Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Inside Llewyn Davis
Greg Dean Schmitz
It's a sequel nobody asked for, and unsurprisingly, it sucks.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
It does at least deliver decent dancing. But so do many music videos, and they struggle to sustain interest over four minutes, let alone the 112 that this will steal from you.
| Original Score: 2/5
Just like every other modern dance movie you've ever seen only with less plot and little drama.
| Original Score: 1/5
Even the outtakes over the end credits aren't funny.
Its script seems to have been written by children.
The dance sequences have a certain energy and aggressiveness but the plot is predictable, the performances are bland and the dialogue makes your toes curl.
About as emotionally profound as a tampon advert, and probably less suspenseful...
Pointless sequel is a waste of time, too mature for tweens.
For dance fans, it'll work. But for anyone else watching the movie, there are better films out there, and who's going to watch this if they're not a dance fan?
A two leftfooted, choreographed-within-an-inch-of-its-life, teen movie.
Compared with the redemptive pizzazz of something like Streetdance 3D, there's a soul-crushing, lockstep quality to the lighting, the editing, and the soundtrack.
We've jitterbugged down this path of talented-street-dancing-kid-making-it-to-the-big-time so many times before it's a wonder it doesn't have its own heritage trail through the streets of New York.
It's fine for the genre, but one day it'd be great to see an urban dance flick with more ambition.
Has its fair share of so-bad-it's-good moments.
This genre is now as conventionalised as kabuki and noh theatres in its acrobatic choreography and dramatic cliches.
For all its killer choreography, alas, it's clear this genre urgently needs some new moves of its own.
If only it was a sequel to Bee Movie.
Nearly every dance film cliché is done to death here, but at least the hip-hoppery is spectacular, played out before a panel of judges who make Cheryl Cole look like a genius.
The soundtrack's ace, the dance routines are great, and the eye candy's Wonka-standard.
| Original Score: 3/5
