2nd November 2009

Disney movies seem to be like a little escapism, that sucks you in and spits you out once the credits roll. Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009) suffers from this, but never once did it suck me in. It was everything you'd expect from a Disney movie of its nature, it has a weak story filled with many decisions and unlikely heroes, people finding out who they are, and a corny nemesis which tries to make everything worse than it already is. They're all the same, High School Musical, Camp Rock, and this. The reason I picked it up was because I quite like the television version of Hannah Montana, it's not my favourite program ever, but still makes for good television. Miley Cyrus is a teen sensation who is constantly picked at for everything she does. Why is this? She is not talented enough to make it up with the big guns of film, and no, she's not the next Judy Garland. Judy Garland could act, sing and dance, whereas Miley can only partially succeed in these areas. Really, from the moment the film starts you can tell exactly what happens, the only thing keeping you entertained is a few lame jokes and some lifeless songs. The supporting cast is a bunch of the television show's originals, along with Lucas Till, Vanessa Williams (disappointment) and guest starrings from Tyra Banks and Taylor Swift (can't wait to see her acting chops in Valentines Day). The directorial work is just a little distracting, doesn't Peter Chelsom know that slow-mo shots are not to be used in bad films like this? No wonder its rated 3.4 out of 10 on But, because I have a heart and enjoyed parts of it, I'll rate it a little higher.
