Summary: Following their win at the world championship, the now separated Bellas reunite for one last singing competition at an overseas USO tour, but face a group who uses both instruments and voices.
Cast and the Characters. I think a really strong aspect of this movie is how the actresses really feel like friends. They have great chemistry with each other and they’re relatable in some of their misgivings and problems. I think everyone does well in their roles, I was going to go through the characters and kind of talk about them, but I realized, I can’t really do that. So, anyway, I think the standout, of course, is
Anna Kendrick as Beca Mitchell. She is a Barden Bella alumna, who worked as a producer but she quits due to creative differences. She doesn’t really know what she wants to do with her life, she loves music, but isn’t sure what her goal is. I like Anna Kendrick and I think it’s because of her that I enjoy Becca. She can sing. I liked how this movie went back to focusing on her and music a bit more than it did in the second movie as that’s how the first movie started and focused on. Anna Kendrick has great comedic timing and I like how she interacts with other characters.
The others: Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson), Emily (Hailee Steinfeld), Chloe (Brittany Snow), Aubrey (Anna Camp), Lilly (Hana Mae Lee), Cynthia-Rose (Ester Dean), Flo (Chrissie Fit) are all good in their roles too. They’re playing the same characters we’ve seen them play previously and we know those characters, they’re funny and entertaining to watch. They still have the running joke of Jessica and Ashley not being that important in the group lol. But they work well together, they’re a team and a family and it shows. We get to see them have fun in this one and it’s fun to watch them.
DJ Khaled is also in this movie and I very much enjoyed him playing himself in this movie. He’s a funny and larger than life dude.
