Spring Breakers is a film that was released in 2012 starring: James Franco as Alien; Selena Gomez as Faith; Vanessa Hudgens as Candy; Ashley Benson as Brit and Rachel Korine as Cotty. I thought a film that has James Franco, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens in would be quite good (nothing great, but quite good) I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The first thing that made me dislike the film is the fact they where is darkness for the first half hour so you could barely see anything. The timeline in this film was all over the place (I still don’t know if they were on spring break for 2 days, 2 weeks or 2 years) when they first got there they took it in turns to call family to tell them that they were having fun, that it was a magical place blah blah blah. These calls were being spoken over the film when nothing was been said. That made me wonder if the calls where at the beginning at the film or not because who has an epiphany at the beginning of spring break? Nobody. The epiphany comes towards the end.
The main hint that the film would be awful (this is quite a bit in now) was that james franco (Alien who is part of a so called rap group) who has gold teeth was jumping up and down on his bed shouting “look at my shit, look at my shit, look at my shit” referring to his handguns, Machineguns, Calvin Klein boxers, Snapbacks, Nike Trainers so on and so forth. At this point I should have just said nope and turned it off. But stupidly I didn’t.
Alien (James Franco) bailed the girls out of jail and then took them to where his (his word not mine) crew hung out. He then tried to turn them into his groupes but Faith (Selena) didn’t want to be with these guys so she went home never to be seen again. The other three stayed with him (which is when he started shouting about shit) and he trained them up and gave them guns so they could go to his rival “gang” and take them all out. On arrival Alien died and the girls kept going taking everybody out without been hit once.
Personally I just want gangster films like Godfather and Scarface to make a comeback. I have seen enough films about guys who rap trying to be gangsters throwing money at girls trying to get them to sleep at them.
If you wanna know more leave a question and I’ll get back to you. Thanks for reading.
