Let’s go for another movie review, this time, with Pitch Perfect 2! If you haven’t seen it, I already did a review for the first Pitch Perfect. You can check it out here.
It’s been three years since the Bellas became the first all-female group to win a national title thanks to their unmistakable voices, style, and attitude. But when they are disqualified because of a scandal that threatens to jeopardize their final year in Barden, our three combative champions feel that this time they have lost the game.
With only one chance left to regain their title, the Bellas must fight for the right to compete at the World A Cappella Championship in Copenhagen. Between the pressure of musical competition and the fear of missing out on their senior year, the Bellas will have to pull together to regain their voice and win the championship.
You can see the trailer for the movie, right here.
I have got to say, even though I enjoyed the first one, Pitch Perfect 2 isn’t really what I’d hoped the sequel would look like.
What I enjoyed the most about the first, the friendships between the characters, the song, the teamwork, and the romance, wasn’t that present in this sequel. It was still a good movie on its own, but again, I didn’t enjoy it as much.
One of the things I liked most about the first movie was the relationship between Beca and Jesse because I have to admit, I’m a shipper. But in this movie, their relationship was weird. It felt forced like it didn’t before. I had the feeling that the actors didn’t have the same chemistry as they did before, and that bothered me.
The songs in Pitch Perfect 2 were as good as in the last one, and I especially loved the original one they wrote for the movie. The performances are kind of what saved the film for me.
Overall, this was a good movie, but a kind of disappointing sequel. For me, the only thing that kind of saved the film was the addition of Hailee Steinfeld’s character, Emily. I liked her and related to her much more than any other character in this movie. If you want to see the sequel to Pitch Perfect, it’s up to you, but I don’t know if this movie, or for the matter, the third movie, was essential to the story.
