Spring Breakers is the story of four girls, Faith (Selena Gomez), Brit (Ashley Benson), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), and Cotty (Rachel Korine), as they find they do not have enough money to go on their spring break as they wanted to do. After a successful robbery of a café, the girls set off for a holiday of sun, sand, and non-stop partying. However, after they're arrested, they're bailed out by local rapper and gangster Alien (James Franco), and soon get caught up in his world of crime.

Now, I am the first to admit when I first heard of this film, I had no intention of seeing it. It just seemed like a film celebrating spring break, a tradition that doesn't even exist in my country, and seemed to be nothing more than a movie in which popular 'nice girls' got a chance to get naked on camera. However, after it was released I started seeing verdicts from people saying it was actually really good. So it was with some interest that I saw Spring Breakers, a film that turned out to be one of the most surprising, not to mention one of the best, movies of 2013 so far.

First of all, the acting in this film is much better than I ever thought it could be. Having sat through the first and third High School Musicals, I have grown to dislike Vanessa Hudgens as an actress. I've had no previous experience seeing Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, or Rachel Korine act, and I'm not the biggest fan of James Franco. While the girls don't have more character to play with beyond a couple of basic traits, they do very well with them, especially Selena Gomez, playing the naive Faith, who was probably the most interesting character in the whole film, and who is unfortunately under-used and doesn't have nearly enough screentime.

I love this movie. My friends don't, but I do, and by now I've seen it 12 times. I never get tired of it, because it's always an experience. The soundtracks, the filters, the hypnotic and dreamy nature of the lines delivered multiple times, draws me in and makes me feel like I'm there. And there's always something new to discover. A reference, more symbolism... I mean I still haven't figured out the meaning of the gunshots. This movie isn't for everyone, but it's for me. And the service was as good as I had expected, but that's because amazon is always great;D So five stars from here:)

I warn you now, although this is an exceedingly great film, it's not what it looks like.

The trailer focusses on 4 college girls (2 of which are former Disney favourites Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens) on spring break who get involved in a bit of crime and spend the entire movie in bikinis/less clothing. This much is true, but the way the director Harmony Korine chooses to display all of this is what the trailer doesn't show and what can be quite jarring to less seasoned viewers of Korine's work.

The editing style takes some getting used to with some dialogue from other scenes cut amongst earlier ones, hypnotic speech played constantly and frequent use of unneeded flashbacks. It's like Korine laid all of his footage out linearly, then accidentally sat on it and forgot to reorder it all. What remains is what most people would call "artsy".

Having said that, the film is ultimately incredible. There are some insanely great moments (Britney Spears' Everytime anyone?) and the frantic editing creates a seriously hypnotic experience. James Franco has never been better, and all 4 girls make "brave" performances also.

Just be warned, if you're looking for a straight-up, American Pie style spring break movie of girls taking their tops off and covering themselves in beer, this isn't the movie for you.

The Spring Breakers is loosely speaking a film about american college girls getting involved in a crime spree. However, the trailers are very misleading and Harmony Korine's film is really a sort of psychedelic eulogy to Girls Gone Wild, neon, dayglo, MTV, flesh, money, summer, and most of all the hedonism of the all American Spring Break. Weirdly, sometimes the images, music and themes combine to create an almost poetic air of melancholy.

I really liked the Spring Breakers despite having to be dragged to see it, others insist it's the worst film of the 2013.

Pretty good film, Very seedy little world that these girls come across, but they are more than up for the challenge. If this sort of thing happens on a regular basis - then look out! Great performance from James Franco - very versatile actor.

The plot - US college girls desperate to go on a Spring Break binge, rob a store and set off for outrageous fun. They end up involved in a massacre. Underneath however is a stylish, challenging film that deep down shows that what the girls really want is a life where they can be happy and content in everyday life. Deeply moving sequence when some of the girls ring home to talk to their 'mom' about coming home and returning to college, when they are about to descend into an orgy of mayhem. Filmed in bright colours that hide the darkness seducing the girls.

OK, first of all I will admit that this movie is two-dimensional with zero character development and not too much plot.

Having said that, this is a weirdly moving film with a unique style somewhat akin to a music video (essentially, this is a 90 minute MTV music video). The film successfully manages to create a certain ambience with its stylish editing and use of bright colours.
Certain parts are also successful in conveying messages of consumerism, with Alien's thoroughly engaging "Look at my s**t" monologue.

Oh, and James Franco is amazing.

In conclusion, this film is what it is and though it has little to no depth, it is strangely engaging and unique. It is a good film to watch on a Friday night, it doesn't take itself too seriously and there are definitely few films out there like this.
