Thumbing its nose at music video ho's as sex wallpaper, How She Move's got muscular gritty girl power, as females challenge the greater strength and energy of the male performers on their own turf.

The film does have great energy, and some fabulous dancing, but the script could have done with another draft.

With its trite story the film is never going to impress the average critic, but there is energy and passion that make the film work for its target audience, and the choreography is inventive.

Newcomer Rutina Wesley brings dynamite physicality and haunted intellect to How She Move.

...any misgivings get swept aside whenever the dancing starts, and fortunately, it doesn't stop for long.

The film does the right things well enough that it's a satisfying, if hardly earth-shattering experience.

Urban dance drama is formulaic yet entertaining.

How She Move was shot on the cheap in 16-mm. film, and some of it is a little drab-looking, but it has energy and bravado.

The thin and predictable plot benefits from likable performances by Wesley, Armstrong, and the rest of the cast, from some distinctive detail about the Caribbean immigrant population and their community, and from some smokin' dance moves.

As formula films go, How She Move achieves exactly what it sets out to do.

A dance movie that tries to push beyond the formula. In that sense, it's certainly a step up.

Carefully mastered steps are combined with an outrageous physicality to create movement that is part tap, rhythmic gymnastics, military precision and even pratfall comedy. The short film, though, detrimentally shoehorns the plot cliche between the dance.

As we replay last year's step-dance hit Stomp the Yard, the ostensible message about working hard in school gets stomped out of the yard.

There's not much that's surprising in How She Move, but watching how she moves is a pleasure.

The dance scenes in How She Move are so vibrant and infectious that they glide the movie past its script problems.

Most of the energy lost through a leaky narrative pours back in the dance sequences, choreographed by Hi Hat, presented competently by director Ian Iqbal Rashid, working with what is obviously a restricted budget.
