Critic Reviews for EMO the Musical
Emo: The Musical is kind of a hot mess. But it's undeniable that there's also something just so damn likeable about these good-looking youngsters warbling about their teenage troubles.
With a love story you can root for, a cheeky sense of humor, and a catchy melodic score, it's hard not to fall for EMO the Musical, which is sure to hit with audiences young and old.
Neatly sidestepping the controversy and scorn that once surrounded the genre, Emo the Musical is a pastiche rather than a parody.
It's a corker concept, unevenly realised, but delivered with enough energy and conviction to ensure you leave the theatre smiling.
The plotting gets somewhat repetitive and a touch of choreography to fill the frame may have helped.
Audience Reviews for EMO the Musical
It's an interesting concept that works for the better part but it never delivers that slam-dunk film that it aspires to be. The talent is here to launch onto the next film and this a very nice surprise for the indie Australian market. The cast is very talented and the writing is sharp, plus very quirky and funny. The only real issue I had with the film is the overall storyline that spends way too much time setting up the corny conclusion to really sit down and get to the core of these characters. The film has a much better setup than the delivery and while the direction is strong, you can feel the shift towards a generic ending. The film should of stuck to a more out there storyline and twisted the narrative around with the odd characters. I'm not entirely sure who the film was being targeted for as the rating is a little high for the younger crowd. A good film that could have been great if it stuck with it independent style. 19-01-2017.
Upon watching 'EMO the musical', I felt like I was watching a parody of both high school dramas and modern musicals and that's exactly what I got, a laugh out loud feel good Australian comedy musical. Featuring a whole loud of unknown talents and plenty of good songs and music, as well as a unique sense of humour hitting their marks when I almost expected not to. Writer/Director; Neil Triffett has done an uncommon practice of taking usual genre tropes and giving it an unusual spin to please audiences expectations if not surprise them to make them laugh or smile. I don't think this film offends any social groups but in a way embraces them as it does make a clever joke. The story is about that of finding one's individual strengths than being forced into a social group or habitual category of people we often see in all high school dramas. Overall, I had a great time with this film, and would easily enough recommend it to the wider Australian public to go and watch.
