Critic Reviews for Planet B-Boy
Benson Lee's crackling 2007 video documentary follows five teams as they compete for a world title, with one amazing number after another showcasing the dancers' chorus-line precision, gymnastic athleticism, and thematic novelty.
If Benson Lee's intention with Planet B-Boy was to set the record straight on the continuing story of break dancers, then his documentary has to be counted a success. With a few caveats.
What's fun about Benson Lee's documentary Planet B-Boy isn't just the amazingly athletic displays of B-boys he puts on screen, but the film's sense of cultural discovery.
If I could, I would spin on my head to express how much I enjoyed Planet B-Boy.
The seemingly endless performances can be a bit much, but Lee's sensitivity to the need of these dancers to say something about themselves through dazzling moves is memorable.
An exuberant study of the ways competition and collaboration can team up when it comes to the creativity of these guys.
Audience Reviews for Planet B-Boy
Without an interest in break dancing either then or during it's comeback, I found this one difficult to sit through. Boring as hell.
Great documentary that introduces us into the world of break-dancing in various countries.
"Breakdancing has evolved" Jumping continents and crossing cultures, "Planet B-Boy" looks at the history of breakdancing and its vibrant resurgence in urban cultures around the world.
