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.
| Original Score: 1/4
The teams seem to be competing for little more than bragging rights and one of those giant "Toddlers & Tiaras" trophies.
Mmmm-hmmm, it's on. Again.
| Original Score: C
Even the most forgiving viewers may feel like they've been underestimated - and underserved.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Slapdashly assembled and lacking in dance thrills.
| Original Score: 1/5
'Cringe-inducing' doesn't even begin to describe it.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
The dance sequences are energetic and the kids are charming enough, but the generic script is underdog formula throughout.
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.
| Original Score: 2/4
A pic so thoroughly generic as to suggest a contraption assembled from spare parts with the aid of a how-to manual.
This hip-hoppy dance-off melodrama is about as funky as an Amish funeral.
| Original Score: 0/5
Earnest emotions can't quite trump an awkward approach in Chris Stokes' followup to 2004's "You Got Served."
| Original Score: 2/5
Although it's grotesque to see pre-teens stomping in underground warehouse-battle settings, at least Battlefield America's racial politics are interesting.
