“Bring It On: All or Nothing” is a better sequel than “Again”. This time it’s more about what made the first on such a classic. It also brings a more street vibe to the film. This a find addition to the franchise.
This time the film gets back to the roots of “Bring It On”. This time its about a girl transferring to a school with the cheerleading experience this time around. This time its two ways street, she helps them and they help her too. It’s also more about her finding acceptance on this new squad as it is about showing her old that she can ‘bring’.
This time around, they throw down using street moves. As this is an admiral try a lot of the actors couldn’t pull off the confidence in the moves. Most of the time it look rehearsed where it should look like an extension of expression. But it does add a flavor that the others did not have and you can always appreciate that.
Although I think they tried to capitalize on the names of their leads, it is a fine addition to the franchise. It gave the franchise look at another form of dance. These movies are somewhat becoming the cheerleading bible. They keep trying to find new stories to introduce different aspects of cheerleading to the public that doesn’t catch it on ESPN and ESPN2.
It has a gag reel. There are a few behind the scene featurettes. It has several featurettes show you how to do the dance cheer moves. There are no movie previews on this DVD.
I give it 4/5 Gs.
