I first heard of Pitch Prefect when I saw the trailer at the start of the New Year (2015). For months and months, I’ve been dying to see it despite the fact that I have never seen the first one. Well, apart from a few short clips and the soundtrack. Despite these experiences, I managed to see the film and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The storyline was very engaging; it was a little bit slow after the Kennedy performance at the beginning but once the film got through to Emily Junk’s Bella audition, it picked up again. The rest of the film flew by so quickly, it felt I was still watching the first thirty minutes.
The cast were amazing, Hailee Steinfeld who played Emily Junk; her singing voice is amazing when she sings Flashlight. Also, give credit to Hana Mae Lee and Rebel Wilson who were extremely funny and I loved Wilson’s duet with Adam DeVine, were they sang ‘We Belong’.
I thought the soundtrack was fantastic; five times better than the first one. My favourite song is Crazy Youngsters, which is sung by Ester Dean who plays Cynthia-Rose Adams. Its incredibility catchy and I cannot stop dancing along to it. J Defiantly has to be the number one song this summer. 🙂
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Pitch Prefect 2; it has been a happy-go-lucky, inspirational and funny film. I loved the entire ‘Pitch Prefect moment’ and the songs too. Oh, the songs – they’re so brilliant! So if you want a film that is a musical, with your favourite top chart songs; joyful, funny, full of character and you’re a massive Pitch Prefect fan, go and see the squeal. You’ll regret seeing this one if you don not because Fat Amy will come and get you. 🙂
