Movie Info

The first major breakdancing film, Breakin' stars Lucinda Dickey as a dancing student who dislikes the hidebound regimen of her demanding teacher. She breaks free from terpischorean tradition when she befriends a bunch of street kids devoted to breakdancing. Within a year of its release, Breakin' spawned a sequel, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Ruim a ponto de ser divertido, é um produto típico dos anos 80; uma verdadeira cápsula do tempo. Que, diga-se de passagem, jamais deveria ser aberta.

Breakdancing was a man-made scourge, and Breakin' is the price we had to pay for our arrogance.

When I was ten, I thought it was the coolest movie I'd ever seen.

Audience Reviews for Breakin' (Breakdance: The Movie)

This movie was a lot better than I expected. Yes, it is cheesy, but it has a great message for youth which still holds true. Plus the music is awesome, the dancing is amazing, and it makes you want to get out of your seat and start breakin' along with them. This movie is a lot of fun.

Gloriously bad, but meant to be cutting edge. Good times.

The dancing scenes are wonderful but as a whole, this is pretty lane.

Cute 80's movie. Go leg warmers and spandex! Look out for Jean-Claude Van Dam's first ever on-screen appearance!
