A Visual Worldwide Competition
Having won their 3rd world championship in a row the cheerleading team known as "the Rebels" have every reason to be proud. And one of the main reasons they are so successful is due to the efforts of their captain by the name of "Destiny" (Cristine Prosperi) who has a set way of doing things. Unfortunately, her dogmatic approach doesn't appeal to all of her teammates and when another team known simply as "the Truth" hacks into a live video performance and challenges them to a virtual worldwide competition by demonstrating a superior performance, it sets off a massive reaction around the world for other teams who suddenly feel energized and believe that they can compete in this new format and beat the Rebels as well. And things get even worse for Destiny when some of her own teammates become so exasperated by Destiny's arrogance and refusal to consider new ideas that they leave to form a new team. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was probably the weakest film of the series to date due in large part to the complete lack of realism behind the entire scenario. Everything was preposterous. Having said that , however, I must admit that I liked the performances of Gia Lodge-O'Meally (as Destiny's best friend "Willow"), Sophie Vavasseur ("Hannah") and the aforementioned Cristine Prosperi. Unfortunately, none of these performances were enough to turn this film around and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Below average.
