The plot is weak, the characters are completely OOC, the rules to explain the new universe don't make any sense whatsoever, the villain is clichéd, the songs sound like they should belong in High School Musical 4, the humor is infantile at best, the morals are twisted, and while the animation matches the show standards, it is not good enough for theaters. This only serves to make sexism ok for both children's toys and entertainment and will make both kids and adults dumber by watching it. Any parent who lets their kid(s) watch this should have their heads examined, and I don't know how much money Hasbro shelled out on this, but it's a tremendous waste of what could have been the picture to save traditional animation! It is also clear that Ms. Meghan McCarthy is an incompetent writer for both television and feature animation who wouldn't know good characterization if it bit her in the plot. If she wants to do something useful that isn't following orders from corporate executives, she should quit while she's ahead before the history books drag her down even further. So in conclusion, I will most likely never see this film other than read the plot synopsis on Wikipedia and I'll be sure never to let my 2 toddler nieces watch this film or by any of the ridiculously priced merchandise that this film's (if I can call it that) original intention was and I hope other sane people do the same. I'm Eric Helgeson, and I'm ashamed to call myself a brony.
