Watching stage-parented poseurs play at being punks, mugging for the camera and talking sass to every adult, is not most people's idea of time well spent at the movies.

The teams seem to be competing for little more than bragging rights and one of those giant "Toddlers & Tiaras" trophies.

The dance sequences are energetic and the kids are charming enough, but the generic script is underdog formula throughout.

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.

A pic so thoroughly generic as to suggest a contraption assembled from spare parts with the aid of a how-to manual.

This hip-hoppy dance-off melodrama is about as funky as an Amish funeral.

Earnest emotions can't quite trump an awkward approach in Chris Stokes' followup to 2004's "You Got Served."

Although it's grotesque to see pre-teens stomping in underground warehouse-battle settings, at least Battlefield America's racial politics are interesting.
