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.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
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
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.
Mmmm-hmmm, it's on. Again.
