SYNOPSIS: "In the present day idyllic kingdom of Auradon, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s iconic "Beauty and the Beast") is poised to take the throne. His first official proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, The Evil Queen, and Jafar, who have been imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost, a forbidden island where all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters are placed upon their defeat.
These villainous descendants are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes. However, the evil teens face a dilemma: Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains regain power by stealing the Fairy Godmother's magic wand, or embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom?"
"Descendants" is essential "Disney" programming, which includes preppy teens in natty dressing and constantly breaking out in song and dance (funny folks choose "dubstep" to represent "evil" LOL), which a cliched script that will never tintillate beyond the scripted jokes … but I had fun! Casting out my desires for slightly more "adult" rated shorelines and happenings, of course :)
Revelation in the form of Dove Cameron (whom I last saw in "Barely Lethal" and who perfored well above everyone else, IMHO) who might well give Ruby Rose a run for the money in the "sultry attractiveness" department, with Dove clearly edging Ruby out in the "acting" aspect, methinks :)
Actress Kristin Chenoweth as "Maleficent" was a real rip tho … aaaand basically everyone else was quite forgettable … except for actor Booboo Stewart - whom I tried hard but was unable to forget seeing him as "James Proudstar / Warpath" in Bryan Singer's "Xmen: Days of Future Past" - I am so not joking :/
WATCHED: On an online streaming site. Not that badly pixelated (as bootleg online streaming websites go…), audio pretty decent too.
POPCORNX-RATING: One box out of 5 popcorn boxes … but it was a fun box! Hence this review :p
