Shows that there's more to Canadian film than icy introspection, but it also shows they can wallow in formula as thickly as their Yank counterparts.

Another week, another urban dance movie from the United States.

The formula is so old that you can almost forgive it. What I couldn't forgive is the soap opera/O.C.-like subplots.

...has little new going for it beyond a boatload of energy and enthusiasm. And pure formula.

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.

It's a familiar set-up, but while the story falls back on clichés and trite moral messages, a few dance scenes deliver in spectacular style.

The dance scenes are fun to watch but the script's not too light on its feet.

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.

Disappointing dance drama that suffers from a badly scripted plot, dull performances and poorly choreographed dance routines.

Seriously, it is nuts the way these kids dance.

Creative Loafing
March 16, 2008
The screenplay saddles the characters with too many scenes revolving around tired dialogue, but director Ian Iqbal Rashid compensates by staging the vigorous dance sequences as if his life -- or at least his career -- depended on it.

How She Move is as lazy about its good intentions as most of the other recent dance dramas that may vaguely come to mind.

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

Where, oh where, did this beautiful film come from?

It's actually fairly impressive how many cliches the screenwriter can squeeze into the script.

...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.

When they dance, the effect isn't exuberant release -- every cartilage-crushing stomp-clap gets more and more furious. This is cheerleading in hell.

Urban dance drama is formulaic yet entertaining.
