BLU-RAY REVIEW: Hannah Montana The Movie

Hannah Montana the Movie

I’m a sucker for the Disney Teeny Bopper movie. I don’t know what it is about Miley Cyrus but she has the mysterious “it” factor that all famous people crave. She can’t act, comes across as fake, at the same time she’s likable and watchable. Unlike her father Billy Ray who makes me want to slap him whenever I see him. He has the anti “it” gene. Especially that awful goatee thing he has.

Hannah Montana as a concept is actually “genius,” what tween girl doesn’t dream of being a secret super star?  Only problem is leading a double life gets tough and you lose track of who you really are. The movie is Disney cute, with a decent performance by Miley. She does a fabulous job on movie’s big song The Climb. There’s a funny, cool moment where Miley does this neat little Hoedown Throwdown Rap thing. The ending to the movie ruins everything that came before it because it’s “Disney Dumb,” she reveals her true identity during a big home town concert and everyone in the crowd yells, “We want Hannah Back! We’ll keep your secret!” So the movie basically just “retcons” everything a few minutes later. Come on! If the whole point of the movie is Miley finally comes out to the public then they should have the guts to stick with it.

The movie’s 1080p transfer is GORGEOUS, when Miley goes home to the country everything just pops off the screen. I can almost see the appeal in bumpkin living. The 1:85:1 ratio fills up my screen. The 7.1 DTS Master Audio is crisp with no popping sounds.  There are subtitles in French, Spanish, and English. Audio language tracks in French and Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital.  I don’t like the Disney navigation system it’s too colorful and busy.

Hannah Montana the movie depends entirely on whether you like Miley Cyrus and the TV Show. This is a showcase movie for her, but it doesn’t take any chances, it’s very safe, predictable and feels like a “manufactured,” property and it’s definitely not going to win any converts.  I like Miley so it kind of works for me.  The Blu-ray disk is a beautiful, full-featured package that is a great showcase for Family titles. It takes full advantage of the platform. Disney even went that extra mile, even the Deleted scenes are in HD.
