What is the story about?

The film focuses on the story of Ostra who wants to be a part of the controversial television program "Music Race". An exceptional jury decides who will go on to become a star and who, instead, will have to suffer a bitter defeat. The once-popular singer named Olo, the queen of social media Ewa and Urszula Dudziak are the judges. Ostra is a rebellious teenager and is outraged by the arrogance of a judge who also happens to be her father and behaves contemptuously towards the her mother. It turns out, in a short time, that in addition to an explosive temper, the girl also has an extraordinary voice, but the scandal she creates reaches the ears of the producers who want to milk it for their TRPs. However, success comes at a price, and popularity isn't as pleasant as it might seem.

Analysis

It is that time of the year when Netflix releases a whole bunch of movies and series with happy endings and happily-ever-afters. Fierce, is also one such movie. It is an extremely predictable fare right from the word go. Even a cursory glance at the synopsis would give you an idea of how the story would unfold. This year, I spent a lot of time watching European films and shows, and Fierce doesn't feature even in my top 10 list. It is simply boring and a done-to-death story. It is a typical teen-com with a lot of chick-flick and family entertainer elements. Nothing PG -13 about it at all.

Performances

There is not much to judge the actors, because it is all seems too familiar. Nevertheless, the actors seemed to have done a decent job, even though the story is OTT.

Music & Other Departments

Since the movie is based on a music reality show, be prepared to be introduced to a lot of pop-songs and music. The costumes and makeup also seem to be quite on fleek. It has a stunning cast, but that is all that there is to it. 
 

Highlights

None at all.

Drawbacks

It is completely predictable. Also, the fact that I had to rely on subtitles was equally cumbersome. 
 

Did I enjoy it?

No. It was far too predictable for me. I could sense the climax within the first 10 minutes of the movie.

Do I recommend it?

If predictable, feel-good, happily ever after movies are your thing, you might enjoy this. This is a movie you watch with a cup of hot chocolate in your hand and neatly tucked in a blanket. Sadly, it doesn't work for me.
