Before I begin reviewing the movie, I just want to say first that if
you haven't seen the original or didn't even know that there was an
original, you might not enjoy this movie as much as someone who
respects it's classic status in black cinema. I actually thought that
this movie was going to be terrible. I kept telling my roommate and
best friend that I'm not excited and might just watch it on bootleg and
if I do go to see it it will only be for the late and legendary Whitney
Houston. But thankfully I was invited on a date, so I was relieved that
I didn't have to pay for this terrible, terrible film. But to my
surprise, I enjoyed it from beginning to end.
As an upcoming writer and film school graduate, there are things about
this film that I can truly appreciate more than the average movie goer,
like the costumes, the set design, the hair, the locations, and most
definitely the script. It was solid. For this to be Mara Brock Akil and
her husband's very first feature film together, the script was very
well written. It had a lot of memorable one liners and great comebacks.
Also, the writer put a few spins on the story that worked very well as
Jordin Sparks did very well as Sparkle. I don't think the character was
a stretch for her because she's sweet and shy in real life but for this
to be her first film she did great. Mike Epps as Satin was a surprise
to me. He's usually the smart mouthed side kick in stereotypical black
films but his personality played well with his character. Derek Luke
was solid and Tika Sumpter was awesome. In the original, Sumpter's
character didn't really have much of a story but I appreciated the fact
that the writer's gave her a backstory. Whitney Houston did phenomenal
as the mother. Her vibrant personality is totally opposite of the
film's character who was depressed, unhappy and sort of narrow minded.
But the star of the evening was definitely Carmen Ejogo as Sparkle's
older and sexy sister, Sister. She stole the show. I had never heard of
her until this movie but she was awesome. While the acting wasn't Oscar
worthy everybody did a solid job.
The original definitely had its flaws. There were holes in the story
and unanswered question but I feel as all movies back in the day were
still finding their proper structure. But this adaption definitely left
me satisfied. There was more character development, more backstory and
since the the movie is about family the bond between all three sisters
s what made me love this movie even more. You can tell that they all
loved each other and would had each other's backs no matter what.
I'm happy that the original music was in this film along with new ones.
The vocals were good but of course Whitney Houston dominated in that
department being that she is one of the greatest voices to ever walk
Overall, Sparkle was a solid movie. Very enjoyable family film. I have
a feeling that a lot of people are gonna love this movie, a lot of
people are think it's okay and a lot of people are going to hate it.
But these types of movies aren't meant for everyone's enjoyment, only
those who understand and appreciate this type of story. I recommend it
for all who know the original, all who love good music and all who love
