I just finished watching The Equestria Girls sequel called Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks.
Here is my own thoughts and opinions on this movie. If you don't agree with me, that is alright, since your entitled to your opinion, but no harsh comments please. ^^ And also spoiler warning if you guys have not seen the movie yet. I recommend you see it first before reading this review. Other then that, here are my thoughts. ^^ Spoiler Warning Ahead
I agree with many other critics that this film was far superior than the first movie and after seeing this, I now know why. This has action packed scenes, awesome songs, great characters, and a interesting story. ^^ First let me start off on the story. Twilight's friends from Canterlot High are in need of help when three new students called the Dazzlings entered to the school to turn the musical showcase in the school into the Battle of the Bands. It is up to Twilight and her friends, including a former school bully, to counter their spell with their own band and save the school. I loved the origins of the Dazzlings as well. They are actually sirens whom originated from Equestria when they feed on negative energy (similar to a Windigo). But they were banished by Star Swirl the Bearded to the Human World and were stuck there until they finally become more active after Twilight defeated Sunset Shimmer in the first movie. I also loved the battle between the Dazzlings and the Rainbooms scene near the end. It was almost as epic as the battle in Twilight's Kingdom.
Now for the characters. You all remember Sunset Shimmer who was the antagonist of the first movie. Here she is now fully redeemed but the students still are having a hard time to accept her except the main five; Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, and Fluttershy. I like how she is finally turning things around and was accepting what friendship truly is and how rewarding it could be. ^^ The villains in this movie are pretty good as well. Though they are inferior to the previous villain, Lord Tirek, they are still entertaining and fun. I really like the fact Adagio is the smartest of the group and is having a hard time coping with the other Dazzlings. They also have a great design and there songs are really great to listen too. Tara Strong was awesome as Twilight Sparkle as always and I loved the Easter Egg at the end of the credits, where it revealed the Real Human Twilight Sparkle trying to figure out the strange occurrences in CHS.
The songs are awesome as well and I think my most favorite out of all of them is Welcome To The Show. That song is where the battle takes place and it was sooo epic to listen too and fits the scene. Especially when the Sirens are revealed, I love the Heavy Metal music playing in the background. It just makes it even more bad ass.
Trixie also played a big role in this movie and I like the fact she acts like an antagonist again in this film. Also Flash and Twilight almost kissed in one scene, only to be interrupted by Trixie. I will prefer that Twilight will still go with the Equestrian Flash Sentry. xDD The only flaw I have with this movie is that the story is a little overdone and the Dazzlings could of have a better comeuppance, but those flaws are not to distracting. ^^ Spoilers End Here
Overall, this movie was awesome and I want to know what you think of the movie as well down at the comments below. ^^ Hope you all have a very nice day. 8D
Favorite Dazzling .. <3
