Realistic

Its a movie of family bonding and reuniting. Forgiveness, focusing on whats present, moving on to a better future ahead. A father’s love/regret to a child A daughters love/hurt to her father A mother/ex love/forgiveness to her daughter and ex. A better world all in a movie.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Fierce is about as entertaining as a good episode of one of the popular talent shows on TV, featuring involving moments and dull ones, talented people and not-so-talented people. The behind-the-scenes back-biting and jockeying on the fictional show -- among the judges and the competitors -- feel pretty generic and unoriginal, but Olo's conflicting feelings about fatherhood and Fierce's rejection of him provide some moments of interest. The performances are surprisingly uneven for a show that's supposed to be about discovering great performers. It's especially unbelievable that Fierce says "I sing terribly," then belts out songs as if she's been practicing in her bedroom for years.
