The A.V. Club | 'Jem And The Holograms' Review

The A.V. Club

Made on the cheap, the live-action adaptation of the popular ’80s cartoon Jem And The Holograms often resembles a mockbuster of itself, perhaps titled Jam And The Horoglams and distributed directly to gas stations. Applying the style (or lack thereof) of his earlier Justin Bieber: Never Say Never to marginally more fictional material, director Jon M. Chu shrouds pop singer Jem—formerly a record company executive, now a mystery-solving suburban teen with a robot sidekick—behind celebrity testimonials and scads of non-original footage, most of it sourced from YouTube videos.

The story is too old to be commented.

Jem and Holograms is just a movie that came out fifteen years too late in the wrong medium.

What do you mean? It should've been a TV movie? Or straight to video?
