Bleu remains one to watch, but only real fans will want to watch this.

Free Style is about motocross and stars Corbin Bleu of the Disney Channel repertory company, two facts that might lead you to expect a certain kind of film.

You don't have to be a swooning teenage girl to be enamored of Free Style and its heartthrob actor Corbin Bleu.

As predictable and cliché as Free Style is, it moves along briskly enough and Bleu is compelling enough that it doesn't wear out its welcome.

A film Barack Obama would approve of screening for Sasha and Malia -- there's even a jab at private health insurers.

Bleu's cute-but-bland act flatlines in every scene of a movie with a script that is a perfect match for his abilities.

Audience Reviews for Free Style

I could go into all the reasons I didn't like the movie, incuding the technical ones. Like the lighting sucks. I can acutally see where things were digitally added into scenes. But I think I'm going to stick with the acting being bad and the fact that it felt like it was cheaper than a made for TV Disney movie. Yeah, Let's go with that. Why do all the little Disney people have their own production companies? Seriously? Corbin Bleu is cute but even looks don't save this one.

This is a surprisingly cornball movie. The plot is too rough and contrived, and we don't get enough of the romance or the relationship with the father. I kinda enjoyed the motor biking race stuff, but SO WHAT?
