I boned up on this movie by watching the 1995 version and Stand Alone Complex for a bit, loved the repartée from Major Kusanagi and her crew and hoped it would translate to the big screen. It starts off the same as a typical raunchy comedy about two jocks just trying to get laid as much as they can. Even the soundtrack is good and various. Pros: 10 characters minimum Count: 0 of 1,000 characters 4. So who'd have been cast among the young bucks of Hollywood, and would they have been able to match these performances? Hard to believe, but it was the great chemistry of the two bromantic leads! It was the same in the source material and even the creator of that anime said so in interviews.
It's all pretty silly and juvenile but at least it does so with a great sense of fun and doesn't take it self seriously. Shawn falls for Carly Sarah Roemer; recognized from Disturbia and Nick falls for Diora Molly Sims , who is married to the leader of the camp. Science fiction movies are probably my favorite genre and I also enjoyed most of Scarlett's movies for the past 8-9 years so those two factors were a plus for me going in. It had some goofy moments that could have been toned down and would have been funnier. Visual effects were the only advantage for this film to come out in the present era. In summary, Fired Up may not be a highly memorable experience, but it kept me entertained and it made me laugh, and I think it deserves a recommendation because of that. The rest of the film was finding the truth and other consequences, before it all ends.
If you're looking for some mindless, yet stunning entertainment, then go see it. There are definitely some lines in the film that you will have quoting after watching and hot teenage girls in cheer leading uniforms can never be a bad thing. Now, is the movie any good? The blurb sounded quite interesting and the trailers were promising even though I always take trailers with a huge pinch of salt. But some day later, she's haunted by glitches in her vision which directly connected to her past that she does not remember. That's not how mechanics and electronics work. She played the part of cyborg who had difficulty belonging in a human world very well. The cast is diverse enough in my opinion, though some of them get pretty little screen time.
See it on a rainy day, if nothing else. The actors playing the two guys are actually pretty good, had great facial expressions and funny reactions, they had great on-screen chemistry as best friends and went very well together. I hate trailers that give away everything about a movie. Kudos to the casting agents for this one -- it's fun and lively and moves along steadily to the predictable happy ending, but along the way the dialogue is snappy, witty, and oddly believable. I would actually have liked to see the Major do a few more missions beating up the bad guys.
Take away the spectacles and you have a basic run-of-the-mill action movie. The girl who plays the sister of one of the guys is extremely annoying and totally wrong for the part, her face never stopped scrunching up and her acting was pretty bad. . I've watched Ghost in the Shell at the cinema 3 days ago, knowing beforehand about the controversies that have surrounded this movie for the last 6 months or so. Two guys, Nick and Shawn decide a two week stint at a Cheerleaders' Camp is the perfect opportunity to score tons of meaningless romantic liaisons with lonely girls in tight-tops and short-short skirts. I loved this movie, so I give it a 9.
A good cast who can carry this off with panache and a definite sense of sporting fun - it is part pastiche of sporting movies - all help the time whiz by. From the visuals to the performances, it sounded great. Full Specifications General Publisher Publisher web site Release Date December 01, 2016 Date Added January 18, 2017 Version 2.

In Fired Up, the technical aspects are correct, but they do not have too much creativity; the performances are barely functional; and director Will Gluck drives the movie with a good rhythm, but he does not show too much vision a few interesting transitions are not enough to bring a visual identity to the movie. By the way, it is a cheerleading movie, whatever is said, it takes a while to get to actual cheerleading routines apart from practicing sessions, but that Fountain of Troy maneuver is awesome! Overall this is a fine bit of popcorn absorption but fails to live up the series's standards and fails to give any of the actors much to work with.
But their lusty plan to caress as many pom-poms as possible goes awry when one of the dudes fall in love. It could have been more developed for sure. I have to say that the tank design was pretty poor though. Scarlett Johansson could become a reason for some people to peek into it. The creators adapted a story that had a lot more depth and philosophical insight and turned it into a somewhat generic cyborg coming of age story mixed with an evil corporation doing questionable things. The villain is also very cookie-cutter and has almost zero depth. The rival team is a bit extreme and looked like they were trying too hard to play the villains and their leader got way too much attention with few lines just because she is very hot.
The action scenes flowed so beautifully with special effects. Worse still, a lot of the teaser from the movie are just absent here, and one feels cheated. Lots of subversive little jokes too, many of the characters are gayer than rabbits, and the straight men are caught out in zany compromising situations. The movie doesn't disappoint, it is every bit as cute as the trailer promised it to be. Even Daisuke Aramaki, which was a character that I did like, felt rather bland. So if you just wanna watch top quality girls, this play is just the thing! The acting is really good here and the lines are just so good, I found myself and my flatmates reusing them. The film was fine, but that does not mean so good.
