Movie Info

This film chronicles the problems of an inner-city Puerto Rican youth who spends a good share of his time as a subway graffiti artist, and follows the staging of a huge break-dancing show. Quite popular when first released, it now simply seems dated.

Critic Reviews for Beat Street

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (3) | DVD (1)

Like the best films of its kind, Beat Street isn't simply a glorified music video, but rather a celebration of the bond between artists and an examination of a culture that goes unappreciated and misrepresented.

Interesting way of looking at a long-dead culture first coming to life.

Audience Reviews for Beat Street

Without doubt Beat Street is the best film about the breakin scene. Everything about it is spot on,the clothes (puma),the music and most importantly the dancing! The storyline is basic,but hey whats there to tell a story about? The whole point of the film is to show what kids of that moment in time were doing,what mattered to them. It shows that teenagers in general are good,all that mattered to these everyday kids was music,dancing and friendship. Having watched the DVD recently i was plesantly surprised how well it had stood the test of time! The clothes didn't look dated (possibly because Puma is now having a massive comeback),the music still sounds fresh,and the dancing is still captivating to watch. A film anyone 10-25 years of age should see as part of their youth culture.

I said a hip hop, hip hip hop and body pop down to your video shop (and rent this movie!). I bet they don't have it in though

Bronx teens who display their graffiti skills want to be seen as artists, not vandals. Too bad someone vandalized the script.
