Is It Any Good?

This movie is an interesting watch if you like films that play with genre, since it combines musical moments with drama and thriller elements. But while this mix can certainly be done smartly -- e.g., in Bollywood's use of musical numbers in thrillers, dramas, and other traditionally nonmusical genres, as well as in American musicals like West Side Story and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street -- The Score feels clunky and more focused on its romantic beats than on fleshing out its hard dramatic ones.

The film's biggest feat is showcasing Ackie's singing talent. Hearing her vocal ability makes you wonder when she'll be cast in a musical that can really capitalize on her talent. She's definitely the standout in The Score, lifting up the songs that could be boring otherwise.
