A steady look at the underbelly of the youth battle dance culture in Long Beach, California. Sean Lewis, a young, charismatic, successful businessman finds himself in the mix with a bunch of disheveled misfits Bad Boys, who have virtually no dance talent. Realizing his dilemma, Sean brings aboard a professional dance instructor to ease his responsibilities to these kids. Meanwhile, he finds himself falling for Sara, who runs the community center where the kids hangout and practice their moves.

A pic so thoroughly generic as to suggest a contraption assembled from spare parts with the aid of a how-to manual.
The teams seem to be competing for little more than bragging rights and one of those giant "Toddlers & Tiaras" trophies.
Even the most forgiving viewers may feel like they've been underestimated - and underserved.
If you're looking for a tough, streetwise film about urban kids who get together to enter a national hip-hop dance competition, "Battlefield America" is not your movie.
Earnest emotions can't quite trump an awkward approach in Chris Stokes' followup to 2004's "You Got Served."
Although it's grotesque to see pre-teens stomping in underground warehouse-battle settings, at least Battlefield America's racial politics are interesting.
The dance sequences are energetic and the kids are charming enough, but the generic script is underdog formula throughout.
Watching stage-parented poseurs play at being punks, mugging for the camera and talking sass to every adult, is not most people's idea of time well spent at the movies.
