Critic Reviews for Shine
It's disappointing when the electrifying dance numbers are jettisoned for the lackluster story.
It's Zayas who anchors Shine. His gravitas shot through with mischief sets the film's tone, showing that serious-minded storytelling can still be fun.
The salsa scenes are the main draw here, and while the camerawork is unremarkable - zoom in, then pull back, then repeat - the energy stays high.
Shine: The Movie is at its best every time first time director, Anthony Nardolillo, decides to give us an energetic dance sequence, full of good music, sweat and passion. [Full review in Spanish]
Shine wants to be a dance movie and a piece of social commentary at the same time. Too much of the running time is consumed by the commentary, which has all the depth of a third-grade book report.
