheek, and drive away in Big Arch’s car. The End.

Review: They I’m not really sure how I felt about this movie. I didn’t have high hopes but it left me really confused. Like what exactly was the plot of the whole thing? I have no idea. I think that Alien wanted to kill Big Arch all along and after Cotty and Faith left, he was left with the strongest of the group: Candy and Brit. Maybe he knew that he couldn’t do this alone so since Candy and Brit are the strongest, they would  guarantee the death of Big Arch. That’s what I thought.

Another thing is that Selena Gomez was only in the movie for like 30 minutes, then she left.

Rating: I honestly have no idea. I still don’t know how I feel. I didn’t like it, but I don’t hate it.

  1. Good review. The result of this movie is something that’s equal parts enjoyable and uncomfortable. It is challenging, raw, gritty, sad and real, but worth a watch.
