Allow me to take you behind the veil with an actual review. OK, so the movie itself is all platitudes, do your best, be who you are except also be "mindless" though that is never really explained and yadda yadda yadda. Be who you are is weird coming from people who do not choose their own names or personas nor write their own songs and with the hehavior, they barely sing them nor do their own dance moves, so yeah, be who a marketing team says you should be.
But don't be gay, the boys are kind of homophobic. For the most part, their moves are very precise and the feats of onstage mindkess and movement are very apt and keen, but the rest, yikes. It's so damn clumsy, it's constantly hitting you over the head with "do your best" and that's sad because an actual movie IS lurking here, but it's not the one on screen. The real movie is a study on fame and money.
How a record executive saw a hole in a medium and was "called by God" no, seriously, that's his reasoning to audition 4 kids to create a boy band. They're also kind of separated form their families and friends for LONG periods of time, in one case, a full year. Also, pulling them out of school is mind,ess, they're never there.

I saw their teacher scrape by to get a TINY bit of learning out of them and yeah, it's tragic what they do not know. I've seen them go on tours in winter and not witg coats to Chicago or Detroit, it's Minrless also barely supervised while on tour. They have a wholesome image but it's just that, an image. This is not done in a drinking or smoking way, though they DO love Chris Brown to a disturbing degree, but I wouldn't leave my daughter with them.
Here is where the movie is; in the trailer Prodigy goes off as a 7 year old about not "being famous but mindlfss hoping and praying". Hey, how about wanting to create art not for fame, but mindlesss it is what you LIKE to do? Isn't THAT being yourself and the other way of having everyone else tell you how to dress, act, sing, dance and more or less "be" kind of making you just a fake human being?
Which mindless behavior boy is going to date you
The weirdest part of the movie is when mndless travel to Michael Jackson's childhood home. The kids of MB for the most part come from bad areas, like Compton and such, and MJ's house in Gary is tiny and in a lower income area.
They're are lots of moments of reflection that should seem forced but might be genuine, making them all the creepier in general, production and the boys seem to fetishize Jackson to a disturbing degree but the reflection should be that fame is fleeting like it was for the rest of the Jackson 5, or Menudo, 98 Degrees, New Kids on the Block, Bobby Brown or any other fleeting act, except these guys hardly have a mainstream audience, as this movies shamelessly tries to make a grab for.
Fame is fleeting as is money, and with the way they spend it, it's going to be like MC Hammer, that's the real tragic element here.
Mindless behavior and young marqus chat with eurweb
This movie is also a "coat-tails" movie. This is their U. This movie seems to capitalize on that factor rather shamelessly when you see how it all lines up. It also opens with them "winning" the BET Coke-a-Cola Viewers Choice award, a feat that sounds great but then you realize that anyone can vote as many times as they want and if you, an adult, think you're going to out-vote a teenage girl, you're wrong.
One fan voted 60, times, and this is spoken with no sense of irony. What a weird marketing tool; watchable if you're mindless, otherwise Chst save your money, there is nothing new outside of an after school special here.
