Editorial Reviews

Cyrus DeBarge (Tyler James Williams) loves music. Leading the choir at his father's church by day, while working as a busboy at a teen club by night, Cyrus is a talented rapper with just one thing holding him back -- his lack of confidence. When a local music show announces that pop star Roxie (Coco Jones) -- Cyrus's former classmate and schoolboy crush -- is judging a contest looking for the next big single, Cyrus submits a track. Much to his surprise, Cyrus wins, but he allows his ultra-confident best friend Kris (Trevor Jackson) to take all the credit while he fades into the background, feeding him lyrics and rhymes. However, Cyrus's music works too well, and when Kris finds himself getting Roxie's affections and musical acclaim, Cyrus has to learn to speak up for himself. Will he take his rightful place on the stage and in Roxie's heart? The LET IT SHINE: EXTENDED EDITION also features an exclusive scene where Cyrus takes on his nemesis, "Bling", in his first-ever rap battle, available only on Disney DVD. The truth is in the music!

Myself my 31 yr old daughter and her 7 yr old daughter sat down and watched this on it's original air date. We have all watched this on every re-airing since. Thia is the first Disney movie that had me hooked from the opening number to the finale. I have already purchased the DVD, was a "must add" to my library. Disney got this one right. I love how it showed that even with young kids Hollywood has a "standard of beauty". The friendship between Kris and Cyrus was outstanding. When it counted each one was willing to do whatever it took to save the friendship. The father the Reverend had some valid points, but misused his pulpit to drive them to his young people. Instead of having a dialog with them, he threw scriptures at them. That is the very reason our young people are MIA today. Mom played a very vital roll, she kept her son encouraged while trying to get her husband to see the error of his ways. If you have not seen this movie, I strongly suggest you and your entire family watch it.

Cyrus DeBarge (Tyler James Williams) is a young man who loves to write songs. He also has excellent freestyle rap skills, but lack of confidence is keeping him from performing in front of an audience. Cyrus' friend, Kris McDuffy (Trevor Jackson), has swagger, good looks, dancing talent and has no problem attracting girls, but he can't rap. Their childhood friend Roxie Andrews (Coco Jones) is now a teenage singing sensation and when they enter her contest, she thinks Cyrus' winning rhyme was written by Kris, and, because Cyrus shies away from the limelight, Kris takes his place.

Cyrus and Kris had been friends since childhood. Cyrus was a true friend to Kris, but Kris had quite a bit to learn about loyalty. I liked both characters, but there was a scene in the club that left me disappointed in Cyrus: I was glad he had found the courage to speak up for himself, but he didn't have to do it in a way that disrespected his father. Later on in front of their house he spoke up for himself in a better way, a more respectful tone - it was a bit funny, actually, and the words his father spoke were very touching.

Roxie was a likeable character. It was clear that she was insecure and it seemed to me that Lyla (Nicole Sullivan) was taking advantage,but maybe she believed she was making the right choices for Roxie. Roxie made a choice near the end of the movie I was very happy with. I expected a different reaction from her when she found out the `truth', though. But then again, if she hadn't responded the way she did, Cyrus would have missed out on an opportunity.

Jacob DeBarge (Courtney B. Vance) was Cyrus' father and he was Pastor of Mount Bethel Baptist Church.

Disney did an excellent job writing and casting this modern day Cyrano de Bergerac story. The music was surprisingly catchy and well performed. Dawn Lewis as Cyrus' (Cyrano) mother trying to teach a group of teens "Precious Lord" was priceless. Tyler James Williams as Cyrus was an effective awkward, nerdy teen with a major crush on Roxie (Roxxane)without having to don an oversized nose ala Cyrano. Enjoyed him in Everybody Hates Chris and see a promising career for this young man in acting (and/or maybe rap???). Coco Jones...wow, such a powerful voice. What a pleasure to see "smart" rap again.

As far as the Extended Version of the DVD, there is a scene cut from the TV version in which after Cyrano accidently spills a drink on rapper Bling's shoes and Bling tells Cyrus that he is lucky the accident didn't happen while he was on stage or he would have embarrassed Cyrano with his rhymes, then Bling comes up with a weak diss of Cyrano that makes Blings crew or "homies" as Cyrano later raps laugh. Cyrano responds that Bling's diss of him was lame and that his rap skills are modest at best and tells Bling that he could on the spot make up 5 better ways to diss himself. Blings crew becomes impressed with Cyrus' skills and at that point he announces to the crowd that the busboy wants to challenge him and of course if you have seen the TV version, Cyrus walks away from the challenge.

My children loved this movie and I enjoyed it as well. There were a few slow moments, but overall this was a great family movie.

I saw this movie on TV and wanted it for my library. I ordered it at 9 PM and Amazon shipped it at 10:15. I had it in less than 24 hours. It's a movie I can watch with my parents as well as the children in the family. It's good Disney fare. Everyone is clothed, the language is clean and, of course, there's music and dancing.

I am a 23 year old college graduate and I cant get enough of this movie. While watching it I forgot it was a disney production. It was obvious they brought outsiders in to help. While other movies seem to have a cartoonish take on the young community let alone the black community that is hip hop oriented I thought this was very realistic age appropiate and fun. For the first time in a long time the kids that look like so many were just that; kids. I cant remember the last time I bought a soundtrack or Dvd instead of waiting for it to be available on netflix or free on youtube. The movie and music is so worth it. The acting and the writing is supreme it was like the characters were written for the actors. Disney and others really took their time with this and it shows. They should be proud. This is entertaining and inspiring for the entire family. If you are looking to be entertained with great music comedy acting and a fantastic plot from beginning to end this is worth it. I can't wait to get it to see what type of extras they have. I have no complaints every element of this was amazing. While most kid movies now a days is cringe worthy to get through I could wach this all the way through and enjoy it. The story is a interesting take on the classic under dog story showcasing popular music. This movie is relevant to all ages races genders and backgrounds.
