Chins high, voices ready, the final performance of the crazy Barden Bellas is here. Rebel Wilson joins Anna Kendrick reprising her role as Fat Amy for the supposed conclusion to the aca-awesome series. Step it up: All In director Trish Sie unites the harmonic squad for their craziest outing yet. Following the success of their world championship, the bellas breakout from their dismal real lives, reuniting for one final show.
The Barden Bellas return for the wacky grand finale of their silly singing saga. Despite an off key sequel these pitches end on a fine tuned high note. Aside the silliness - it's a story addressing how we evolve from our past to thrive in our future and delivers a well earned, teary farewell to the A Capella group.
Three films in - this franchise still upholds it's can do, get up and go attitude; the energy that keeps this singing series on tour. Revisiting this carefree, positive world where everyone sings - fantastically I might add - and has a great time doing so, is an easy to come treat third time round.
It maintains a quick and effective pace - something most films this year have failed with. The music quality is much improved from Pitch Perfect 2 - offering some of the grooviest modern chart toppers along with some old school 2000's classics.
The musical comedy feels like a much better attempt to continue an seemingly one note franchise. Pitch Perfect 3 is a much more honourable crack at picking up where it left off. As a whole, this third outing is a wacky curtain call for the series.
That being said, it's not what the original was nor could it ever have been and struggles to recapture the same quirky charm. Pitch Perfect was that one sleepover movie you couldn't shake off that easily. Sure if you're looking for that same A Capella sparkle of the original then it's nowhere to be found. However, if you admire where the oral only musicians have come it's rewarding and will ensure a fun time with you and your friends.
Bubbly, energetic - driven by Rebel Wilson's rib ticking return as Fat Amy, gelled together perfectly with a strand of ridiculous sub plots. Pitch Perfect 3 is a silly send off that marks the end to this zany singing saga.
I am going to give Pitch Perfect 3:
