Just saw this movie on cable last night before I went to sleep. I have to say, I almost gave up on modern dance movies since most of them are so cheezy trying to bring up the hardcore lifestyle in the street to the big screen...LOL..I think the general public media and hollywood always had the wrong approach and understanding of what dancers go through or the lifestyle specifically the bboys and bgirls on this one, Almost to the point that I don't care anymore..haha
But after watching this I have to say I was actually surprised. My expectations were very low to begin with, but I wanted to give it a shot since its a "break dancing" movie..hehe, I knew some of the names of the people, have seen some in person, the trailer looks somewhat realistic, and since Im a bboy myself, I need to check this out. I believe this is a low-budget film, but that doesnt stop a good movie production. I want to make my own movie now...LOL
The story was great, and it has a good amount of sense of capturing and showing the expressions and visions of a bboy/bgirl. The battle in the end was cool too.
Overall, I'll give this movie an 8.5 out 10. Is there a B-boy movie coming out anytime soon?
Lady Jules the main Character, In my opinion is one of the best bgirls out there not basing it on the movie.
